Movie star Rosario Dawson had a little extra help renovating her East Village, New York, studio after a fire in the apartment above wrecked her home - her mum called in her favourite TV home makeover team.

Dawson's mother ISABEL is such a fan of hit US show EXTREME MAKEOVER, she wrote to host Ty Pennington and asked him and his team of designers and builders to turn her daughter's place into a dream home.

They agreed it was a good idea and turned the renovation into a special piece for their TV show - they even got posters of Dawson's new film Sin City signed by her castmates to put up above her bed.
