Rosario Dawson Confirms She’s Dating Presidential Contender Cory Booker: ‘So Far, So Wonderful’
Thursday, 14 March 2019 The worlds of Hollywood and politics are once again colliding, this time in the form of what Rosario Dawson calls a “loving” relationship with presidential-hopeful Sen. Cory Booker.
The “Rent” actress confirmed to TMZ Thursday in Washington, D.C. that she and Booker are “very much” dating and in love.
“So far, so wonderful,” she said, describing Booker as “brilliant and kind and caring and loving.”

“I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much,” Dawson said.
The New Jersey Democrat announced Feb. 1 his plans to run in the 2020 presidential campaign against President Trump, joining candidates who include Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, former Obama cabinet member Julián Castro, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, and Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who announced his candidacy Thursday.
Dawson’s comments on her relationship with Booker — which were in response to questions from a TMZ interviewer as she walked through an airport — provided some distraction from the focus on O’Rourke’s announcement.
In 2016, she supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, whose is also running in 2020.
Booker teased the pair’s relationship last month on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” saying that he was seeing someone “really special” without name-dropping Dawson.
TMZ’s video shows Dawson showing off one of Booker’s campaign buttons. When asked if she thought he’d make a good president, she said, “I think so, yeah. He’s an amazing human being.”
