Jason and Lisa’s relationship explored
Jason and Lisa reportedly met at a Los Angeles jazz club in mid 2000s after being introduced to each other through mutual friends.
“I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met,” Lisa revealed to Porter magazine back in 2018.
In a previous interview, Jason revealed that he had crush on Lisa when he was a kid but spared her the details until they had children together.
They tied the knot in a secret ceremony in 2017 after dating for 12 years.
Jason and Lisa have two children together, daughter Lola, 14 and son Nakoa-Wolf, 13.
Opening up about fatherhood in a 2016 interview with Men’s Health, the Dune star said: “I really can’t tell you what the hell I was doing before I had kids. Just f*****g off. Wasting time. I think I was pretty reckless and definitely a bit out of control. Now I’m more focused. I probably love myself more and take care of myself more because I want to stick around.”
Lisa welcomed her 33-year-old daughter, actress Zoë Kravitz, with her ex-husband Lenny Kravitz. They were married from 1987 to 1993.
