Emmy Rossum Talks “Shameless” Sex Scenes

Amelia McDonell-Parry / January 17, 2011

“It doesn’t make sense that the character would wear a bra and care at all about what she looks like when she’s having sex. Sex is meant to feel good, and she wants to feel good. Her life is so s**tty in so many ways. Some people use alcohol, some people use gambling–and some people use sex.”

Emmy Rossum explains why she’s been willing to go nude-ish in sex scenes for her new Showtime series “Shameless.” I couldn’t help but think of Sarah Jessica Parker when I read this quote. SJP famously refused to go nude or topless for her “Sex and the City” sex scenes — Carrie Bradshaw always kept her bra on. [Vegas Magazine]
