Dawson was born in New York City. Her mother, Isabel Celeste, is a writer and singer of Puerto Rican, Afro-Cuban, and Taíno descent; she was seventeen years old when Rosario was born, and never married Rosario's biological father, Patrick Harris. When Isabel was eighteen, she married Greg Dawson, a construction worker, who "loved and raised Rosario as his own daughter" (Dawson has stated that "He's always been my dad"). Rosario Dawson has one younger brother, Clay. At the age of 21, Dawson's mother broke into an abandoned building on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where she and her husband installed plumbing and electrical wiring, to turn the building into a squat where their two children would grow up. Dawson has cited this when explaining how she learned "If you wanted something better, you had to do it yourself." Her parents divorced while she was in elementary school.As a child, Dawson made a brief appearance on Sesame Street. At the age of 15, she was subsequently "discovered" on her front porch step by photographer Larry Clark and Harmony Korine, where Harmony lauded her as being perfect for a part he had written in his screenplay that would become the controversial 1995 film Kids. She went on to star in varied roles, ranging from independent films to big-budget blockbusters including Rent and He Got Game. The rest is this history she's making, keep doing your thing Rosario! We dare you (;

Fuck Yeah Rosario ! is in no way shape or form even slightly related to Rosario Dawson herself, though we wish we ... We're just a tumblr fanbase. *cough* more like a Rosario news room *cough*

Haha yes! I don’t know why I thought Clay was about the same size as Rosario… but it makes sense; her mother being said to be comparable to an Amazon. Fun fact: Clay has been said (in Rosario’s screen test for the times, viewable on youtube) to be a dj working at strip clubs.

what size bra does rosario wear?

Oh, wow, so … that can be easily googled if you would like to know! Though I’m just going to go with, “an above average size” as my answer. Yes they’re great, who doesn’t love boobs, but give her some respect! <3 No harm, no foul.
