Cory Booker sent songs every morning to Rosario Dawson when they were apart

Rosario Dawson, Cory Booker attendstthe premiere of "Zombieland: Double Tap" in Los Angeles
I stopped watching The Mandalorian a couple episodes into season two so I didn’t realize Rosario Dawson is in it! She’s also promoting a talent show she’s judging on TBS called Go Big Show. Snoop Dogg is a judge too. It’s held in a huge auditorium, which is how they get around pandemic restrictions I guess. Rosario had an interview with Jimmy Fallon last week. She first talked to him on her own, then her boyfriend, NJ Senator Cory Booker, came on. They did a “Newlyweds” type game where Jimmy asked Rosario and Cory questions about each other while the other one was wearing headphones. I liked it more than I expected and wanted to talk about them.

These two moved in together after a couple years of dating, but they aren’t engaged that we know about. They’re super cute together and you can tell that they’re really into each other. They got most of the questions right about each other too! My favorite part was when Rosario said that Cory used to send her songs to listen to for almost a year when they first started dating. Now they have a love playlist!

Joe Biden talked up Cory Booker to her
Rosario: We met [Joe Biden] at the same time going into one of the debates. They were in competition with each other at that time. [Joe] walks over and pulls me aside to say the most wonderful things about Cory. He was very charming ‘I’m married up. I hope the same for him.’ Very sweet. It said a lot about him.

Cory’s weirdest habit
Rosario: He just started doing Wim Hof method so he’s been doing these cold showers.
Cory confirms: Most morning [I] will take contrast showers where you stand under ice cold water. It has a lot of health benefits.

Cory’s “smoothest move when they first started dating”
Rosario: For an entire year, when we were apart a lot, he would wake me up every day with a song. He would send me a song. We have this playlist, it’s almost 200 songs. It would initiate conversation every morning. We would talk about the song and what it meant to either of us and if it was a new song. It was wonderful and now we have a love playlist.
Cory confirms: I’m not the smoothest soul. She probably said I’m not smooth [she did]. I think I do things that are sweet at least. [Jimmy told him it was the love playlist].

We just talked about cold showers in Oya’s post about Hunter Schafer from Euphoria doing this. One of my friends goes swimming outside in Switzerland nearly every morning in the freezing cold! She says it’s addictive and that she does just kind of ease into the cold water, she doesn’t jump right in. As I said on the podcast this week, I don’t even like walking outside when it’s under 60 so I know this isn’t for me. I used to rinse my hair in cold water because that’s supposed to make it shiny but I know I don’t want to put my whole body under that.

How romantic is a “love playlist?” That’s like a mix tape except using current technology to share it over the internet. I miss mix tapes! I had a boyfriend in the late 90s who used to make me mix CDs and I still have some of them. I actually just Zoomed with him a couple of months ago, he was a decent boyfriend and kind of nerdy sweet like Cory Booker. I think Rosario Dawson is a bit odd and I’ve never quite warmed up to her, but I like her with Cory and want them to last! Any couple Joe Biden roots for is A-OK in my book.

They are so cute and matchy! This caption!

    I didn’t know he was dating Ashoka Tano! Lol. They’re cute together and that’s sweet what Joe said to her.

  2. Lizzythe2 says:

    I saw this on Fallon and it was really cute. Cory is sweet.

  3. Darla says:

    Funny she likes Uncle Joe but she had big problems with Hillary Clinton, and no I’m not forgetting.

    • LightPurple says:

      She had problems with Biden early on too. She’s a Bernie Bro.

      But yes, her “problems” with Hillary Clinton were unforgettable.

    • sa says:

      I’m not forgetting either. I like Cory Booker so much, that I almost want to like her more than I do, but she literally protested the 2016 democratic convention and I just can’t.

  4. Argus says:

    I love Rosario as Ahsoka Tano, she brings so much gravitas to the role. I couldn’t take my eyes off her for a second in her episode. Can’t wait for the spin off.

  5. Phyllis says:

    They seem really sweet together! I really enjoyed Rosario in Briarpatch….it’s campy (?) and quirky, but dark and her clothes in the series are gorgeous!

  6. TheOriginalMia says:

    That lady is dressed like Baby Yoda.

    Cory & Rosario are cute together. I’ll admit to being suspect of her motives when they first got together. Thought she was going to sabotage his candidacy, but…she really seems into him. She’s supportive of him and vice versa. I haven’t forgotten the fuckery from her and others during Hillary’s run, but she comes off much better than other Bernie acolytes.

  7. Mindy_Dopple says:

    I’ve always like Rosario! Mostly because she had brown skin like me and a Spanish name so I assumed she was something Latina or other and I loved it. She was great in Jane The Virgin and a bunch of earlier stuff. Good for them!

  8. Mia4s says:

    She was very good in the Mandalorian! Some great fighting too.

    And yeah that Biden comment is really cute!

    Not to get judgmental, but as someone who is always (ALWAYS) cold? The cold showers/swimming thing is completely crazy!!!! Not to judge though. 😜

  9. Genevieve says:

    Listen, I know a lot of people in his political circle. I don’t want to out anyone who isn’t ready but the fact that he and his campaign are lying to us with these cloying and fake stories is very manipulative. The stories would be less insulting if they weren’t lies.

    • Truthiness says:

      I hope that with the prominence of politicians like Mayor Pete and Liz Cheney we can make fauxmances unnecessary. Wait, who am I kidding, we just had Trump and his “wife.” In this case, was it Rosario who wanted the PR and she was owed the favor from last year?

    • Oh-Dear says:

      I think you can have love without it being sexual. Maybe theirs is a deep friendship and enjoyment of each other that isn’t traditional and maybe isn’t exclusive.
