Raised in an abandoned building in Manhattan, Rosario grew up with aspirations of becoming a marine biologist. Then, while hanging out on a stoop, she was asked by filmmaker Larry Clark to appear in his controversial movie, Kids. After garnering positive reviews for her portrayal of Ruby, Rosario switched her focus to acting (sorry, dolphins), and in the next few years she appeared in a steady stream of films.
A word from Rosario: “People in Hollywood don’t have that much sex. Or at least I don’t.”
