Rosario Dawson Talks Starting a Family in 'Ocean Drive' Magazine!

Rosario Dawson is stunning in a white dress on the cover of Ocean Drive‘s April 2014 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 34-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On whether she would ever start her own family: “I have always had a very strong mothering instinct. My first job ever was babysitting and tutoring. I would even tutor and babysit my peers’ younger siblings! Today, I work with a lot of different organizations and public schools, and I have a family that I sponsor in Sierra Leone that I love, and my godchildren. That mothering part of me has just always been in action. I wouldn’t be surprised to have it evolve and transform.”

On the key messages she would want to get across if she were profiling herself: “I’m very human. The more I see my flaws, I see them with perspective. I’m a very optimistic and passionate person. I love that I’m still in awe of so many things. I love learning and challenging myself and trying things, and I’m not afraid to be weird or silly or outrageous at all. I can be really shy, which I know can be surprising, but I do like to deliberate on things and take my time and figure stuff out. I feel really grateful that I grew up with people who were really human, too. I’m not a perfect human being, but I think that’s what makes me perfect. We’re all perfectly imperfect.”

On being a working actress for the past 20 years: “I’m proud I’m still doing it. I’m proud that I’m still feeling challenged, that I’m still working on things that scare me a bit or inspire me, and that I still get to do what I love. As a woman in her 30s, I know I’m supposed to feel like I’m about to have a nail put in my coffin or something. But I don’t. Actors I’ve always admired have acted until pretty much the end. I work a lot more now than I used to when I was really young. I was scared throughout almost my entire career that I wouldn’t have one, and then 20 years later, I’ve done over 50 films, so I’ve stopped worrying about that.”
