Stars Discovered by Chance

10 of 18

Rosario Dawson

Dawson could hardly have been more passive in her rise to stardom. The New York native, who grew up poor and lived like a vagabond throughout much of her young adult life, was sitting on the stoop of the apartment building she was squatting in when a young photographer and a screenwriter approached her about starring in their new project. Dawson agreed, because, why not? The movie, "Kids," introduced her to audiences around the globe.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
