Rosario Dawson Felt Insecure Being Naked

Rosario Dawson on the poster for 'Trance'Rosario Dawson found it difficult walking around completely naked for her new movie.

The 33-year-old Trance star - who recently split from the movie's director Danny Boyle - has admitted she felt "insecure" walking around with nothing on and her co-stars including James McAvoy made the experience "more awkward" by refusing to look at her.

Speaking at the world premiere of the movie at the Odeon West End in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz:

"The hardest and scariest part about it was walking. I was trying to figure out, like, how do you walk in front of everyone when you're naked? I don't think you really plan to do that really well. It's actually interesting because everyone's trying to be really respectful and polite and not look at you, but that almost makes it a little bit more awkward because you know you're performing to a certain extent. Like, I'm standing there and I'm walking across the room and I'm like, 'Am I walking too slow? Should I move my hip a little bit more?' You really get self conscious about the stupidest things. It was really funny because I'm looking over at James and James is not looking at me at all. He's looking at my shoulder; he's looking at some spot on the wall. It's sort of just like, OK, just be in the moment, be in the character."

VIDEO: Watch the Trailer for Danny Boyle’s Latest Film ‘Trance’

Director Danny Boyle's follow-up to his Oscar-nominated 127 Hours, Trance, features his real-life partner Rosario Dawson as a hypnotherapist hired by criminals to uncover the location of a priceless painting.

The thriller - which also stars James McAvoy and Vincent Cassel - appears to be more fast-paced than the James Franco drama and perhaps close to the level of trippiness (at one point in the trailer, Cassel speaks to McAvoy despite half his face and brain missing) that most recall from Boyle's cult classic Trainspotting.

The film hits limited theaters on April 5.

Box Office Breakdown: Dawn Treader Sails Past Depp, Jolie

Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader sailed to a first place finish this weekend despite a lackluster start. The latest C.S. Lewis adaptation – which was produced for an estimated $145 million – earned only $24 million in domestic sales. That figure is $31 million less than Prince Caspian’s debut and approximately $41 million below The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’s premiere.

Landing into second place was The Tourist, which rang in a disappointing $16.5 million. Although the film boasted two big A-list stars (Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie), the thriller turned in Depp’s smallest open for a wide release since 1999’s The Astronaut’s Wife.

Box Office Breakdown: Tangled Climbs Above Potter

Tangled duo

You can’t keep a good woman with long locks down.

Despite initially debuting in second place, Tangled reached new heights this week. The Disney feature climbed out of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow’s shadow to take the box office crown.

Tangled is now the second film this year to move up the ladder to the #1 spot. Another animated featured, How to Train Your Dragon, was the first.

The chart’s only new wide release, The Warrior’s Way, will likely fall out of the Top Ten by Week 2. The actioner starring Jang Dong-gun, Kate Bosworth and Geoffrey Rush started its run in ninth place.

Box Office Breakdown: Deathly Hallows Avoids Getting Tangled

Tangled

Tangled's tresses weren't quite long enough to get past the Deathly Hallows last weekend.

Despite a $48.8 million debut ($68.7 million since Wednesday), Disney's latest animated feature found itself in a tight race. The film starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi landed firmly into second place -- approximately $300,000 shy of two-time winner Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Burlesque, featuring Christina Aguilera and Cher, rang up $11.9 million in ticket sales and a fourth-place finish. Although that figure isn't exactly something to brag about, it does represent Cher's biggest opening to date.

Promises of nudity couldn't get Love and Other Drugs into the Top 5. The Anne Hathaway/Jake Gyllenhaal movie earned less than $10 million and a sixth place debut. Meanwhile, Faster -- starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton -- grossed $8.5 million for seventh place.

Rosario Dawson Wants Sin City Sequel Soon

Rosario Dawson in Sin CitySin City actress Rosario Dawson said that she needs the sequel to happen soon if she’s going to fit into the barely-there outfits.

The 31-year-old actress - who played prostitute dominatrix Gail in the first movie adaptation of the graphic novel - explained while she is keen to work on a sequel, director Robert Rodriguez needs to start filming soon or she will feel too old for the skimpy costumes associated with the character.

“The last time I saw Robert Rodriguez was a month ago and he really wants to make Sin City 2 happen. I said, ‘I understand you’ve been taking your time, but if you want me to wear the outfit that fits into one hand, dude. I’m not getting any younger.’”

The star also admitted she is grateful for her unusual looks - which are a combination of her Puerto Rican, Afro-Cuban, Native American and Irish descent - as some of her more conventional-looking friends struggle to find acting work: “I have friends of mine who are actresses, who all have blonde hair and blue eyes, tell me they think I am going to work more than them. One of my friends in particular - and she’s a pretty big actress - said, ‘There are a million girls who show up who look just like me every single day in Los Angeles fighting for the exact same job.’”
