Emily Rossum Will Shatter the Patriarchy One Bikini at a Time

Emily Rossum is so freaking hardcore. She just doesn’t take no for an answer, and if you come at her, she will cut you. She’s the only liberal celebrity that no one can hate, probably because she’s so damn nice. When she encounters classic Hollywood bullshit, she doesn’t stay silent.

Like the time she was asked to appear for an audition in a bikini. Rossum is a professional. She asked to read the script. There was no bikini scene in the movie. “He [the director] wanted to know if I was fat now. That was basically the question,” she said. It was basically just the director being a creep, and it’s not like this thing is rare. Just no one ever speaks up about it. Rossum continued to say,

“‘We really love your work, but we just want to see how tight your ass is.’ Are you f—ing kidding me? Last time I checked, I’m not a f—ing model.”

These guys should learn that Rossum won’t be screwed with. Remember when they literally tried to pay her less because she was a woman? She didn’t take that lying down either, and negotiated a salary equal to her male Shameless co-star.

Rossum really has it all going on. She stares Trump supporter death threats down with a steely gaze. She does a hilarious and cutty Justin Bieber impression. And it’s not like she won’t strike a sexy pose if you ask nicely. Literally just treat her like you would a human being, and she’ll work with you. If you manage not be the utter scum of the Earth, Rossum is probably willing to meet you halfway.
