London, Mar 04 (ANI): Hollywood actress Rosario Dawson has revealed that her mother used to lick her whenever she misbehaved as a kid.
The 'Kids' actress said that her mum Isabel licked the sides of her face in a bid to punish her, which actually worked.
"My mom licked me - that was her punishment. If I was a little uppity or if I didn't listen or if she wanted to get my attention, she'd lick the side of my face or under my armpit," the Daily Express quoted her as telling the New York Times.
"My mom's a six-foot-tall Amazon and she'd say, 'You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you,' and she'd lick me like I was her wee pup and she was a lioness. It was humiliating and really intense. Very primal. It's not spanking, but it definitely works," she added.
Meanwhile, Dawson was also in news for revealing that she feared that her role as a dying woman in her new flick 'Seven Pounds' might upset her mother. (ANI)
