Cosmopolitan Magazine Recruits Emmy Rossum for October 2014 Cover

Embracing her reluctant media darling tendencies, Emmy Rossum is fun and flirty on the front of Cosmpolitan for October 2014.

The “Shameless” star tells the publication that she constantly gets confused with her character Fiona when going on first dates- “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…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 filmComet]. Writers are sexy.”

And while many of her peers love to use text messages to communicate, Rossum tries to steer clear- “I once found a guy I was dating dirty-texting another woman and I completely lost my shit. 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.”

Emmy also shares about her aspiration to get hitched again someday- “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.”
