The X-Men: First Class star, daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, hasn't revealed which role she was interested in, but she alleges she wasn't even given the chance to prove her talents to casting bosses.

She tells Nylon magazine, "In the last Batman movie they told me that I couldn't get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren't 'going urban'. It was like, 'What does that have to do with anything?' I have to play the role like, 'Yo, what's up, Batman? What's going on wit chu (sic)?'"

Kravitz reveals her talents have previously won filmmakers over and prompted them to rework certain characters, like her part in 2007's The Brave One, opposite Jodie Foster.

She says, "That part was written for a white Russian girl. I auditioned, and they changed the role for me."

The 26 year old, whose parents are both half African-American and half Ashkenazi Jewish, admits she never identified with her African roots as a child and when she attended a predominantly white school, she would tell her classmates, "I'm just as white as y'all."

She explains, "I identified with white culture, and I wanted to fit in. I didn't identify with black culture, like, I didn't like Tyler Perry movies, and I wasn't into hip-hop music."

Kravitz later learned "black culture is so much deeper than that", adding, "Then I got older and listed to A Tribe Called Quest and watched films with Sidney Poitier, and heard Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. I had to un-brainwash myself. It's my mission, especially as an actress."
