Emmy Rossum never carries much of the green stuff inside her Tory Burch tote. “Right now, I have $3.70,” says the single L.A.-based actress. “My mom is always like, ‘You can’t walk around with no money!’ But even taxis take plastic now.”
What else does the Shameless star keep in there?
Her Bedhead Remedy
“I’m a huge New York Knicks fan and I usually carry a hat with me. If I’m having a horrible hair day, I throw it on.” (Continue Reading…)
Let’s be honest, we won’t take skincare tips from just anyone. But when we caught up with Emmy Rossum and got her to share some of her secrets to flawless skin, we made sure to take detailed notes.
As it turns out, Rossum is just like any normal gal—she uses Pinterest to plan her wardrobe, she splurges on shoes, she pops pimples (something she claims she’s good at) and, she too worries about clear skin. But as she told us, with a diligent routine and some secret weapons, flawless, amazing skin is not an impossible goal.
With a busy schedule on Shameless, it might be easy for Rossum to crash at the end of a long day. But she stressed the importance of washing her face each night and exfoliating with her Clarisonic. “I always wash and scrub!” she insisted. (Continue Reading…)
At the Origins event the other night, Huffington Post caught up with Emmy to ask her a few questions for their #nofilter segment – where celebrities give their quickest, most honest answers about some of their guilty pleasures. Check out Emmy’s full interview here!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
All food. Gluten-free and high in butter. Gluten-free whoopee pies are amazing. I just had my birthday so I feel terrible. I ate everything in sight for like a week!
What’s something from your childhood wardrobe that you wish you could wear today?
I actually still wear a skirt from when I was 12. It has just gotten really short on me. It’s like a tweed skirt.
What’s always in your refrigerator?
Muenster cheese. I’m a cheese person! (source)
ASHLEY BAYLEN (AB): 2013 looks like it’s going to be a huge year for you, starting with the newest season of Shameless, your new album, and Beautiful Creatures. Congrats! You are officially being called a “multi-hyphenate”. How does it feel?
EMMY ROSSUM (ER):Overwhelming and exciting. I try to keep my expectations in check and remain humble and grateful for all the opportunities. I love singing and acting equally, so getting to pursue both this year has been really fulfilling.
AB: I have to admit that Shameless is one of my favorite shows currently on TV, and I know I’m going to get criticized for saying this, but I actually prefer the US version to the original UK one, mostly due to the incredibly strong cast. Fiona is such a complex character. What did you do to prepare for this role initially?
ER: I tried to put myself in her shoes. I’m an only child but I have always wanted a big rowdy family so this was a dream come true. I tried to figure out who she was inside. A young woman who has had no role model, she is a sister, a daughter, and a mother figure.
AB: Do you feel that you have grown and evolved with Fiona over the seasons?
ER: I do. Characters always rub off on me. She has made me bolder and I think I’ve made her softer.
Emmy is featured on the cover of Mexico’s Cosmpolitan! I’ve added some scans to the gallery for you guys, and as an extra special treat, my lovely co-mod at our blog, EmmyFans, has translated the article from Spanish to English for everyone to enjoy! Super duper thanks to her, and if anyone uses this, please remember to credit back to the link it came from, since she worked hard on it.

From opera singer to actress in dramas, the multi-talented Emmy Rossum refuses to be pigeonholed. The star of Shamelss talked to us about bullying, diets and how she stays true to herself.
It’s testing day for the dress for the Met Costume Institute Gala in New York and Emmy Rossum is in good spirits. “I’m excited,” she says, while smiling and enjoying the sunny afternoon in Manhattan where she grew up. “We will try out different types of fabric for the dress, so it’ll be fun.” The actress and singer, who is her own stylist for red carpet events, says: “The theme is punk, so we can experiment a little.” It is the second time the 26 year old girl is attending this event. “It’s a chance to take your fashion a little further than normally.”
Although she’s now taking a break from the critically acclaimed television series shameless (the shooting of season four begins in September), in which she plays the rough Fiona, Rossum has been unstoppable in recent months. Her calendar includes the release of her second album sentimental journey, the premiere of the film beautiful creatures (2013), starring alongside Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson, and recently wrapped production of the drama you’re not you, with Hilary Swank and Josh Duhamel. It was shot in Los Angeles, where she lives. However, the beautiful Emmy frequently visits her native New York: “I go once a month to spend time with my family and friends, and also to work.” (CONTINUE READING…)
Also, filed under ‘something to look forward to’… The Met ball is just around the corner, and from the looks of Emmy’s tweet, she’ll be there!
Emmy’s keeping busy after her return from Mexico! Last night, she attended the Global Green USA’s 10th Anniversary Pre-Oscary party. Emmy wore a dusty pink Sophia Kokosalaki gown and paired it with Charlotte Olympia sandals, Tacori earrings and a Piaget ring. What do you think of her classic look?

Emmy is also featured on Interview Magazine’s website in an article by John Taylor. Check it out here and read an excerpt below.
JOHN TAYLOR: So, you have a new movie coming out, Beautiful Creatures…
EMMY ROSSUM: I do!
TAYLOR: Are you excited?
ROSSUM: I am. This is a script that I’ve really loved for a long time, and I kept hounding my agent to tell me when they were going to start auditioning people. When I finally got the call, I was excited—I was really excited about the character [Ridley Duchannes]. She’s kind of a scene-stealer in the book, and very self-indulgent. She’s a dark witch, or caster, and—very glamourous, very seducing, very self-centered. So, obnoxious and fun to play. I’ve never played a bad girl before, and she’s kind of deliciously evil.
First update of the day are some candids from Emmy’s visit to Live! With Kelly & Michael. I also have included some video from her appearance – if any in better quality turns up, I’ll be sure to share it with you guys!
Candids -> 2013 -> Live! With Kelly & Michael, February 11th
There are also two interesting reads to share with you guys. The first is from MovieFone, and the second from ScreenCrave. I’ve included snippets from both, read on!
The bulletin board you mentioned: Do you do that for every role?
Yeah. It looks like “Homeland.” It’s everything from images to quotes to ideas for scenes. It’s basically brain vomit.
What do you do with it when the movie is over?
It usually gets thrown away — and whatever’s left is on the screen.
I imagine some fans might like to get ahold of that.
Somebody would like it. A lot of it’s very personal ideas and sense memories of things that happened to me will get tacked next to that scene number. It wouldn’t necessarily mean anything to anyone else. (READ ON…)
Your character got more development in the movie, than in the book. She feels wounded about being rejected by her family. Did you and Richard work on that?
Emmy Rossum: Yeah. I think we tried to flesh her out a little bit. In the book, you get an understanding of her being chosen for the dark side and she has fully embraced being bad. But underneath all this sexy bravado, in your face, attention-seeking craziness and glam that she projects, she’s kind of like this bratty teenager. She’s grown up but she’s pushed out by her family and not sheparded through the adolescent period like the way they are taking care of Lena. Obviously, every actor thinks they’re in their own movie so I fleshed her out completely and lived that but it was really fun for me to play with the dynamic of a character that’s not completely evil but seems that way. (READ ON…)
A quick head’s up to let you guys know that Emmy will be appearing on Live! With Kelly & Michael tomorrow, February 11th. The program airs on ABC, check your local listings!
Also, check out an interesting article about Emmy from DailyMail. There are a lot of interesting tidbits that I think everyone will enjoy.
I’ll never lose my fear of failure.
I’ve always felt the need to work harder than anyone else. That way, if I do fail, at least I can console myself with the thought that I’ve done my best. That fear of failure never goes away. Whatever I do in life and however successful I get, there’s always an element of self-doubt about whether I can pull off the next job.
I turn into James Bond when the paparazzi are chasing me.
I’ve been chased by photographers on many occasions and I’ve come perilously close to crashing my car. Luckily I’m capable of turning into 007 behind the wheel when I’m especially eager to avoid them. When I’m in Bond mode, nobody is going to catch me. (READ ON…)
Emmy was seen heading out to The Tonight Show, and then out shopping at a boutique the next day. I’ve added the images to our gallery, check them out below!

The Wall Street Journal has published a pretty great article about Emmy that I think people will enjoy reading. Check it out and sound off in the comments.
How has the show changed the perception of you as an actor?
People who watch the show think you must be like that character. A lot of people probably think I’m a dirty ho, but I’m not. The show has done only great things for me and my career.
If the woman singing on your album was a character, how would you describe her?
I would call her Emmanuelle, which is my real name and what my mom called me as a kid. She’s a 1940s starlet trying to break through, with a heart of gold but a tough exterior. I made the record with my own money. I was just going to release it online, then I got all this interest from Warner Bros., so we released it together. It’s the best of both worlds. I made it with a bunch of my friends. We rehearsed it in a garage then went into a big fancy studio and recorded the whole thing in three days. (READ MORE)
Don’t forget to order your copy of Sentimental Journey! It will be released this week, and no one wants to miss out! E! has been streaming the album here if you are interested in giving it a listen. Emmy has also released another single to her youtube account. Give it a listen below!
I’ve added photos from her vignettes for Apple Blossom Time and Nobody Knows You to our gallery… be sure to check both of those out! Lastly (at least lastly about the album!) reviews are starting to surface for the album… and it sounds pretty good. Read on!
Like her 2007 album, Inside Out, Sentimental Journey was produced by Stuart Brawley. To capture an authentic early 20th century sound, it was recorded with a live band in just three days, using vintage mics and mastered to tape.
And, it works. You could actually almost mistake this album for one raided from your grandma’s collection of 78s and LPs; the production, arrangements and vocals are all very retro.
Unlike most current performers who cover American standards, Rossum delivers them not in a modern style, but rather much as they were first performed. Rossum brings graceful and nuanced voice to her personal, but still era-authentic interpretations of the songs, renewing them for a fresh listening experience. (source)
This track, “These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)” has been sung by Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, and the glorious Michael Bublé. She gives this a feminine, airy, and sultry spin that makes this a cover I will go back and listen to time after time. It piques my interest in her as a musician, and certainly makes me want to purchase her album! (source)
