Tag Archives: Rosario Dawson
Guys name their man parts all the time, so it's definitely no biggie that Rosario Dawson decided to give her girly bit a little title of its own, but what is surprising is the nickname she chose ... "The General."
Evidently, James McAvoy's character has a thing for bareness below the britches, so Dawson had to go to extremes to prepare for her rather expositional close-up.
"Waxing hurts!" she said. "I wasn't thrilled about that. The General, she was angry with me for a little while!" Get More »
Since she was pulled off the streets of New York at age 14 to star in the controversial "Kids," Rosario Dawson continues to make an impression on screen with her provocative choices. Whether she goes for laughs in "Clerks II," takes a wild ride in Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" or becomes a lethal warrior prostitute in Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City," Dawson rarely plays it safe.
Dawson continues her cinematic fearless streak in Danny Boyle's mind-bending "Trance," which opens in U.S. theaters on April 5. The film tells the story of a fine art auctioneer named Simon (James McAvoy) mixed up with a criminal gang headed by Franck (Vincent Cassel), who seeks out the help of mysterious hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Dawson) to recover a lost Goya painting. The stakes quickly rise in this modern noir as the boundaries between reality, hypnotic suggestion and suppressed emotions blur.
We sat down for a face-to-face session with the always hypnotic Dawson and chatted about her susceptibility to suggestion, why she's okay with being nude in "Trance" and what freaks her out more than anything. Get More »
WARNING: Somewhat NSFW.
Once upon a time (read: the '80s), movie fans could count on the fact that at some point, someone in the movie would randomly drop trou or rip off their shirt for no apparent reason whatsoever. And frankly, it was great. After all, why worry about things like plot or character development when you can have some good old-fashioned gratuitous nudity instead? Get More »
Hollywood can be a big, weird, lonely place. Sometimes, for better or worse, that's going to make you want to get with Cher. And as Woody Allen once said, in defending his controversial relationship with his adopted daughter, the heart wants what the heart wants.
It's not for us to judge.
Just kidding! Of course it is. Here are 10 of the most bizarre Hollywood couples ever, past and present. Get More »

Attending a 10 year high school reunion is a bit like a time warp. People are the same, but they're not. They look the same, but, then again, they totally don't.
With "10 Years" arriving in theaters this Friday and rocking a class list we really wish we were on — from Channing Tatum and Justin Long to Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Rosario Dawson — we thought it'd be fun to see what the actors were up to just a decade ago. Some of it might surprise you, and some of it you probably already know.
Before you flip through our pseudo-yearbook: If you're looking for a glimpse at what the actors looked like in high school, check out the official "10 Years" Tumblr (but we promise this is no less humorous). And, lastly, you won't find Aubrey Plaza, one of the other awesome stars in this movie, in this gallery. We simply couldn't find any photos of her that pre-dated 2006, but it wasn't for lack of love or effort.
Channing Tatum must be some kind of time traveler, because he seems to put out more hot movies than the rest of Hollywood combined. This year alone he's already headlined three of Hollywood's biggest surprise hits, "The Vow," "21 Jump Street" and "Magic Mike." So he's probably ready for a well earned vacation, right?
Nah, of course not. Instead, he's got a brand new trailer for yet another movie coming out this fall, "10 Years."
Because that's how long it would take a normal star to make this many big films. Get More »
There are a lot of ways to fight fires. For example, water is involved usually, although on some occasions, sand is substituted. When the fires really get out of control, though, the authorities have to go big scale, fighting fires with airplanes, helicopters and hastily constructed trenches.
But Josh Duhamel? That dude just straight up fights "Fire With Fire."
And we've got the new trailer to prove it. Get More »
In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
