Actress Emmy Rossum has had lots to celebrate in the past few months. The Shameless star sought, and received, equal pay with her male counterpart (William H. Macy) on the hit Showtime series. She also bought, renovated and sold her first New York apartment, and showcased it in an Elle Decor spread.

Rossum bought the 800-square-foot apartment at 455 East 57th Street in 2015 for just $720,000. The actress quietly put the pied-à-terre on the market in November 2016 for $1.15 million (a mere month after the magazine feature), and it went into contract just over a month later. The buyer, Martin Levine, paid $1.1 million for the unit; just a touch under the listing price.

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom Sutton Place pad was in need of a serious renovation when she bought it—she declared it a “pied-à-teardown,” and enlisted Elle Decor to help her redesign the space. Rossum selected designer Antonino Buzzetta for the project, telling him her interior aesthetic preference is “chic, European, the look of a modern girl who has inherited her grandmother’s stuff. I wanted it to have a young energy, but with old-fashioned touches,” she said.

The final result can be seen in all its fashionable glory in the aforementioned magazine spread and in the slideshow above.

The co-op is a refreshing break from the glassy, modern look that is so prominent right now. The herringbone floors, beamed ceilings and millwork throughout is fitting for the prewar nature of the apartment, which is accessed through a semi-private landing.

A wood-burning fireplace in the living room has a 19th century carved Carrara marble mantle imported from Paris, surrounded by antique mirrors and built-in oak bookcases, per the listing held by Sotheby’s International Realty broker Leslie S. Modell.

The kitchen, with Scavolini custom cabinetry and Carrina Caesarstone countertops, features an island seating area and is open to the dining area. The master bedroom faces north and south, with custom closets and a windowed bathroom bedecked in marble and glass, as well as marble geometric tile flooring and Ralph Lauren lighting.

We can’t say for certain why Rossum chose to part ways with the home after putting so much effort into it—it didn’t seem like an investment property. She is, however, getting married at some point in the near future, so perhaps she and fiancé Sam Esmail are looking for a bigger space. We hope they find a way to take that fireplace mantle with them.

Emmy Rossum Is Officially Leaving ‘Shameless’

Emmy Rossum is officially leaving Showtime’s Shameless.

“I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block,” the actress wrote Thursday morning in a lengthy and emotional post on her Facebook page.
Rossum has been the female lead on the Warner Bros. Television-produced dramedy since the pilot. The series, which is set to return for its ninth season Sept. 9, is currently in production. Season nine recently received an increased order for 14 episodes as Showtime will split its run in two, with the second returning in January.

“Emmy Rossum will forever be part of the Shameless family,” showrunner John Wells said Thursday afternoon in a statement. “She has been integral to the show’s success, from her wonderful portrayal of Fiona to her leadership role on set, as well as directing multiple episodes of the series. We are hard at work now creating a season nine finale for Shameless which we hope will provide a Gallagher-worthy sendoff for Fiona that honors the great work Emmy has done. It is always bittersweet when an ensemble member decides to move out of the proverbial house, but our door will always remain open for Fiona to return home for a visit, or to move back in. I look forward to continuing the stories of this wildly unpredictable family and all of us on Shameless will miss Emmy and her wonderful Fiona.”

Shameless is a hugely important show for Showtime. The dramedy, from creator and showrunner Wells, is the premium cable network’s highest-rated scripted original, with Rossum playing Fiona, the eldest child and mother figure of the dysfunctional Gallagher family. Rossum exiting Shameless deals the series a huge blow at a time when it is increasingly valuable to Showtime, which next year will bid farewell to the signature drama Homeland as well as The Affair.

“We were saddened when Emmy Rossum let us know that the upcoming ninth season of Shameless would be her last,” said Showtime president of programming Gary Levine. “But we are filled with an overwhelming sense of joy and gratitude for Emmy’s inspired work on our series, of course in front of the camera but also behind it. Fiona Gallagher will always be one of Showtime’s iconic characters, and we applaud Emmy for bringing this character to life in such a natural, touching and fearless performance. On behalf of everyone at Showtime and her millions of fans, we thank you Emmy!”

Rossum in 2016 delayed the season eight renewal as she fought for — and received — pay equality with male lead William H. Macy (who plays everyone’s father, Frank). The actress had sought salary parity — and more — to compensate for the years of being paid less than Macy. She received parity but not more, sources said at the time.

“For eight years and more than 100 episodes, Emmy Rossum has delivered a deeply honest, authentic and unflinching portrayal of Fiona Gallagher, one of television’s great characters,” producers Warner Bros. TV said in a statement. “We wish her all the best as she explores the next chapter in her career. But before that, we are excited for fans of Shameless to see Emmy and the entire ensemble cast continue the adventures of the Gallagher family in the show’s upcoming ninth season.”

Rossum is currently attached to star as Angelyne in a limited series based on The Hollywood Reporter’s article about the Hollywood icon. The mini is being produced by Rossum’s husband, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, and hails from Universal Cable Productions. The timing of Rossum’s announcement came a day after THR exclusively reported that Esmail would be ending USA Network’s Mr. Robot with its upcoming fourth season.

A Shameless goodbye: Emmy Rossum previews her ‘moving’ exit and Fiona’s new life

type

Network Genre

  • Comedy,
  • Drama

It’s hard to picture Shameless without Emmy Rossum, but that will soon be the reality when the actress steps away from the beloved series that her character, Fiona Gallagher, has been the heart and soul of for nine seasons.

“I was 23 when the show started and it’s been pretty remarkable the confidence that it’s given me,” Rossum, now 32, tells EW. “It’s been a long, wonderful journey and I’m so close to my Gallagher family that to walk away is quite bittersweet, but it did feel like it was time for the character to spread her wings and that there was less need for her. I never want something to just feel like a job and so I’m leaving while I still love it.”

It has been far from smooth sailing for Fiona down the stretch, with the aspiring entrepreneur’s life crashing down earlier this season, sending her into an alcohol-fueled spiral. But, as the most recent episode ended with Fiona hitting rock bottom and going to an AA meeting, Rossum appears to be getting both the “messy darkness” that she loves and the happy ending.

Ahead of Rossum’s final two episodes, EW chatted with the actress about Fiona’s “moving” goodbye, whether she will return, and what’s next. Also, above, see the first look at the actress’ final episode (is she finally visiting Ian in prison?!).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You’ve talked a bit about this already, but why did now seem like the right time for you and the character to leave? It’s been nine seasons, so obviously you’ve put in more than your share of time.
EMMY ROSSUM: I had felt that coming for a while — 110 hours of a character is a long time and it’s one that’s been a really fascinating journey. I’ve never had the opportunity to tell a story in such long-form before, and it can become quite fascinating, because you just get to investigate so many different aspects of a person and experience their growth over a long period of time. And it was also, not only experiencing that as a character but myself as well. I was 23 when the show started and now I’m not and it’s been pretty remarkable the confidence that it’s given me, that John Weells has given me, encouraging me to write and direct, giving me the chance to direct on the show, mentoring me as a writer. And it really does feel like we’ve spent nine wonderful years together, and it also feels like I’m excited to experience what else is out there, what other characters will excite me in the way that Fiona did for so long, and to see what else I can tackle, what is scary and exciting and wonderful. I always look forward to things that I’m not sure if I can pull off, things that intimidate me when I look at them on a page. I like that journey of discovery and I never ever want to become complacent in my work. So yeah, it does feel like I’ve really grown up, and also she has in watching the incredible rise and fall and rise again and fall again. There have really been two distinct cycles for her over the nine seasons. We’ve watched her ascend and gain some traction in her life in the first few seasons, and season 4 really took a dip with drugs and jail time, and then she built her way back up, became the manager of a restaurant, a property owner, and then her hubris led her to bite off more than she can chew. And when she lost it all, the same old demons and coping mechanisms came back with her anger, her inherited trait of alcoholism. And so it’s been really fun to play those dynamics, especially because they are so different from who I am.

We’ve seen tough stretches for Fiona over the years, but this was definitely a very dark run for her over the back half of the season. She had pulled herself up and really made some big moves, only for it to come crashing down. What did you enjoy about this arc and why did it seem like a fitting final one for you?
I always wanted Fiona to leave on a high note and I’ve campaigned for that since the beginning. Fiona is not only close to my heart, but I think kind of like a pillar of strength in the family. But at the same time, I love the messy darkness that she falls into. I love the chaos that she craves and attracts and it’s much, much more exciting and thrilling to play her when she’s going through s— and when she’s combusting than when she’s a successful property owner. So, selfishly, I feel two ways about it. As an actor, I want to play a mess, it’s more fun, it’s more expansive, especially taking her to the lows that she went this year, which are so much lower than she’s ever been.

It doesn’t get much lower than waking up next to Frank (William H. Macy) in your old building that you’re now squatting in and being so hungover that you’re nonstop vomiting.
Reading on the page, much of what John wrote for this episode, especially the end of it, which you’re talking about, is relatively silent. And that’s some of my favorite acting to do. Don’t get me wrong, every actor loves a monologue, but to get to express things just by repeatedly vomiting and showing what her life has become — in silence — is quite exciting. And John is always very, very specific about how he writes silent scenes. It’s extremely emotionally specific. So he really gives you a road map of how that scene should be and he gives me a lot of reign to experiment in that.

That episode also featured Fiona bonding with Frank, which was a fun dynamic that turned depressing. Considering her state and your impending exit, did it seem important to have one last big plot featuring the two of them together?
It’s really fascinating for me to watch Fiona wonder if she’s an alcoholic. You will see that in episode 13. After she goes to AA, she’s struggling with the fact that she hasn’t always been dependent on alcohol, but it’s a coping mechanism that she’s learned and it’s one that is very familiar and one that has become very destructive. It’s a gray era of substance abuse and something that I found incredibly interesting. She is a child of a junkie and an alcoholic, so watching her wrestle with that, and then you have her brother, who is an alcoholic, goes to AA all the time, has been on the straight and narrow and making something of his self. So it’s really interesting how the coping mechanisms that you learn or inherit can provide some road bumps for you in the future, and it’s been really exciting to play that, to wonder if she really is a lot like Frank. In episode 12, she begins capitalizing on the blackout, and her and Frank team up in a way that I don’t think we’ve ever really seen and kind of enjoy each other. At the same time, she’s telling her that the way that she drinks is very destructive in a way that doesn’t make her happy like it makes him happy; it makes her angry and connects her to her feelings in a way that aren’t as palpable and reachable as when she’s sober.

What can you tell me about the next two episodes and how the show says goodbye to Fiona?
Something that was set up previously kind of pays off for Fiona. A door opens and she walks through. She goes to start to make her life elsewhere, and the way in which she says goodbye is quite moving. I think the final moment between her and Frank is actually quite telling about really how much he loves his kids but just really can’t be a parent and there’s an understanding there. It reminds me of a scene in the pilot. There’s a scene with Frank and Fiona in the finale right at the very end where he’s trying to acknowledge what she did for the family and it’s in some way reminiscent of what Fiona wanted to hear in the pilot when he was passed out drunk in the living room and she was patting herself on the back and saying “Good job, Fiona.” Now, of course, she doesn’t hear those exact words because Frank is a terrible narcissist and not very generous with words, but there’s an understanding that happens and I think the way John blocked the scene was so smart. There’s a separation between the characters but there’s a lot unsaid and understood between them. I’m quite happy with the life that Fiona is going to make for herself and the things she’s put in place to take care of them before she leaves.

Cameron Monaghan left earlier this season and is already coming back, so what are the chances that we see you again before the series concludes? And I would assume it will eventually end despite you saying it can go on “forever.”
I would never close my door on the family. Like I said in what I wrote and what I said to them repeatedly, they should just think of me being down the block. I’m just in New York. It’s not like I’ll never be in L.A. or Chicago ever again, so I’m not that far away. But for me, quite honestly, I’m not sure what more story can be told for her. I really liked the way we ended it. But never say never; I really love all the people I work with. There’s so many other things that I want to do but I love my family.

You wrapped Shameless a few months ago, so what has it like to have more time to do other things? And what more are you hoping to do now that you’re more available?
Now that I have so much executive time! I’m thrilled actually. Coming right off Shameless, I wrapped on a Saturday and then flew to New York and started prepping for Modern Love on Monday and I got to direct a beautiful episode with Shea Whigham and Julia Garner. I just had a wonderful time, worked with some really awesome up and coming New York actors, just shooting in my home city and being able to practically walk to work in the morning was pretty awesome. I’d love to do theater, I want to do more directing, I’ve written a feature that I’d like to make, we’re developing Angelyne as a limited series and it’s pretty awesome, the scripts are really good so I’m excited about that. I’m pretty psyched about the opportunities that I see.

Shameless airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.

How ‘Shameless’ Actress Emmy Rossum Overhauled Her Entire Wellness Philosophy

Emmy Rossum has strong opinions.

Take her feelings about weight, for instance. “The idea that stepping on a piece of metal is how you should define yourself? I don’t think so!” says the actor, 32. Last summer, Emmy went on Instagram to express that sentiment to her millions of followers as part of the “I Weigh” movement, which aims to build body positivity.

“During my life, the scale has told me that I’ve gained and lost, but that piece of metal doesn’t really know. Here’s what I actually weigh,” she posted, then listed her best qualities and achievements, including: “drive, kindness, 100+ hours of television, one happy marriage, animal rescuer.” For the star, it was a no-brainer to speak out. “I think it’s vital that we stop focusing on unimportant things, like a number, and start thinking of our real worth as what we’ve accomplished, as well as the things that make us unique and strong,” Emmy says. “Your appearance is just one part of you. It doesn’t determine who you are or what you’re capable of.” (Related: Real Women Share Their Favorite Non-Scale Victories)

She’s just as decisive about her career: When Emmy made the sudden announcement that she was leaving Shameless, the critically acclaimed Showtime series that she has starred in for nine seasons (the second half of her final season on the show premieres on January 20), it seemed fitting that she did it on her own terms.

“I made 110 episodes playing the character of Fiona, and it’s been an incredible journey,” she says. “I’ve learned a lot about myself as a person and as an actor. I want to leave the show while I still love it, and I know the door is open to come back if that feels right. I’m also extremely proud of what I was able to accomplish off-screen, with my negotiation for equal pay and the effect that had on other women in the industry and in general.”

While leaving the cast she considers “family” is not easy, Emmy is excited about what lies ahead. “The way I look at it is that the end of one thing is the beginning of something else,” she says.”I couldn’t be more thrilled to spend time writing, directing, and seeing what other characters I want to play. It’s both scary and wonderful.”

In the meantime, as she gears up for her next act, Emmy has been doing an internal audit and redefining what wellness means to her. Here are the five key rules she has learned about being healthier and happier.

Trust Your Body

“Last year I did an overhaul. I started listening to my body about what exercise and food make me feel good and how much sleep I really need. My relationship with exercise has always been a very healthy and committed one, mostly because it has helped me reduce stress and anxiety. But I’ve changed my workouts. I used to do a lot of intense cardio and high-intensity interval training, but I’ve scaled some of that back. I felt as if I was in a pattern of doing those things because I thought I was supposed to, not because they gave me joy, and I wanted workouts that made me feel more in tune with my body. So I started doing Pilates-type exercises, specifically a program called GST , which is stretching based. It feels so good. You get the intensity, but it’s not like, Oh my God, how long do I have to do this?

I also realized that alcohol isn’t a good thing for me. It’s not as if it helps me de-stress. In fact, it actually causes me more anxiety the next day. Cutting back and saying I know I’m going to feel better if I don’t have wine tonight has really been good for me.” (Related: The Health Benefits of Not Drinking Alcohol)

My overall approach to food and movement now is holistic. I feel more centered and connected to myself. It’s as if I’m living in the body that I’m supposed to have.”

Meal Prep Is the Best Therapy

“I love to cook. I find it incredibly relaxing. I’ve become a stress cooker, not a stress eater. I’ll roast a bunch of carrots and make some fish and cauliflower rice, so I know what I’m putting in my body. That allows me to have a really good relationship with what I’m eating-avocados and healthy oils, good starches, and foods that are going to fuel me for the rest of my week. (Related: Everything You Need to Stick to Your Resolution to Cook More)

It’s also about tapping into the joy and sensuality in food. I’ve been allergic to gluten since I was a kid, but I can’t exist without carbs. I like seeded bread and things that are whole-grain and gluten-free. I’ve learned how to bake in a Paleo way and eat food that sustains my blood sugar, gives me strength, makes me feel full, and tastes good.” (See: The Importance Difference Between a Food Allergy and Food Intolerance)

Authenticity Is Everything

“As women, we get into a cycle of what I call ‘compare and despair,’ thinking, If I just looked like her, I would be happy. I spent a lot of years wanting to look like the pictures of the girls I saw in magazines, and now I’m trying to love my individuality. I’ve been working on embracing my curly hair, for one thing. And I don’t need makeup every day. We should own our uniqueness and be the healthiest, best version of ourselves we can be.”

Image zoom Photo: David Slijper

Put In the Work

“I’m definitely a type A. I’m always overprepared. But I also ask for help when I need it-from my acting coach; my cinematography teacher; my husband, Sam. I think confidence comes from working really hard at something and knowing that you can be better at it today than you were yesterday. I just read an article that said ‘When you think about yourself a year ago, are you in a better position than you were then?’ Well, the answer for me is definitely yes. I’ve accomplished a lot that I’m super proud of. I’m directing a project for Amazon. I’m married. I’m a good friend. I’m a better daughter than I’ve ever been. And I’m learning how to embrace vulnerability.” (Related: How to Boost Your Confidence In 5 Easy Steps)

Stay Grounded

“Giving a voice to animals is incredibly important to Sam and me. I work with Best Friends Animal Society, which is the leader of the no-kill movement across America. And gorillas-Sam and I went to Rwanda for our honeymoon, and I made him hike into the mountains to see the gorillas, because that’s been a dream of mine. It was such a moving experience that I joined the board of Gorilla Doctors, which cares for, protects, and provides medical attention to these amazing animals. I also work with Los Angeles Mission and do food serving at the homeless shelter downtown. That’s something I’m passionate about.

I am truly blessed to be paid well for a job I love, and it means a lot to me to give back and be engaged in my community. It’s pretty easy for actors to get lost in the bubble of special treatment. I think it’s really important to rip yourself right out of that and plant your feet firmly on the ground, so you don’t lose sight of the real world.”

What Has Emmy Rossum Been up to Since Leaving ‘Shameless?’

Actress and director Emmy Rossum made her mark as the resilient Fiona Gallagher in Shameless. However, she chose to step away after nine seasons. Since leaving, according to her Instagram, she has dabbled more in directing, traveled, and landed the role of Angelyne.

Emmy Rossum | ANGELA WEISS

Emmy Rossum portrayed Fiona Gallagher in ‘Shameless’ for nine seasons

For the first nine seasons of Shameless, Emmy Rossum starred as the central character, Fiona Gallagher. Due to a mentally ill mother who abandoned the family and a dysfunctional, drug addicted-father, Fiona had to raise her five younger siblings since the age of 16.

Even though she lived in extreme poverty and chaos, Fiona was a fighter and someone who her entire family leaned on for support. While a hard worker, she did let loose a few times and went too far, especially with alcohol and a scary incident involving cocaine, but she always seemed to find her way out of anything.

— Shameless on Showtime (@SHO_Shameless) October 19, 2018

As the series progressed, Fiona struggled with wanting to continue to provide for her family and starting her own life. She began dabbling in real estate ventures, some that weren’t so successful, before finally catching a break and received a $100,000 buy-out from an investor.

In the last episode of Season 9, the oldest sibling left half of the money behind for her family before flying out of Chicago. While Fiona will most likely not return for the next season, there is a possibility that she makes a guest appearance in Season 11, as it will be the “last hurrah” for the Gallaghers.

What has Emmy Rossum been up to since leaving ‘Shameless?’

Filming for Shameless Season 9 wrapped in November 2018. In that same month, she announced she directed Emmy-Award winning actress Julia Garner and Shea Whigham (Fast & Furious 6) in Episode 6 of Amazon’s Modern Love.

She also had the opportunity to curate a gift shop for a Ralph Lauren holiday collection. After spending the holidays in Tokyo, Japan, the actress returned to the states for the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards.

In April 2019, she spoke at the Best Friends Animal Society Gala and announced her production company, Composition 8. Rossum has also encouraged her followers to vote several times, supported presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, and spent her Christmas in Australia visiting animal hospitals.

In January 2020, the actress uploaded a picture to Instagram, showing her dramatic change for her first role since Shameless, a limited series titled Angelyne.

Emmy Rossum’s new role in ‘Angelyne’

The show, coming to NBC’s streaming service Peacock, is based on writer Gary Baum’s investigative feature on the mysterious Los Angeles Billboard model, Angelyne.

Rossum’s husband, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, has teamed up with Baum and The Hollywood Reporter to adapt the feature into a series. Rossum will star as a self-made pop culture icon, Renee “Angelyne” Goldberg.

She will also serve as a co-executive producer with her company, Composition 8, alongside her husband, his manager, Chad Hamilton, Lucy Tcherniak, and Allison Miller. Peacock is set to launch in April 2020, so fans can expect to see the series air sometime around then.

Imagine an actress finally reaching a place in her career where she’s so famous that she doesn’t have to audition anymore. That’s the dream for a number of aspiring performers, and a hallowed benchmark that actress Emmy Rossum has attained after years on the popular dramedy Shameless. But becoming a famous actress doesn’t shield one from the grip of sexism—a fact Rossum was reminded of when she was recently asked to sign on for an unnamed big movie. The part was hers, no audition necessary. But there was just one (gross) caveat: the director wanted her to visit his office in a bikini.

Rossum told this story during The Hollywood Reporter’s comedy actress roundtable, saying that she got the offer about a year ago. “My agent called me and was like, ‘I’m so embarrassed to make this call, but there’s a big movie and they’re going to offer it to you. They really love your work on the show. But the director wants you to come into his office in a bikini. There’s no audition. That’s all you have to do.’ ”

That’s all she had to do. Rossum, despite being horrified, didn’t immediately reject the inappropriate request. At first she was puzzled, considering how frequently she shows her body in Shameless. Then she realized the director may have wanted to see her swimwear in person because “he wanted to know if I was fat now,” she said.

“And I actually had this moment like, ‘Well, how good is the part?’ ” Rossum said. “For a second, I was like, ‘Would I do it? Send me the script. Maybe the character is in a bikini in the movie.’ ”

Rossum got her hands on the script and, wouldn’t you know it, there wasn’t one bikini scene in the entire film—nor was there any nudity. As she recalls it now, she can’t help but darkly mock the director, speaking in his voice: ” ‘We really love your work, but we just want to see how tight your ass is.’ Are you fucking kidding me? Last time I checked, I’m not a fucking model.”

Though Rossum eventually passed on the experience, it made her worry about all the younger, lower-profile actresses who are still scrapping for roles and would have likely taken the bikini meeting. After all, there are far more insidious things going on in Hollywood, and if a director would have the gall to ask someone at Rossum’s level to do such a thing, there’s no telling what might be asked of young up-and-comers. “If somebody with my years in the business would think, ‘Well, I wonder if it’s worth it,’ then what would a girl who doesn’t have my success do? She would do it.”

Rossum actually wouldn’t have to look far to find that girl—she could turn to Alison Brie. The Community and Mad Men actress, who will soon lead the Netflix series Glow, recently revealed that she was once asked to audition for the HBO series Entourage in a skimpy bikini-tiny-shorts combo. Brie complied, but by the end of the audition, the casting folks had one more request for her: “They were like, ‘O.K., can you take your top off now?’ ”

As an actress, Emmy Rossum has mastered a wide range of characters. In the movie adaptation of Phantom of the Opera, she played the innocent Christine Daaé, and in Shameless (which she also directed), she took on the tough-as-nails role of Fiona Gallagher. Now she’s the new face of Burt’s Bees’ Beauty and their new “I Am Not Synthetic” campaign, launching a new line of beauty products. Rossum spoke to the Cut about the new job, along with when to eat a whole head of garlic, dancing, and her favorite breakfast.

How I start my morning: With coffee and feeding my dogs. I have two dogs and a cat. Usually they wake me up. I wash my face and brush my teeth all in the shower. I’m one of those people.

If I’m doing my hair and makeup myself I put mousse in my hair and scrunch it up, which I highly recommend for all curly girls. . Then my day look is simple — SPF, under-eye facial oil, a really simple natural day look. I’m a big blush person. I’m not into super contouring, I know it’s all over Instagram but I love blush.

What I eat for breakfast: Breakfast is my favorite meal. If we go out for breakfast usually I’ll have an egg dish or I’ll make eggs. I love shakshuka, which are eggs with tomatoes and eggplant and kale, or I’ll fry up eggs with sautéed spinach, or I’ll make a smoothie. I work with a nutritionist in California called Kelly LeVeque. She makes a smoothie with almond milk, almond butter, spinach, and vanilla protein powder. It’s actually delicious. You don’t taste the spinach. I will use yogurt or protein powder but I’m not into bee pollen and stuff like that. It’s too much for me.

How I like to sweat: I like to dance, and I love classes. I prefer them to a trainer. I like AKT, BBS, all the initials. I just do a different class every day, some barre classes, trampoline classes, boxing classes. Trampoline classes are really good for your lymphatic system and it’s easier on your joints. I did some ballet as a kid but I would by no means call myself a professional dancer. It’s for fun and to sweat it out and not take myself too seriously. I just never even considered trainers. When I was a young actress I couldn’t afford that and I really like the group energy and being able to high-five people in the class.

What wellness means to me: I don’t think of it as a diet, I think of it as a way of life. It’s an approach to health so I can have enough energy, not get sick, and do my job.

My job is often really long hours for months at a time. Especially if I’m directing and acting at the same time, it’s really long hours and with sometimes limited turnarounds. I just need to make sure what I’m putting in my body is fueling me and not going to make me crash. Similarly, I like to make sure that the things I put on my body and on my skin are safe and healthy and not going to create a problem for my skin that I then have to cover up with more makeup.

How wellness has changed for me: I feel like it’s always been something I’ve done. Like my mom raised me in a healthy, clean eating environment. I used to sneak over to other people’s houses to have like, pizza. Having a burger and a coke was a field day for me. It was mostly lots of green vegetables and fish in my house and fruit was for dessert. Carrot juice and garlic were fix-alls in my house.

I got mono once when I was 18 or 19 and I had to go on a press tour for Phantom of the Opera. I ate garlic every single day — a whole head of roasted garlic. I love it, but I’m sure it was not pleasant for those around me because it starts to come out of your skin.

If I know I have a tough few weeks coming up then I’ll try to limit how much physical exercise I’m doing and double up on the healthy foods I’m eating so I have enough energy to get the job done.

On nutrition: It’s pretty clean. I am allergic to gluten and I have a sensitivity that causes immediate canker sores. I’ve been off wheat since I was about 13 years old, so almost forever. I went off cow’s milk, not off dairy completely because I still eat dairy and some cheese. But I went off of cow’s milk for my skin and I realized that almost any pimples went away.

But other than that, I eat everything. I eat sugar, I eat carbohydrates, I eat gluten-free breads. Some of my favorites are roasted chicken and roasted vegetables. I love eggs, I love omelets. I love Burrata so much. I want to take a Burrata-making class. I love sushi. I love Indian food.

My biggest wellness struggle: The pressure to feel that you have to conform to this idea of beauty that’s so widespread right now where everything is airbrushed and contoured. Everyone kind of starts to look the same. And I think I’m hungering for a return to naturalism where you can see peoples’ freckles and the lines in peoples’ faces.

What I love about photography, really, and portraiture, is that you can see peoples’ expressions and real texture, not like this kind of overly contoured, high-lit ideal of Instagram beauty that I find suffocating. I don’t think I cope differently than any other person who is on social media or looking at billboards. It’s not that natural means unpolished or unkempt, it means true to yourself. In this day and age when we’re so attacked by these images of overly plumped lips and cheeks and Botox, it’s so refreshing to see something that looks real.

My best wellness advice: Listen to yourself and your own body. You know what feels good and what looks good on you. Don’t try to fight the things that are unique about yourself.

When it comes to her beauty routine, Emmy Rossum likes to take the natural approach—from the formulas she uses, right down to her aversion to an overly-contoured facade. “If there’s too much, it’s hard to tell what is real anymore, and I’m empowered to lean into the relaxed naturalism aspect of beauty,” she tells InStyle.com. Rossum has steadily been switching her existing makeup formulas to gentler alternatives over the years, but admitted having a heavy hand with the concealer to cover a visible vein just underneath her eye.

“I had been self-conscious about it in the past and would wear thick, thick cover-up under my eyes to try and hide it,” she says. “It’s funny, though. My husband says he fell in love with me because of that blue vein under my eye. I came to rehearsal with very little makeup on for the movie he was directing, and he told the makeup artists, ‘Whatever you do, just make sure you can see the skin under her eyes, because it feels very human.’ I always perceived it as a flaw because my skin is thin in that area, but felt very empowered that it was the flaw in particular he and the others working on the show responded to.”

These days, the undereye concealer isn’t as heavy, usually complementing her complexion with a sole swipe of Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Blush in Shy Pink ($10; walmart.com). It’s a staple she keeps in her makeup bag, especially when traveling, and it even makes regular guest appearances on the set of Shameless. The fact that Rossum has been named the face of the brand couldn’t be a more perfect pairing.

“The blush makes me look and feel more alive and awake. If I’m going through an airport and get a heads-up that photographers are there, I can some sunglasses and blush, and just wing it,” she adds. “When I’m playing Fiona, we’ll sometimes add just a dab of blush on the eyelids to give my face a slight flush.”

We’re sure it also adds to the character’s badass edge, which also comes pretty organically for Rossum.

Emmy Rossum Wants Us to Stop Measuring Ourselves Against Other Women

What has been the most valuable lesson you’ve learned on Shameless?

“I admire Fiona’s confidence in her own skin and her confidence in her body. I think that’s something a lot of women struggle with, so she’s an excellent role model in that way. I like seeing how far she’s come in terms of pulling herself up out of a family that’s economically really struggling. And pulling herself up out of poverty to now be the owner of her own apartment building—that won’t come without its share of problems, being a landlord as she is this year. I like watching that journey. It’s been really fun.”

What advice would you give to women about supporting other women?

“Get past your own insecurity. Somebody else’s success is, in part, your success, too. There is room for everybody to succeed. And swim your own race—stop looking over your shoulder to see what everyone else is doing and how they’re succeeding. Don’t measure yourself against other women. Measure yourself against yourself yesterday and see if you’re better.”

Have you always felt like that?

“Not at all. I think it’s very easy , especially when you’re somewhat in the public eye and people are comparing you to other actresses all the time. The most important thing is to swim your own race and focus on the things that you care about and throw yourself, with as much focused energy as possible, into a project, and leave the rest up to fate.”

The real reason Emmy Rossum left Shameless after season 9

After spending eight years playing family matriarch Fiona Gallagher on the hit Showtime series Shameless, Emmy Rossum decided in 2018 to fly the coop at the end of season 9. For Rossum, the decision had nothing to do with bad blood or pay disputes. The real reason Emmy Rossum left Shameless after season 9? She simply felt it was time for her to spread her creative wings.

In August 2018, Rossum posted a lengthy explanation for her departure to her Facebook page, explaining that the stability of her Shameless gig gave her the courage to move beyond it.

“This kind of stability, this family, has nurtured me and made feel safe enough to stretch and grow creatively,” she wrote. “The way John Wells has shepherded me as an actress, and more recently how he’s encouraged me wholeheartedly as a director and a writer, has been an honor and a privilege.”

Rossum described her acting career prior to landing the role of Fiona Gallagher as a “transient” adventure — one in which roles had come and gone, and in which she had been able to move on to new creative endeavors on a regular basis. Rossum never expected to get the family Shameless gave to her: “See, in real life, unlike Fiona, I’m an only child. I never had a big family. Being ensconced in that messy Gallagher family love is something I’d always dreamed of. But even off set, it feels real. We’ve watched the kids grow up into the strong, talented, independent human beings that they are.”

She went on to call her experience “a gift,” and said that she’s had the best time of her life playing Fiona. “There are few characters — female or otherwise — as layered and dynamic,” Rossum said. “She is resourceful. She is loyal. She is brave. I knew it the second I read the pilot script, this was different, this was special.”

Shameless was an incredible experience overall for the actress, and she felt as though the show had finally (after 10,000 hours of work) reached a point of near-perfection. But for her, that meant it was time to try something new.

Still, Rossum made it clear that she was confident Shameless had many, many years to go, even in her absence: “I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told.” The actress even left the door open for a possible return, writing, “Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block.”

For his part, Shameless star William H. Macy (who plays Fiona’s degenerate father Frank Gallagher) believes the chances of Rossum returning to the family are pretty good. “I think Emmy will come back and make a guest appearance before this thing sets sail,” he told Variety in March 2019. “She better, otherwise I’m gonna grab her by the ear and bring her back.”

Rossum’s departure from the series may feel like a giant hole that will never be filled, but it isn’t that uncommon for actors to leave the TV shows that made them household names. Grey’s Anatomy has killed off dozens of people over the years, and it’ll enter into its 16th season in September 2019 — proof that shows can and do live on without their biggest stars. Shameless showrunner John Wells came from ER, another series known for soldiering on after its stars have left. He told Variety that losing Rossum wasn’t out of the norm: “George Clooney left ER in year five, and we managed to do 10 more years. It’s what people do — they get on with their lives. We hope she’ll come back in at some point and play with everybody again, but she’s got other options.”

Rossum’s final episode of Shameless aired Sunday, March 10, 2019. While it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing her play Fiona any time soon, the character’s departure certainly wasn’t as final as something like a death, so it’s totally possible she’ll make a reappearance at some point in the future. For Wells, at least, the whole thing has given him the chance to build a larger story — one that focuses on how the other characters react to the Fiona situation. And who knows where Shameless could go in the future? There are a lot of avenues to head down when it comes to the Gallagher family.

Shameless season 10 airs November 3 on Showtime.

So I am not in love with the current season. The characters’ many exploits seem to be building toward nothing, and the dumbest plots that were once tertiary — many having to do with Kevin — now seem more prominent. It’s not a mess; it’s just played out and post-peak, and no amount of new infants can change that. And yet — I adore these characters, particularly the Gallagher kids, and I continue to follow them eagerly. The critic in me is disappointed and wants the show to wind down as soon as possible. But the fan in me is still all in, particularly when it comes to Debbie, whose has become more like her father than I ever expected, and Lip, whose storyline now has a little more weight.

Lip, played by Jeremy Allen White, has been one of the more engaging characters all along, since he has changed so thoroughly — and so convincingly — across the years. He’s a brainy guy who needed to channel his intelligence into less self-destructive activities. After some hard knocks, he has turned the corner from being a punk to being a man — a sober man — able to maintain responsibilities. He was the most like his father at one time, and now he’s the least like him.
