Emmy Rossum covers the January 2014 issue of Companymagazine.
Looking stylish, the 27-year-old actress talked candidly about her role on ‘Shameless,’ “I did watch [The British version of Shameless] because I kind of wanted to know the tone,” Emmy said. “But then I started watching it on mute. I didn’t want to hear the delivery of dialogue and I was so concerned I would just try and mimic it. I wanted that part sooo badly… [At first] I got “she’s too polished, she’s too glam. She’s from New York and goes to the Met Ball. No one would believe her as Southside Chicago.”
Emmy also opened up about drug use, “[My mum is] very old-fashioned about ethics and drugs and alcohol. Weirdly she is very progressive about boys. She never had a thing with me going out on dates, even at 15 or 16… I would say there was a lot of openness in the house – but no drugs, no alcohol. To this day, I’ve never done a hard drug. I’ve never done cocaine, I’ve never done heroin, I’ve never done Ecstasy, which is literally everywhere. It just was never interesting to me. The feeling of being out of control or doing anything that could potentially harm me was just not my cup of tea. I would literally rather run down the street naked and I’ve done almost that.”
