"I'm completely shallow," actress Rosario Dawson admits to iVillage exclusively about how she first met her "beautiful" boyfriend of three years, French deejay Mathieu Schreyer. "I just saw him at a table across from me at a restaurant. I was really upset because it looked like he was looking at my uncle and not me." But when Dawson approached her now-beau to ask who he was looking at and he responded, "Well, actually, I'm looking at the both of you" in his French accent, the actress was "hooked."
And while it may seem gutsy to approach a random man at a restaurant, she's always been a risk-taker. Her new role in the runaway-train action-thriller Unstoppable pairs her with Denzel Washington, but the two didn't actually shot their scenes together. "I do know Denzel and it really helped and informs those moments when I'm talking to white Denzel, who was his off-camera guy, who sounds exactly like him, but clearly doesn’t look like him!" she admits.
Watch our exclusive video (above) to find out why Dawson says she can be like a guy (hint: it involves crepes!) and her trick to surviving scary transportation scenarios.
