August 2011 SHAPE cover model Rosario Dawson stopped by Live with Kelly & Michael yesterday to promote her new project Trance, a British drama that had SXSW captivated in anticipation after the premier of its extended trailer.
After engaging in all the Hollywood banalities, Dawson, 34, responded to Kelly Ripa’s complement about her figure in the Jill Stuart dress she wore by stating that she doesn’t workout in order to keep her slender and toned figure.
As the growing trend of celebrities gainfully using the positive press from pictures showing them exercising and eating healthy, believing in eschewing cabs and other forms of public transit, Rosario says that her exercise comes from walking the streets of New York City.
The actress stated in SHAPE that her mother was health conscious and made sure that Rosario and her siblings were exposed to many alternative ways of eating and living:
“My mom was practicing vegan and raw diets years ago, so I understood eating healthy at a young age. We even belonged to the local co-op. I mean, we had Spam too, because we were poor and had to take whatever we could get, but we stopped eating white bread when I was 6.”
Rosario’s film Trance opens in America this Friday, 4/5.
