Rosario explained that she was shooting a very serious movie down there, so she liked to have fun and joke around while off set. She also took pictures on a mini golf course with dinosaurs.

Kelly pointed out that one of the biggest perks of being a movie star is getting to see so many different places. Rosario will soon head to Africa where she’ll be spending her birthday.

Rosario’s new film is Trance, directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle. She plays a hypnotherapist that helps James McAvoy’s character. James is a very talented actor currently starring in MacBeth.

Rosario learned that some people can never be hypnotized, while others are hypnotized very easily. During her own hypnotherapy session, Rosario revealed things she didn’t even realize she had said.
