Kravitz's joy at daughter's film

Lenny Kravitz was filled with pride when he saw his daughter Zoe in X-Men: First Class.

The 22-year-old, who plays mutant Angel in Matthew Vaughn's superhero prequel, impressed her American Woman rocker dad immensely. He told Rolling Stone: "I just saw her in X-Men. That was a trip!

"I'm really proud of her. How cool is it to go to the movies and see your daughter flying around the screen?"

Lenny is thrilled about his own film roles, which include playing Cinna in the forthcoming Hunger Games movie.

"I'm really excited to be playing Cinna. Reading the book, I'm seeing everything - the Capitol, the arena, all this stuff. This world is going to be incredible," he said.

"I hadn't read the book yet, so I didn't know what it was. I go out and get the book, read it - oh, wow."

The big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novels of the same name - set to be released next year - will be Lenny's second feature film after a widely praised supporting role in 2009's Precious.

While rock and roll remains his focus, he's looking forward to doing more acting.

"I'm not just trying to push my [movie] career forward... I want to do the right things. Precious was a great way to start, really low-key, and now this. We'll see where it goes from here," he added.
