Dawson Worried New Film May Upset Mum
Actress ROSARIO DAWSON fears her mother will be upset by her new film role as a dying woman.
The sexy star plays a character on the brink of death in Will Smith's new film Seven Pounds - and she fears the portrayal will strike a little too close to home for her mum, who has suffered from chronic asthma and diabetes for years.
Dawson says, "My mom's health is something that I'm concerned with all the time and that makes me worry because I have zero control in that.
"I know this is going to be a very difficult movie for her to see and I was really thoughtful thinking of her while I was doing this."
The film has made Dawson thankful that she has been blessed with good health.
She tells WENN, "I've always been aware of my health. At the moment I'm very healthy and it's not something I think about as strongly. I don't really have any terrible habits; I'm not a smoker or anything like that. It would be a shock to find out my health is any dire straits."
