Vanity Fair: Lenny Kravitz Says Cinna is a “Very Understated” Role
The very recent buzz about you hasn’t been about rock ’n’ roll but rather about you being cast as Cinna, the stylist in the adaptation of The Hunger Games. What can you talk about?
Not too much. They’re keeping it under wraps. You know the book. I’m really excited. The world that they portray in the book is quite amazing. I am looking to see how [director] Gary Ross puts it together. He called me personally. He had seen Precious and was impressed with how I played the role. How I pulled it back. It’s a very understated role And Cinna is a kind of caretaker.
Do you want to do more acting? Would you ever do a comedy?
Completely! When you see this video to “Stand,” my first single, it’s a comedy. People tell me that I’m funny.
