Actress Rosario Dawson was on pop star Prince's rider request form when he made a rare TV appearance on late night chat show 'Lopez Tonight' on Wednesday, April 13.
Rosario Dawson made a handful of simple requests - like water and organic tortilla chips - but he also asked for the "Sin City" star to be a guest on the show as well.
The flattered actress says, "It's exactly (like) the first time I met Prince when I was 19, he requested me to be on his '1999' remix album. Imagine that phone call."
"He called me and said, 'I've written this monologue and I think it's really important and I'm very excited about doing this remix album for this song - for '1999' - and I think that you're the voice of a generation and you need to say it. I was like, 'I am? Oh my God.' "
The two became friends and Rosario Dawson admits she's always inspired by the "Purple Rain" hitmaker: "All the moments and the years that we've known each other that he's shown up my life have been so great."
