That's right, the leather-bound badass we all know and love, Rosario Dawson turns 34-years-old today! Rosario has always been too cool for school. She gets significantly cooler when you consider how well she handles the paparazzi, the fact that she's a self-proclaimed comic book geek, and the role of "Miri" in ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO was originally written for her. I was there that day at Comic-Con when Kevin Smith was running an hour late for his "An Evening with…" panel, and Rosario filled the time by answering ridiculous questions from the audience (this was in Hall H, nonetheless). As an actress, she's adored by movie-fans for taking on some significant roles in films such as SIN CITY, CLERKS II and DEATH PROOF. Also, some of you remember seeing her for the first time 1995's KIDS, or for the slightly younger generation, as Valerie Brown in JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS. Sure, she's accidentally partaken in a stinker or two (PLUTO NASH, ZOOKEEPER), but she's made up for them by proving her worth in dramatic flicks like SEVEN POUNDS and A GUIDE TO RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS. She had a somewhat slow 2012, but with heavy buzz regarding the upcoming TRANCE, and SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR on its way, this looks to be a great year for our favorite fast-food clerk hottie. Happy birthday, Rosario!
