Rosario Dawson has revealed she found co-star Kevin James a refreshing change from "negative" comedians she's worked with in the past.

The actress stars alongside Kevin in Zookeeper, a comedy about an unlucky in love animal caretaker.

Speaking at the film's Los Angeles premiere, Rosario explained: "I've spent a lot of time with comedians over the years and I love some comedians, but they can tend to be pretty dark, negative people."

In contrast, she described the Dilemma actor - who penned the script for Zookeeper and produced the movie, as well as taking the lead role - as "sweet" and "loving".

The 25th Hour star joked that she's developed a taste for the lighter side of film-making.

"I've got a big head now," she laughed. "I feel like I could do comedies all the time."
