Lisa Bonet

Who is Lilakoi Moon? The world knows here as Lisa Bonet is an Emmy Award-nominated American actress. She is best known for portraying the character of Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show and its spinoff A Different World.

Lisa Michelle Bonet was born November 16, 1967 in San Francisco, California. Her African American father, Allen, was an opera singer, and her Jewish American mother, Arlene, was a teacher as well as a younger sister who attended an elite private school in Marin County north of San Francisco. Lisa has had limited interaction with her family for several years for unknown reasons. [1][2] [3][4] Bonet attended Reseda High School in Reseda, California, and Celluloid Actor's Studio in North Hollywood where she majored in acting.[5]

After appearing in guest spots on television series as a child, Bonet landed the role of Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show alongside Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashād, among others. In 1987, she left The Cosby Show to star in her own series, A Different World. That year, Bonet accepted the role of Epiphany Proudfoot in the movie Angel Heart opposite Mickey Rourke, directed by Alan Parker. Her part in the film was controversial: she appeared in a graphic sex scene with costar Rourke, and some scenes had to be cut to avoid an X rating.[6] After announcing her pregnancy during the run of A Different World, Bonet left the series.[7] The following year, she returned to The Cosby Show, but was fired in 1991 for "creative differences".[8][9]

After The Cosby Show, Bonet began to accept jobs on straight-to-video releases and made-for-TV movies. In 1998 she had a supporting role in Enemy of the State with Will Smith. In 2000, she appeared in the movie High Fidelity. In 2003, she played the role of Queenie in Biker Boyz which reunited her with former co-star Kadeem Hardison of A Different World.

In August 2006, Bonet appeared in a week-long A Different World reunion special that aired on Nick at Nite, along with fellow co-stars Hardison, Jasmine Guy, Cree Summer, Dawnn Lewis, Darryl M. Bell, and Sinbad. That same year, Bonet co-starred in the 2006 film Whitepaddy, alongside Sherilyn Fenn, Hill Harper, Debra Wilson, Karen Black, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

On her 20th birthday, she eloped with singer Lenny Kravitz in Las Vegas. Bonet recalled of their relationship:

“ It was interesting when we were first finding out about each other, that our backgrounds were so similar. When I first told him my mom was Jewish, and he said 'So's my dad,' I thought that was both unusual and enchanting. I felt like, 'Okay, here's someone who really knows how it is.' And I think I trusted him a little more with my feelings and let him inside a little more than I ordinarily would have.[3] ”

She gave birth to daughter Zoë Isabella on December 1, 1988. She and Kravitz separated and eventually divorced in 1993.

It was around this time (1992) that Bonet legally changed her name to Lilakoi Moon, although she still uses the name Lisa Bonet for her entertainment career.[10]

On July 23, 2007, Bonet gave birth to her second child, daughter Lola Iolani Momoa. This is her first child with Jason Momoa, an actor noted for his roles in the television shows Baywatch and Stargate Atlantis.

In October 2008, Bonet announced she is expecting her third child and her second child with Momoa.[11] On December 15th Bonet and Momoa had a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.[12] more
