These Photos Of Lisa Bonet Over The Years Prove She’s A True Earth Angel

Lisa Bonet is an icon in her own right and of her own volition.

The San Francisco-born actress and activist played Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show , a classic late ’80s/early ’90s sitcom that spawned the spinoff series A Different World . The spinoff followed Denise to college and we got to see more of the free-spirited, rebellious, and intelligent character who inspired and entertained young people around the nation. Denise was all about being independent and finding her own way — it was a storyline the modern girl could relate to. In real life, Lisa Bonet embodied many of those same traits , so we weren’t surprised as she went on to explore similar characters in movies like High Fidelity . Lisa Bonet has always been the carefree, provocative Black girl showing the world what true freedom looks like from our point of view.

These days, she has a grown daughter with ex-hubby Lenny Kravitz , who is following in her footsteps. We all know Zoë — she’s got her mom’s talent, beauty, and spunk.

To celebrate Bonet, especially today as news of her divorce from Jason Momoa hits the ‘net, we gathered some photos we think capture the light worker beautifully. For those who haven’t heard, she and Momoa (who fathered her two youngest children) announced their split.

“We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding ~and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring… And so~ We share our Family news~ That we are parting ways in marriage,” Momoa wrote in a joint message.

Lisa Bonet doesn't smile or grin. She seems to be deep involved in a Spiritual World or about to conduct a seance. I regret she and Jason Momoa are calling it quits. But, for some reason, I think it's bc of her. Whatever, both are great and their careers have given and his is giving.
