Watch out for mama bear!
Rosario Dawson happily discussed her role in Chris Rock's Top Five on NBC's Today Wednesday, but when Matt Lauer inquired about her recent adoption, the new mom shut him down. "I very rarely talk about tabloid speculation and this is not an exception," she replied. "My family is incredibly private—most of us anyway. I don't think anyone's going to be writing a book anytime soon, just because we're too lazy." Lauer didn't mean to upset Dawson, telling her, "I ask it only because it's such a sweet story."
"Believe me, if anyone were to talk about this, including myself..." she said before speaking in Spanish. "We're going to keep...mum's the word. I'm really glad to be here talking about Top Five, so thank you."
On Tuesday, a source told E! News that the single actress was "over the moon" after adopting a 12-year-old daughter. "She has always wanted this," the source said of Dawson, who was adopted as an infant.
