Emmy Rossum is hot. For further proof, just hit the thumbs to see her in Modern Luxury Manhattan. In the magazine, Emmy discusses how she nearly didn't land the role of Fiona Gallagher in Shameless because of her looks. "They didn't want to see me; they wouldn't even [let me] audition," Rossum confessed. "They thought my image was too glamorous, that I couldn't not be pretty." Eventually, Emmy made a video of herself as Fiona and sent it in to the producers of the show. After three more auditions, the 26-year-old actress was selected for the role.
