ALEXANDER star Rosario Dawson once worked as an assistant waitress at a New York City restaurant - when she was just six years old.

The 26-year-old beauty, girlfriend of former SEX AND THE CITY star JASON LEWIS, has no fear of hard work as an adult because she started from such a young age.

Her mother ISABEL says, "Since she was a little girl, Rosario has always been very organised and personable.

"When she was six years old, I was the manager of a restaurant in New York and Rosario was my assistant waitress. She was wonderful! She would empty out the dishwasher, clean the menus and give the regular clients their water and utensils. She even had a little apron."
