Rosario Dawson.s .freaky. Beginnings
The sultry 25TH HOUR beauty was just 15 when she took a starring role in
Clark's 1995 controversial movie Kids, and she was unnerved by the unorthodox
way in which she was spotted while hanging out in New York.
She says, "Harmony Korine and Larry Clark came walking down the street
scouting locations for their movie, Kids. They spotted me, ran over and Harmony
began talking a mile a minute.
"'This character I wrote,' he said. 'You're the one I saw in my head! You
have to be in the movie!' And Larry is being so superfly cool, going, 'Yeah,
we're filmmakers, we're making a movie.' And I'm like, 'Yeah, right, who are
these freaks?' I
thought for sure they were scamming me.
"But a few weeks later...poof! At 15, I was suddenly an actress."
