  • Cory Booker Taylor Trensch and Rosario Dawson

Rosario Dawson found love on Capitol Hill.

Dawson, 39, went public about her relationship with the New Jersey Democrat in an on-camera interview with the celebrity news website TMZ.com as she was strolling through Reagan National Airport near Washington. Asked whether Booker would make a good president (he announced he was running in early February), she replied with a wry smile, "I think so, yeah, he's an wonderful human being".

The worlds of Hollywood and politics are once again colliding, this time in the form of what Rosario Dawson calls a "loving" relationship with presidential-hopeful Sen.

But first, a softball question: Dawson, who starred in Netflix's "Luke Cage" series, was asked if she thought Booker would make a good president.

The comments came after Page Six reported Booker's link to Dawson.

Rosario added, "He's a wonderful human being and it's good to spend some time together when we can".


Dawson is no stranger to political activism, having regularly spoken out about issues near and dear to her on Capitol Hill and co-founding Vote Latino.

The New Jersey Democrat announced February 1 his plans to run in the 2020 presidential campaign against President Trump, joining candidates who include Sens.

In 2016, Dawson had been a fervent supporter of U.S. Sen. Days later, he told "The Breakfast Club" host Charlamagne tha God that he has "a boo".

As we wrote last month, the former mayor of Newark, New Jersey announced his presidential bid on the first day of Black History Month.

"I'm dating someone that's really special", he said on the radio show on New York City's Power 105.1 FM.
