Rosario Dawson confirms romance with presidential hopeful Cory Booker as she arrives in Washington DC
The 39-year-old actress made the admission on Thursday as she touched down at Reagan National Airport in Virginia, to spend some time with her beau in Washington D.C
After months of speculation, Rosario Dawson has finally put all our minds to ease and confirmed her romance with Democratic hopeful Cory Booker. The 39-year-old actress made the admission on Thursday as she touched down at Reagan National Airport in Virginia, to spend some time with her beau in Washington D.C.
When asked if the pair were in a relationship, she answered, "Yes very much so," adding, "He's a wonderful human being. It's good to spend some time together when we can." She went on to gush over the 49-year-old, calling him a 'kind', 'loving' and 'caring' person, as per Daily Mail.
However, the actress gave no further indication if the pair would get married anytime soon. She said, "I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving."
The 'Sin City' actress further admitted that she believes her boyfriend's 2020 campaign will be successful. It was last month that Booker, when asked about his relationship status during a radio interview, played all coy, as he was answering questions about his recently launched presidential campaign.
"I got a boo," he said, adding he was dating "somebody that's really special", to the point where he was quite adamant that the woman in his life would make a great first lady. He repeated the same tactic in February when he made an appearance on BuzzFeed News' AM to DM.
The Democrat was asked what activities he and the 'Jane The Virgin' star enjoyed doing together, but he refused to fall for the bait. "Wow, that is a set up if I've ever heard one," Booker said seeming determined to brush off the attention.
The politician still didn't name the actress but said he enjoys eating good food and seeing a good movie whenever he gets the chance to go out. This might just be a match made in heaven for the couple, who have reportedly never been married before, although Dawson has a daughter, Lola, whom she adopted at the age of 11.
As of now, Booker is all set to go up against bigwigs like Beto O'Rourke, Bernie Sanders (who Dawson has campaigned for in the past), Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris in the 2020 presidential primaries.
