Rosario Dawson, the actress and political activist, has confirmed that she is dating presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

When asked about her relationship, the actress told TMZ, “so far, so wonderful.” Though they are “very busy,” she said they try to see each other whenever they can.

Booker himself has hinted at a relationship but kept Dawson’s name private. Last month in an interview with the radio show The Breakfast Club, he told listeners he’s “got a boo” and she’s “very special,” but did not elaborate on the subject.


If Booker is elected, he would only be the third bachelor candidate in presidential history to serve in the White House, after James Buchanan and Glover Cleveland.

When asked if Dawson thought he would be a good president, she responded saying, “he’s an amazing human being.”

Booker said he believed the woman he was dating would make a good first lady. Dawson answered the marriage question saying she had “no idea.” “I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much,” she said.

Dawson, 39, has starred in films such as Men in Black II and Rent. She is very vocal on Twitter about her beliefs. In addition to her acting career, she cofounded Voto Latino, that’s not party affiliated, and encourages young Latinos to register to vote.

Dawson endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein when Sanders didn’t receive the nomination.
