Who Is Rosario Dawson
This strong-jawed beauty who can check off Afro-Cuban, Puerto Rican and Native American on her census form is more than just a pretty face. With support for countless non-profits and an iconic acting career, it makes you believe in positive karma when you know that Rosario was discovered one afternoon while sitting on her front porch.
American actress Rosario Dawson has a net worth of $16 million dollars, as of 2020.
A born and raised New Yorker, Rosario wasn’t new to the hardships of poverty that she would later reenact in her career. Rosario, who was no stranger to tenement and squat conditions, got the kind of break that would eventually take her out of the slums of the Lower East Side and into celebrity when she was just 15. While hanging out on her front porch, Rosario was approached by two photographers, one of whom was infamous screenwriter/director Larry Clark, who cast the teen in the controversial 1995 movie Kids.
Although Rosario’s first job didn’t immediately boost her into stardom, it was a start. She landed supporting roles in flicks like Side Streets (1998) and Down to You (2000) before landing a spot in Josie and the Pussycats. And things only heated up for Rosario when she began to land roles in more three-dimensional flicks like Shattered Glass (2003) and Alexander (2004).
Rosario scored the lead in what seemed like the movie of 2005 Rent when the original actress cast as the HIV-infected stripper Mimi Marquez found herself pregnant and could no longer participate in the flick. The native New Yorker played her drug addicted character to a T. That same year, Rosario landed a spot in another urban flick (this time sans her killer vocals) in Sin City.
But Rosario didn’t need Sin City to get the courage to ask out a cutie she spotted at a café while in France in 2008. Rosario had been eyeing a man across the café before she left her seat to ask him if he had noticed her. He, who turned out to be French DJ Mathieu Schreyer, admitted that the two have been calling each other petit ami ever since.
That same year, Rosario started work on a heavy drama with Will Smith (whom she had previously worked with in Men in Black II). The heart wrenching Seven Pounds won Rosario an NAACP Image Award for Best Actress.
Rosario has proven that she can successfully transition from a young harlot to a singing, dancing druggie to a romantic lead who can outshine even Will Smith. From Lower East Side squatter to upper crust starlet, Rosario has made quite the journey and we’re guessing that the end is nowhere in sight.
Defining Quote “I was discovered into acting, but singing and dancing have always been my dream and fantasy. Some kids want to be a ballerina, or a princess, but I’ve always wanted to sing and dance.”
