Rosario Dawson is speaking out for the first time since finding her 26-year-old cousin dead inside her home.

During a recent interview with AOL’s BUILD to promote her work with The Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York, Dawson explained “even as I’m going through a really emotional and stressful time in my life, I was so grateful to get on the plane to come here today and be here with all of you and celebrate what we have to celebrate, because that’s super important,” she said. “And it’s too easy to kind of go down the wormhole—the rabbit hole—and think about the stuff that didn’t happen,”

She continued, “My cousin just died, Vaneza, and I’m coming up on the six-year anniversary of my grandmother’s passing. And from 75 to 26, you just don’t know when your time is. And I just don’t want to be in any kind of position where I’m looking back going, ‘I should’ve, could’ve, would’ve, didn’t, damn!'”

Earlier this month, Dawson walked downstairs in her Venice, California, pad to find Vaneza Ines Vazquez unresponsive. Vasquez was taken to  St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica where she was pronounced dead. It was later confirmed that the death was due to natural causes.

Dawson shared during her chat with AOL that she’s “been dealing with a lot of loss lately and reconnecting with my family and my friends in a different way. I’m realizing how much I’ve pulled myself back, and I’ve been just really humbled by this opportunity tonight.”

She continued, “They’re giving me an award and it’s recognizing all of the achievements and things I’ve done with the organization, which is amazing. And I’m humbled by those achievements, but I’m also really humbled by my failures.”

Rosario’s loss comes on the heels of the release of her latest film, Unforgettable.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
