Zoe Kravitz caught out by Mad Max: Fury Road shooting delays

The 24 year old offloaded her Big Apple pad before heading to London to film X-Men: First Class, because she was set to fly Down Under to begin work on the new project, which also stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, immediately afterwards.

But the daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz admits she was suddenly left homeless when bosses altered the production schedule, forcing her to use classified advertising website CraigsList to find a new home at the last minute.

She tells New York Magazine, "Patience is a virtue in this industry. You're told, 'Come on board! We'll shoot tomorrow!' and then you end up sitting tight as it all comes together. Mad Max was a little more complicated, because at one point, we were supposed to shoot in Australia. It was supposed to be for nine months, and this was just after X-Men: First Class was shooting in England, so I planned to let go of my apartment, since I was going to be in England for four months, and then Australia.

"So I got rid of it. And then I found out it was delayed for a year, and I had no place to live. I remember being in England and frantically searching on Craigslist for a new place.

"I've found all of my apartments on Craigslist. I've got good Craigslist luck. I just sit on my couch and really focus on it, and I've gotten really lucky that way. Although... sometimes people lie. 'It's a beautiful one-of-a-kind bachelor pad,' and it's really a box."
