Emmy is looking better than ever on the cover of the October issue of ‘Cosmopolitan,’ where the ‘Shameless’ star spills details about dating, texting guys, and possibly walking down the aisle again!
For the past five seasons on the hit Showtime series Shameless, Emmy Rossum, 27, has made a name for herself by playing Fiona Gallagher, the ruthless and most outspoken of the Gallagher clan. While her character may be known for having a string of sexy gentlemen and endless amounts of sexual rendezvous, Emmy herself does not live up to that reputation — and she opened up to Cosmopolitan about that misconception.
Emmy Rossum On One Night Stands — Fears Guys Think She’s Easy:
Emmy wears a black bodycon dress and sexy black heels that give her an edgy look that would make any man stop dead in his tracks on the most recent cover of Cosmopolitan. However, when it comes to dating guys, she is selective…and for good reason.
“I feel like on the first date with a guy he’ll think I’m easy (like Fiona), and that’s so disconcerting,” Emmy told the magazine. “It’s not like I haven’t had sex on the first date, but usually that ended up in a two year relationship…I don’t gravitate to the jock; it’s the nerdy guy in the corner. I’m dating a writer now [Sam Esmail, the writer-director of her film Comet]. Writers are sexy.”
Starting a new relationship can always be a little tricky and just like us Emmy knows all about the science that is texting, or in some cases sexting!
Emmy Rossum Likes To Send Flirty Texts:
“I once found a guy I was dating dirty-texting another woman and I completely lost my shit. Texting is so dangerous!” Emmy explains. “I won’t even give guys my number, because I know me. We’ll start texting and he’ll start emoticon-ing and I’ll start emoticon-ing, and soon we have a big mess. I’m a very flirty person in general.”
Emmy Rossum On Marriage:
While the dating world may be though to navigate at times, Emmy hopes that one day her dating days will be extinct and she will walk down the aisle again. Her first walk was with music executive Justin Siegal back in 2008, but they divorced two years later.
“I hope I do. Honestly, I was so young, I don’t think I knew what marriage meant. My parents were never married, and I was teased in school and called a bastard. So the idea of marriage as safety forever was idealized in my head, and we rushed into it.” Emmy said.
