Lisa Bonet, the actress who played Denise Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," is "disgusted and concerned" about the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby, but she's likely to stay mum in public, her daughter said this week.

"She's just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is," Zoë Kravitz, 26, told The Guardian. "But I don't think she has any insight. It's news to her as well."

"She was on the show for a long time. She's also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder," Kravitz continued.

"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."

Kravitz is the daughter of Bonet and her ex-husband, musician Lenny Kravitz. An actress herself, Kravitz was recently featured in "Mad Max: Fury Road" and the "Divergent" series, and is currently promoting her new film, "Dope."

When the interviewer asked Kravitz if she'd discussed the Cosby allegations with her mother, she answered in the negative.

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

According to Entertainment Tonight, over 46 women have alleged that Cosby sexually assaulted them, including former "Cosby Show" actress Eden Tirl.

Bonet, 47, who played Cliff and Clair Huxtable's second-eldest daughter on the show, was 17 years old when she began and 23 when she left.
