And then as the show started to really have legs. The creepy catch: Rossum would have to show up in a bikini to meet with the director before she could get the part. "There's no audition. That's all you have to do'".

"Shameless" star Emmy Rossum claimed a director wanted to view her in a bikini to see if she was in shape. According to the actress, she realized that the director just wanted to see if she had gotten fat. "That was basically the question", she says.

People scream at me like, 'F- you, Fiona, you overdosed that baby.' They actually think you're that person.

Send me the script. Maybe the character is in a bikini in the movie.' Not in a bikini in the movie. "Not naked in the movie", Rossum said.

Resident Hamid Wahbi said that as he fled, he asked about a neighbor's father but was told he was still inside. More than 200 fire fighters had been tackling the blaze and 12 hours on, the building was still smoking.

"She adds, "(It was like), 'We really love your work, but we just want to see how tight your a** is.' Are you f**king kidding me? "Last time I checked, I'm not a f--ing model".

Imagine an actress finally reaching a place in her career where she's so famous that she doesn't have to audition anymore.

Though Rossum eventually passed on the experience, it made her worry about all the younger, lower-profile actresses who are still scrapping for roles and would have likely taken the bikini meeting.

Of course, the pay gap came up because of Rossum's recent victory over at Shameless, earning pay parity with co-star William H. Macy. But becoming a famous actress doesn't shield one from the grip of sexism a fact Rossum was reminded of when she was recently asked to sign on for an unnamed big movie.

7 percent of U.S. adults think chocolate milk comes from brown cows
A survey of fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders didn't know that pickles - spoiler alert! - are cucumbers. But to a significant portion of Americans, making chocolate milk begins with the color of the cow.

She said that in the same movie she had to kiss a boy - which she had never done before - when the director gave her another suggestion. And I was like, "I'm going to die".

Along from gender equality, Emmy has also shared her thoughts on nudity, saying, "I think we should be equal opportunity P and D. But I only really want to see any nudity if there's a goal for it".

"To have the man counterpart on my show be like, 'Yes, she does deserve this and more, ' was so validating and after that, after it became public, was a very quick resolution".

'You're always supposed to have a guardian on set when you're a minor, but mine was gone, and we did a scene where we broke into a house and then we go swimming in the pool, ' she remembered.

Rossum said that she was baffled by the request, given that she had been showing off her body over seven seasons of Shameless.
