Lisa Bonet is disgusted by the Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations that are growing in number with time. Even though the former Cosby Show star hasn't spoken out and voiced her thoughts, daughter Zoe Kravitz spoke on her behalf during a recent interview with the Guardian.

When asked during the interview whether Lisa Bonet had discussed the allegations against Bill Cosby with her, Zoe Kravitz said she hadn't.

"She hasn't, she really hasn't. She'd plead the fifth, even to me. I think she's just staying out of it," Kravitz said.

"She's just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don't think she has any insight," Zoe Kravitz added. "It's news to her as well."

Lisa Bonet played the role of Denise Huxtable, the second daughter of Cliff and Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Bill Cosby played Cliff Huxtable, with Phylicia Rashad in the role of Clair. Lisa Bonet later played a married Denise Kendall on the popular family show.

"She was on the show for a long time. She's also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder," Zoe Kravitz (whose dad is Lisa Bonet's ex-husband Lenny Kravitz) said, alluding to speculation about her mom's experience with Cosby, and whether she was might even have been among his alleged victims. "She's a very straightforward person. If there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any women who had been abused, she would say something."

Bill Cosby has thus far been accused of sexually assaulting several dozen women. Many have accused him of both drugging and raping them.

Lisa Bonet has never been quiet or withdrawn. She seems like the type that if she were among Bill Cosby's alleged victims, someone would certainly know by now.
