Rosario Dawson Reveals 'I Love Men,' But 'I Was a Virgin Until I Was 20!'

Rosario Dawson shows a ton of leg on the cover of Cosmopolitan for Latinas‘ Fall 2014 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On what she looks for in relationships: “I’m a touch person, I love intimacy…I love men! I love romance. I would love to fall deeply in love with someone, but at the same time it’s not my everything.”

On the most romantic thing a man can do: “For me, it’s about forethought. For my 25th birthday, my then-boyfriend prepared a beautiful bath for me. He put flowers and a bunch of little candles everywhere. He was crazy busy, and he knew I loved a great bath! I remember it was so small but it was so special to me because he thought it through.”

On her teenage years: “I was an awkward teenager. I went stag to my prom. I was a virgin until I was 20 years old! My mother was raising five kids on her own, I wasn’t just going to sit back and be a horny teenager and continue some cycle of teenage pregnancy—I wanted more opportunities.”

    what is with the “but”? why does it matter when she lost her virginity for her to love men?

  • sx

    that pregnancy bit is way off!!

  • Ha

    lol I love how she says she’s a “touch person” xD , this says it all! She’s SO beautiful<3

  • Molly H.

    I don’t see why losing her virginity at 20 is so shocking and it’s sad that you do.

    I think she is awesome. And I am happy she is honest about it, that shows is ok to wait to have sex, for personal reasons. Is not always about religion, what if u just wanna wait until you feel ready?! And comfortable in your own skin?

    A lot girls start having sex very young because their boyfriend wants to, they are stupid. People that wait until there 20s prove to have a better sex life, because they already know there body and what they want and with who.

    I don’t know why I waited, but I did, my mom had me when she was very young. Sex is awesome. But they are things that are more important.

    Why does it have to be a big deal that she was a virgin till she was 20? Why does she have to say that like it’s a bad thing? I’m almost 23 and I’m still HAPPILY a virgin. I hate when people make being a virgin a bad or embarrassing thing. Like if you’re “older” and haven’t had sex, then there’s something wrong with you. I love her. But I hate that comment.

  • Jim

    Maybe she was thinking about the convent.

  • Whatever

    @flm: Exactly! Applause for that comment! Just because you choose to wait doesn’t mean you love men any less than a person who lost their virginity at 14! Ugh the world we live in.

  • Whatever

    @Stephanie: I know, it’s sad that this is such a big deal.
