This stunning and resourceful actress has been primarily a film player thus far. Only recently has she been opening herself up more to doing television (the series Gemini Division (2008), which she executive-produced), and animated voice-overs. Dawson's powerhouse talent stands out the most in edgy, urban filming that dates back to 1995 when she was only sixteen.

Her career actually started as a child when she made a minor showing on the children's show, Sesame Street (1969). As the story goes, she was "discovered" as an adolescent on her front porch step by two photographers. One of them, Harmony Korine, was an aspiring screenwriter who thought the inexperienced sixteen-year-old was ideal for the controversial cult film Kids (1995), in which she would portray a sexually active adolescent. It took time for Rosario's film career to kick in after that, but by the late 1990s, she had nabbed several independent films. Since then, she has moved into main-stream hits (and misses) and has surprised viewers with her earthy, provocative, uninhibited approach to her roles.

The Truth About Rosario Dawson's Sexuality

Rosario Dawson is an accomplished actress known for her starring roles in Josie and the Pussycats, Men in Black II and hit shows such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jane the Virgin, but she also happens to be an activist, a partier, and someone who became famous accidentally. Beyond all of that, she's also made headlines over questions about her sexuality.

In 2018, she shared an Instagram post that many interpreted as her identifying as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, but during an interview with Bustle in February 2020, she attempted to clarify her identity. "People kept saying that I [came out] ... I didn't do that," she said. "I mean, it's not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now." Dawson added, "I've never had a relationship in that space, so it's never felt like an authentic calling to me."

Regardless of how Dawson identifies her sexuality, there is one thing that certainly seems to be "authentic" — her relationship with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker

Personal life

Dawson is a self-professed Trekkie who mentioned both her and her brother's love of Star Trek in an interview with Conan O'Brien, and also demonstrated her knowledge of several Klingon words.

Dawson briefly dated writer and actor Jason Sudeikis in 2010. Dawson was in a relationship with director Danny Boyle during shooting of the film Trance, which he directed and she starred in, in 2013.

Dawson adopted a 12-year-old girl in 2014.

From 2016 to 2017, Dawson dated comedian and television host Eric Andre.

In March 2019, Dawson confirmed that she is in a relationship with United States senator Cory Booker.

In October 2019, Dedrek Finley, a trans man, filed a case in Los Angeles against Dawson and her family for alleged incidents involving discrimination, verbal abuse, misgendering and physical assault. Finley had been employed as a handyman, living with the family and had known them for decades. Through their attorney, the Dawson family said that they are "saddened and disappointed by these false and baseless allegations." In August 2020, 18 of the 20 accusations, including those against Dawson herself, were voluntarily dropped by the plaintiff.


In 2018, Dawson made a post to Instagram which was widely perceived as her coming out; when asked about this in a 2020 interview, she stated that this had not been her intention, and further specified that although "it's not inaccurate", she had never "had a relationship in that space.
