Most of my Hot or Not columns are straight-forward in their obvious hot or not-ness. I think that's why I've never approached this week's candidate before. She's considered one of the greatest in the babe department, legacy status fully confirmed. Still, there are times when I hear the nagging voices of the dissenters complain that she's not all that. With SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR coming out this weekend, it's a good time for me to offer myself up for the "What kind of question is this?" complaints.
Dawson didn't have the most prosperous of hottie fodder beginnings, if you really examine her resume. Sure, she started off in KIDS, one of those movies that either ignites or demolishes a young actor's career, but it wasn't as if she was supposed to be considered a sex symbol in that, even if she's talking about sex. Unless you're a guilty-pleasure JOSIE & THE PUSSYCATS fan, it took nearly ten years before Rosario really got the chance to show off her hottie assets (watch ALEXANDER, the first SIN CITY and CLERKS II for the trifecta of Rosie awesomeness).
Some people complain that over the years she's gotten too soft. Some people laud that same softness as being true womanliness. Rosario has never been stick skinny and I doubt she'd look as good as she does if she followed the maniacal Hollywood regimen of starvation and excessive exercise. I like that her natural body structure isn't bony or overly lithe. She's the kinda babe you wanna hug a full body impression into.
So, yes, I personally think that Rosario Dawson is the pinnacle of gorgeous sexiness. It goes beyond being just hot. She's scorching. But I needed a victim and I wanted to see if there were any brave people willing to be all contentious.
What do you think of Rosario Dawson?
