In a recent interview with The Guardian, Zoë Kravitz recalled the word "urban" being "thrown around" when she considered auditioning for "The Dark Knight Rises" 10 years ago. Now, the actress who stars in "The Batman" is taking to social media to officially set the record straight.

Zoë wrote in a March 8 Instagram Story, "I was NOT told I was too urban to play Catwoman in the dark knight. It would have made NO sense for me to even be considered for that role at that time."

She clarified, "I wanted to AUDITION for a small part in the film and was told (I do not know who said this, but this is how it was worded to me) that they were not going ‘urban' on the part. This is something I heard a lot 20 years ago—it was a very different time."

Zoë recalled the moment as a small part of a much larger conversation. "I did not mention this to point any fingers or make anyone seem racist, namely [Dark Knight director] Chris Nolan, the film's producers or anyone on the casting team, because I truly do not believe anyone meant any harm. I was simply giving an example of what it was like to be a woman of color in this industry at that time."

"Again, this was many years ago when words like that were thrown around very casually. And although I'm very glad that we are attempting to evolve—let's all calm down."

During her interview, Zoë recalled wanting to participate in the 2012 blockbuster film but ultimately didn't audition.
