The new and nude cover of Rolling Stone by Zoe Kravitz has a surprisingly moving background story.

Appearing on the cover of the magazine's November issue, Kravitz recreated Rolling Stone's photo shoot of his mother, actress Lisa Bonet, which was published in the May 1988 issue. Bonet was two months pregnant at that time ; He welcomed Zoe into the world on December 1, 1988 with his father Lenny Kravitz. For that reason, the magazine published a photo of her with a white button on the cover of the subject, saving her naked shot. inside the pages.

"I think I was a bit disappointed when they used the image of the shirt as the cover," Kravitz told Rolling Stone. "I think she just thought: I'm doing it, we're going to do it! & # 39;

Kravitz says he expressed his preference for using his own nude photo for the cover of the magazine, to honor his mother's original wishes. "It's less about the image, and more about doing what my mom intended to do," he said. "That feels good."

Kravitz shared his cover, along with the two photos of his mother, Instagram Sunday, writing: "Life imitates art."
