Rosario Dawson spilled something a bit personal to Us Weekly: When she lost her virginity. While discussing her first ever movie role in the 1995 film Kids, in which New York teenagers are having unprotected sex, she admitted she couldn’t fully relate at the time.

“I didn’t even have sex until I was 20,” she said. “My mom was a teenage mom, I was deathly afraid of being a teenage mom.”

But her parents didn’t flinch an eye with all the sex scenes in the film. “With all the insanity that my character goes through, the only thing they cared about was not smoking,” she joked.
