Rosario Dawson Refuses to Be Brandon T. Jackson's Mentor

February 3, 2010 (8:20 am) GMT
Rosario Dawson, who shares screen with Brandon T. Jackson in 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief', declines her co-star's request to be his mentor because she doesn't want to feel old.

refused to mentor younger actor when he turned to her for career advice in Hollywood - because his plea for wisdom made her feel old. The pair co-star in new adventure fantasy film "", and Jackson looked to his female lead for movie guidance.

But 30-year-old Dawson shunned his attempts to become her protege and forced the 24 year old to settle for friendship. She explains, "I never felt older on a movie before this one... Brandon (asked me), 'Would you be my mentor?' And I think I sprouted a gray hair when he said that."

"I was like, 'Dude! I'm five years older than you! I will be your friend and give you good information but I'm not going to be your mentor.' I got an ache in my back as soon as he said it."
