October 25, 2013 - ‘Shameless’ Exclusive: Gallagher Family At War!
Over the last three seasons, the cast of Showtime’s simply sensational Shameless has developed such magical chemistry off-screen it truly feels like you’re watching a family on-screen. That made it all the tougher to watch several of them step out on their own at the end of last year. Thankfully the cast reveals the upcoming fourth season is all about reuniting the family!
ETonline scored an exclusive video from the recent season four photoshoot where the theme was Gallaghers At War. We’re talking torches, Molotov cocktails, fireworks; basically Carl’s dream come true.
Check out our exclusive peek behind the scenes to hear Emmy Rossum, William H. Macy and the rest of the cast tease what fans can expect from the highly anticipated season four premiere!
Shameless returns January 12, 2014 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
April 13, 2013 - A Class Act: Emmy Rossum Talks Music, Old Hollywood Glam, And “Closet Time”
26-year-old born and bred New Yorker Emmy Rossum is a breath of fresh air—besides being young, talented, and famous, she is graceful, poised, and (shocking in Hollywood) totally has her head on straight. This year Rossum dropped her second studio album, “Sentimental Journey,” and has a starring role on Showtime’s hit series “Shameless.” No complaints from this starlet, who loves every minute of her busy schedule. “The Thread” snagged a few minutes with Rossum to talk music, her love for old Hollywood glam, and some behind-the-scenes shenanigans from the “Shameless” set. Plus, she shares her biggest red carpet style regret: a too-heavy Ralph Lauren beaded gown that she wore to the 2005 Met Gala.
November 27, 2012 - Emmy to Release New Album, Sentimental Journey Jan 29th
We are pleased to announce that Emmy Rossum has been signed to Warner Bros Records! Rossum will release a collection of covers of classic songs that span the ‘20s to the ‘60s entitled Sentimental Journey on January 29th, 2013. You can pre-order the album now on Amazon or in the online store here.
The album’s highlights include its title track, which was a No. 1 hit for Les Brown and His Band of Renown with Doris Day as the vocalist in 1945; “These Foolish Things,” a ’30s standard that has been recorded by everyone from Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby to Rod Stewart and Michael Bublé; “Summer Wind,” which was popularized by Frank Sinatra in 1966; and “I’ll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time,” which was a Top 5 hit for the Andrews Sisters in 1941.
“I grew up surrounded by classical music singing in the Children’s Chorus at The Metropolitan Opera and when I would come home, the house was filled with the voices of Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke, and Judy Garland,” Rossum says. “For as long as I can remember, my mother would sing ‘Apple Blossom Time’ to me as a bedtime lullaby. Classics, jazz, and standards really infused my childhood and so it felt quite natural to finally make this record.” Last winter, Rossum hit upon the idea to make an album that felt like a musical calendar, an album that would take listeners on an emotional journey through the 12 months of the year. “Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month,” Rossum explains. “Some songs were obvious fits, like ‘Summer Wind’ for June, ‘Apple Blossom Time’ for May, ‘Autumn Leaves’ for October, and ‘Pretty Paper’ for December. Others songs were less literal fits. I chose ‘Nobody Knows You (When You’re Down and Out)’ for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months.”
Recorded over three days at The Village in Los Angeles, Sentimental Journey was produced by Rossum’s friend Stuart Brawley, who also co-wrote and produced her 2007 album Inside Out. “I wanted the record to sound authentically of the era, which is why I had all the musicians play live together in one room while I sang on a vintage mic in the vocal booth,” Rossum says. “I love the sound of 1920’s records, like the Bessie Smith songs I grew up listening to, which is why we mastered to tape. I wanted the record to have the harmonic influences of The Andrews Sisters and the swing of Sinatra records, but wanted it to also feel authentically me.”

October 30, 2012 - Josh Duhamel Joins Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum in ‘You’re Not You’
The “Transformers” and “All My Children” vet will star across Rossum, who plays a self-absorbed college student who becomes a caretaker for a woman with ALS.
Josh Duhamel is in negotiations to star opposite Emmy Rossum in the drama You’re Not You, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The film also stars Hilary Swank, and is being produced by the Oscar-winning actress and her 2S Films partner Molly Smith, along with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures.
You is an adaptation of a novel by Michelle Wildgen and tells the story of a self-absorbed college student (Rossum) who undergoes a life change when she begins a part-time job taking care of a woman (Swank) who has ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Ask a drama series actress to name the toughest part of her job, and inevitably the conversation turns to motherhood and the pressure of “doing it all.” But this year’s contenders are candid about much more: nudity, terrible auditions and “inhuman” hours were mentioned by the six women in our Emmy-season kickoff roundtable panel: Claire Danes, 33 (Showtime’s Homeland), Mireille Enos, 36 (AMC’s The Killing), January Jones, 34 (AMC’s Mad Men), Julianna Margulies, 45 (CBS’ The Good Wife), Emmy Rossum, 25 (Showtime’s Shameless), and Kyra Sedgwick, 46 (TNT’s The Closer).
April 9, 2012 - Hear Emmy Rossum Sing in New Cotton Campaign
Sure she has a Broadway background, but we haven’t heard Emmy Rossum sing pop like this in quite some time! The Shameless star works her pipes as the face of the new Cotton Incorporated “Fabric of Our Lives” campaign, singing the iconic jingle while running around New York City.
But that’s just the half of it: Camilla Belle is another face of the company, and stars in a similar spot that takes place in Los Angeles. Together, the girls’ ads make up a “Tale of Two Cities” theme that showcases the versatility of cotton fashions inspired by, you guessed it, New York and L.A.
In the exclusive clip above — debuting on TV networks Monday — Rossum wears chic cotton looks by Monique Lhuillier, Elie Tahari, Oscar de la Renta and Phillip Lim. “The range of cotton fashions in the commercials shows that whether you dress East Coast, West Coast or anything in between, cotton fits,” explains Cotton Incorporated advertising director Glenn Sciachitano.
Cotton will also launch some fun extras on TheFabricOfOurLives.com, including a tour of Rossum’s closet (it’s categorized by occasions!), a blog from Belle, downloads of each star singing and more. The actresses follow in the footsteps of past Cotton spokeswomen like Kate Bosworth and Zooey Deschanel.

February 16, 2012 - Guess Who Lost ‘Parent Trap’ Role to Lindsay Lohan
Before all the arrests and jail time, Lindsay Lohan was the adorable redhead who won us over playing a duel role of identical twins Hallie and Annie in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap. The role won Lohan a Young Artist Award for best performance in a feature film — as well as a three-film contract with Disney.
Although we really can’t imagine anyone else in the role now, there is one Hollywood actress who is still upset about not being cast. Can you guess which actress almost landed the role? Hint: She’s pretty Shameless.
Reflecting on all her auditions, the 25-year-old brunette revealed to Celebuzz that she’d give anything to go back in time to nail her Parent Trap audition.
“I was 12, but I really wanted the role,” she revealed.
Does Emmy have any hard feelings?
“Not at all. Lindsay beat me out of the role… I’m having the time of my life and currently working on Shameless,” she added. Sounds like everything worked out after all.
