Emmy Rossum Opens up About Her Decision to Leave ‘Shameless’
Emmy Rossum calls her nine season experience as Fiona, “a wonderful journey.”
In an interview with Shape Magazine, Emmy Rossum opened up about her decision to leave Shameless and how she feels about it. “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.” The critically-acclaimed comedy series has been on the air since 2011 with over 100 episodes under its belt.

The last twelve months have featured big changes. Leaving Shameless, directing, moving to New York, and total overhaul of my approach to food, exercise and body confidence. I spoke to @shape about authenticity, listening to your gut, the cycle of “compare and despair”, reconnecting to the joy of food through cooking, and why as women we should take up as much space as possible in the room. Not to mention embracing a natural hair texture and appreciating what nature has given us. Shout-outs to @gstbody @loroxburgh @bewellbykelly and the incredible work being done by @gorilladoctors. @shape on newsstands tomorrow & link in bio.
The actress, who is the cover star for this months issue of Shape, is confident about where she will go from here, saying, “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.” The star went on to discuss her work ethic, meal prep, health journey and more.
