The Seven Pounds star and New York native (she was discovered on a stoop in Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighborhood) also opens up in the magazine’s revealing “Screen Test” series, where she reflects on The Rocky Horror Picture Show (which left the biggest impression on her), nudity on film and her mother unorthodox way of disciplining her (she licked her face)!
Former 3rd Rock From the Sun star turned indie cutie Joseph Gordon-Levitt partners up with comeback kid Mickey Rourke in the crime thriller Killshot based on the novel by Elmore Leonard.
Rourke and Levitt’s onscreen partnership is reminiscent of Russell Crowe and Ben Forster in 3:10 to Yuma; Rourke’s the calm veteran hitman and Levitt’s the young maniac killer in training that never seizes the opportunity given by Rourke to ascend from his amateurish ways. Levitt, an extremely talented actor, has brilliantly played this self-destructive role before (see Mysterious Skin, Stop-Loss), that’s why Blindie’s anticipating Levitt’s upcoming departure role as Cobra Commander in Stephen Sommers’ G.I. Joe.
Rosario Dawson plays the supporting role as Levitt’s girlfriend and was very much underused here. Judging from her performance in Seven Pounds, Blindie knows she can bring it.
Mickey Rourke’s comeback is definitely not a one hit wonder, look for him in Iron Man 2 and he’ll re-team with Rosario Dawson in Sin City 2.
Killshot is yet another exploration in the criminal psychology and competitiveness between men where women are merely glanced at from a peripheral.
Serving as host of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Seven Pounds star Rosario Dawson shined in a hilarious parody of the animated flick, Aladdin.
In the skit, Dawson as Jasmine celebrates her 10-year anniversary with her love Aladdin. Singing a bitter rendition of their hit song, “A Whole New World,” Dawson sounds amazing–making Blindie recall her stint as Mimi in Rent.
Looking beyond gorgeous and uber luminous, the politically active Latina, whom we named as our favorite starlet of 2008, last appeared on the magazine’s cover in February 2007.
Blindie can remember when we first got hooked on the Twilight saga, dedicating entire days to reading the four books by author Stephenie Meyer. Now it seems there’s another victim to the vampire series: Rosario Dawson!
“I just read the first book, it’s ridiculous, it’s like crack cocaine. I read it for 10 hours straight until I finished it,” Dawson, told People magazine at the Seven Pounds premiere Monday.
“My dad is going to hate me, because I spend zero time with him, reading these books,” the 29-year-old beauty added. “It’s like Judy Blume and Anne Rice had a child and made this book. I’m so attracted.”

Here is the second installment of Blindie’s on-going quest to uncover the racial identity of some of Hollywood’s multi-racial celebrities.
Wentworth Miller: The Prison Break star played a young Anthony Hopkins trying to hide his African American heritage in 2003’s The Human Stain and in real life, Miller’s racial make-up reads like a laundry list of races and includes African American, Jamaican, German, Jewish, Lebanese, and Syrian, just to name a few.
Rosario Dawson: the Seven Pounds star has a mother of Puerto Rican and Afro-Cuban background and a father of Irish and Native American heritage.
Taylor Lautner: the teen star plays Quileute tribe member Jacob Black in the vampire flick Twilight and lays claim to French, Dutch and German as well as Native American ancestry in real life.
Zoe Saldana: the Star Trek beauty was born in New Jersey and has a Puerto Rican mother and a Dominican father.
Corbin Bleu: the High School Musical triple threat has a mother of Italian heritage and a father of Jamaican ancestry.
Cash Warren: the Yale University grad is married to Jessica Alba and is the son of the African American actor of the 1980s hit series Hill Street Blues Michael Warren.
But this girl wasn’t any girl, she was supermodel Iman of David Bowie fame.
“I did a photo shoot for her, and she suddenly took off her T-shirt to change into another and I was like, ‘Damn!'” the 29-year-old actress told Playboy. “She was so beautiful, elegant, classy and timeless, and there was something really exotic about it.”
“Very few human beings have been that sexy and desirable,” Dawson added. “I wanted to say, ‘You are sculpted by God.’ I was like, wow.”
