Actress and political activist Rosario Dawson looks nothing short of gorgeous on the cover of the September issue of Latina magazine, on newsstands August 14th. In an accompanying interview, the 33-year-old star – who has once spoken about the possibility of adopting one day – opens up about what will happen to her career when she has children, her high school days and her thoughts about playing Dolores Huerta in her upcoming movie.
On having kids in the future: “I won’t be able to act anymore. I’ll just be focused on trying to make the world a better place for my baby.”
On looking back on high school: “I didn’t brush my hair; I wore platform flip-flops and Converse because I had a height complex. I would roll in wearing my pajamas, just in the nick of time before class started. And that’s still me.”
On being both excited and terrified to play “amazing icon” Dolores Huerta in the upcoming Chavez, which chronicles civil right leaders Cesar Chavez and Huerta’s fight for farmworker rights in the 1960s: “They weren’t these regimented people; they were intense but they did have fun moments.”
