Dawson Upset She Missed Out On Neverland Tour
Rosario Dawson was so thrilled to discover she would be working near Michael Jackson's abandoned Neverland Ranch home while making new film Death Proof she tried to convince director Quentin Tarantino to organise a grand tour.
The gritty action film was shot in the countryside near Jackson's famous Santa Barbara, California estate and Dawson spent every day dreaming of the chance to check out the home, which the pop superstar hopes to sell.
She says, "I really wanted to go and I figured that, between (co-star) Kurt (Russell) and Quentin, they could try to pretend like someone had enough money to actually buy that place and it just never happened.
"I just wanted to go in and look inside... I was trying to figure out a way to get in there and it wasn't working.
"I had announced the Golden Globe nominees and it was, like, at 5.30 in the morning, so they had to bring me right back to work, and I was so upset because we didn't fly over (Neverland). I think there's, like, a no-fly zone over the place."
