Dawson allergy troubles!

London: Actress Rosario Dawson was well medicated on the set of her new movie "The Zookeeper" because she is severely allergic to animals.

The "Sin City" star plays a zoologist in the comedy but she wasn`t laughing when she realised she`d be sharing the screen with so many creatures, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"I`m super-allergic to animals, so I was really medicated while making this movie. I had to take nose spray, eye drops, face cream and pills, because I get hives and get super itchy," she said.
