Rosario Dawson, who is back in the movie business after taking time off for the election, sobbed the first time she read the script for her upcoming film, Seven Pounds, on a flight to Los Angeles.
Playing a woman with a heart condition who falls for Smith’s character, Dawson said, “I loved it so much… I’m not a public crier per se, and I’m just sitting on this plane with people… I was a weepy mess.”
After seeing the drama (due out this Christmas) at a screening with her costar, Dawson added, “I was sitting there… crying, with a tissue, trying to be cool about it. Will walked out crying and I was like, ‘Oh, thank God – not just me.'”
