Netflix/Cory Booker



Yes, "Luke Cage" star Rosario Dawson is dating New Jersey Senator Cory Booker.

At the Reagan National Airport in D.C. Thursday, the actress and activist confirmed to TMZ that she is dating the Democratic presidential hopeful.

Dawson, whose films include "Rent," "Men in Black II," "25th Hour," and "He Got Game," said, "I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much."

She was wearing a Cory Booker campaign button, naturally.

Last month on the syndicated radio show The Breakfast Club, Booker mentioned he was dating someone "very special," adding, "I got a boo."

While it's too early to call either their relationship or the election, about half the internet is already anticipating First Lady Rosario Dawson.

Dawson's political activism includes founding Vote Latino, which aims to get young Latinos registered and to the polls on election day.  "Voting is the umbrella to everything else that I’m doing,"  she told Shape magazine. "Women’s issues, health and disease, poverty, housing — these all fall under that voting power.”

She previously dated comedian Eric André.
