Rosario Dawson Cutting Back On Family Time Over Holidays for Twilight Book Series

Rosario Dawson, working the press junket for her new film Seven Pounds coming out on Friday, told reporters that she recently picked up the Twilight book series and couldn't put it down. "It's like crack cocaine," Dawson told People, "I read it for 10 hours straight until I finished it," joked the actress.

Apparently, it is her father who is going to endure the brunt of the negative affects of her addiction.

"My dad is going to hate me, because I spend zero time with him,
reading these books,"she said, "I actually made a vow to myself not to buy the second, third and fourth book until Thursday, because that's when I'll be done with all this press, and I'll be able to read over Christmas vacation."

The starlet is set to appear in Parts Per Billion with Twilight's hottie leading man Robert Pattinson and we hope she remembers to separate fact from fiction! We don't think that will be too much of an issue though. When asked what she looks for in a man Dawson responded, "You don't want to fall in love with something that's not real." Her solution for fostering long-term relationships? "Be honest with each other."

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
