Actress Rosario Dawson stepped up to the bully pulpit Thursday to tell the world she and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) are in a relationship. He became the second African-American to enter the 2020 presidential race, after fellow Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California.
"He's a wonderful human being". "He's a wonderful human being and it's good to spend some time together when we can".
Dawson, who is a celebrity political activist, also showed off a Cory Booker campaign badge pinned to her handbag as she walked through the airport, telling TMZ she feels sure her boyfriend would make a great President.
"Yeah", she answered while huffing through the terminal in a black beanie. "We're very busy", she said.
Then: Are the rumors true?
In January 2018, while appearing on the Morado podcast, Dawson revealed she was raped and molested as a child, and hinted that her abuser was a member of her family. Dawson, 39, and Booker, 49, were spotted together taking in the Broadway play "Dear Evan Hansen" with Dawson's daughter and Booker's niece. And speculation only increased after Booker made an appearance on "The Breakfast Club" and confirmed that he had a "boo". If Dawson and Booker do end up getting married, Rosario Dawson has a chance at being the next First Lady of the United States. Turns out it was Dawson all along.
Almost all presidents elected are married.
"I know I'm being a nerd right now but Senator Cory Booker and Rosario Dawson saw the show tonight while I was on and I had to leave the room because I got too star struck and started crying...."
"I have no idea", she replied with a laugh, adding, "I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much".
