Emmy Rossum is loved for her roles in films such as The Phantom of the Opera, Beautiful Creatures and as Fiona Gallagher in the hit Showtime TV series Shameless. However, the star admits that her on-screen roles sometimes confuse guys in her personal life.
During an interview for the October 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, the beauty revealed that she worries that men think that she’s easy, and that’s slightly unnerving.
“I feel like on the first date with a guy he’ll think I’m easy (like Fiona), and that’s so disconcerting. It’s not like I haven’t had sex on the first date, but usually that ended up in a two-year relationship,” she told the mag. “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.”
While the actress may have found love now with her current beau, she’s been involved with some less than desirable men, such as the boyfriend she found dirty-texting another girl.
“I once found a guy I was dating dirty-texting another woman and I completely lost my shit,” Rossum tells the mag. “Texting is so dangerous! 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.”
Of course it’s too early to tell whether Rossum and Esmail have plans to walk down the aisle, but if they ever do it would be the second time for the beauty, who was previously married to music executive Justin Siegel in 2008 for just 19 months.
So does Rossum intend to get married for a second time?
“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.”
