About Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum wants to know how much you “actually weigh.” The celebrity Shameless actress, director and singer-songwriter has been an active voice on social media for empowerment and equality. Stunning her millions of social followers with news of her Shameless departure, Emmy shifted the conversation toward self-worth advocacy in a viral series of Instagram stories, inspiring fans to join Jameela Jamil’s @i_weigh Instagram social movement. Continually using her social platforms to promote equality, Emmy teamed up with Harry Lennix in 2018 in “A Politician” #ThatsHarassment YouTube PSA supporting the #metoo movement, and joined her Shameless cast in going purple against bullying for GLAAD #SpiritDay.
