Bonet became interested in acting at an early age, and as a child she was already landing small roles in various television shows. She graduated from the North Hollywood Celluloid Actor’s Studio where she majored in acting, after which her big breakthrough was being cast in the role of Denise Huxtable Kendall in “The Cosby Show” in 1987. Becoming a recognizable face all over the world increased Lisa Bonet’s net worth, and her marketability. She appeared in the show’s spin-off “A Different World”, thus leaving “The Cosby Show” for a while, and for her role in the show she received an Emmy Award nomination.

Concurrently in 1987, Lisa Bonet starred alongside Mickey Rourke in the movie “Angel Heart”, which was also popular, and she became more recognised outside of the world of television. One year later she appeared in a supporting role in “Enemy of the State”, and her other notable appearances have been in the movies “High Fidelity”, “Whitepaddy”, and “Biker Boyz” in which she played the character Queenie. Her latest works are in the role of Maya Daniels in the US TV show “Life on Mars”, broadcast by the ABC, plus in the TV series “Girls” and “Ray Donovan” in 2016.

The star’s personal life is just as talked-about as her acting career. In 1992, Bonet decided to legally change her name to Lilakoi Moon, although professionally she is still known as Lisa Bonet. Her relationship with famous musician Lenny Kravitz was often discussed in the tabloids; the couple married in Las Vegas in 1987 after two years of dating, but divorced six years later – they have a daughter. 2005 saw the beginning of her relationship with actor Jason Momoa who became her husband in 2007. At age 39 Lisa Bonet gave birth to her second daughter, followed by a son in 2008. Lisa currently lives in Los Angeles with all her children, in a home she purchased for a million dollars in 1998.

1We use a Native American tradition of the talking stick. You sit and pass it around and whoever has the stick has to talk. Some people just hold it. Others really share.
2I'm writing a film. With our access to these powerful media, we're going to take over, because it's really disgusting what is put out there now to be consumed.
3Success made me self-sufficient, but it also took away my anonymity. I'm just this quiet nobody, and all of a sudden people are nervous around me. That was kind of weird.
4The Cosby years were a major part of my life, but it is the past; I don't really concentrate on it.
5My mother, brave woman, lost her whole family when she decided to marry a black man in the '60s. When the marriage fell apart, she had to come back to her family.
6When I was 16 I was fortunate enough to get Cosby and move to New York and shift my whole life. that had been my dream all along, and it came true.
7An instructor once told me that when there's resistance in your body, it's only because of the resistance in your mind. It's about getting inside the pose. Being the breath.
8It's from our sufferings that we form our consciousness.
9I have a desire to create more film, more beauty, more art, more love, but I don't feel desperate. It's not about creating or building a career.
10I felt devalued and disrespected. The energy behind it felt disingenuous and motivated by corporate profit.
11I'm part of an important movement that needs to happen.
12I'm a shy person. I don't know if it's in my DNA to share with the world.
13I was obsessed with the Olympics. It's so exciting to see that level of excellence and endurance.
14I took solace in my relationship with God who, along with my dog, was my best friend growing up.
15I spent a lot of time feeling alienated and rejected.
16Having a mate has given me that feeling of safety.
17That industry expects you to prove yourself over and over again. Do I stay doing this, or do I raise my daughter and live surrounded by people who love me? Wasn't even really a choice.
18Once a week we go to juvenile hall and talk to boys there. Just go and spend a day in the juvenile courts.
19I work with youth offenders in LA, I've heard them speak and see how music manipulates them.
20Prisons are like the concentration camps of our time. So many go in and never come out, and primarily they're black and Latino.
21Having Zoe saved my life. It was my wake-up call. There were so many things I didn't want to pass on to her.
22I was literally the black sheep of the family, and there were definitely moments of discomfort while my grandmother was working through her racism.
23Both of my parents would say they were atheists, so where I inherited my connection to God I don't know. But it's natural. No Bible, no Torah, just the love religion.
24My desire to participate in the business is not to make more crap.
25A group of us started a community center in Santa Monica. We've tried different programs, and three have worked really well. A poetry group. Once a week we visit Venice High and talk to girls at risk.
26My life is art. Its how I express God.
27Everyone has their story. Everyone has issues. You have to face your fears.
28We're getting ready to take over the world. My group of girlfriends - we're renegades.
29What saddens me is the corruption of youth and beauty, and the loss of soul, which is only replaced by money.
30Let those who know know, and let me keep what little privacy I can.
31It's okay to be a freak.
