Rosario Dawson tends to take on dramatic roles, but the actress got to get a bit silly in "Zookeeper" and told OnTheRedCarpet.com that her grandmother had something in common with her monkey co-star.
"I did not get hit by a monkey on set, but a lot of people did get hit by a monkey on set, including my grandmother, which was pretty funny," Dawson told OnTheRedCarpet.com co-host Chris Balish at the film's premiere on Jul 6. "I have the best picture of her with Crystal the Monkey, sitting on her and smiling really hard and my grandmother doing the exact same smile, which is wonderful. I really loved that. It actually reminded me of my grandmother because she was super sweet and really, really cute but packed a wallop on her, man. You would never expect it!"
Cher praises Christina Aguilera's acting skills in their new musical film "Burlesque", which sees the "Genie in a Bottle" singer making her on-screen debut as a small-town girl who moves to Los Angeles and begins working in a club as a waitress, aiming to one day perform on stage.

Aguilera plays Ali, a small-town girl who moves to Los Angeles and begins working at the club as a cocktail waitress, aiming to one day perform on stage.

Aguilera, 29, also plans to sing and perform routines inspired from the film at the 2010 American Music Awards and did not confirm or deny whether Cher, 64, would join her on stage.
