Rosario Dawson calls comedians "dark, negative people"

Actress criticises humorists' bleak outlook

 

Rosario Dawson, leading actress in new talking animal comedy Zookeeper, has said that comedians “tend to be pretty dark.”

Of her current co-star, Kevin James, Dawson was happy to compliment calling him “sweet” and “loving”.

But on the rest of the funny men and women she's worked with, Dawson remarked, “I've spent a lot of time with comedians over the years and I love some comedians, but they can tend to be pretty dark, negative people.”

Having appeared in several comedies before (including Clerks 2 and God awful sci-fi flop, Pluto Nash) it begs the question, which comics are the ‘moody’ type she’s on about?

Still, at least her experiences on Zookeeper seem to have done wonders for her own ego.

“I’ve got a pretty big head now,” she chuckled. “I feel like I could do comedies all the time.” 

Zookeeper will be in released on July 29th 2011.

What do you reckon, do comedians need to cheer up and look on the bright side? Tell us what you think.
