Emmy Rossum Admits She's Never Done Hard Drugs, Is a 'Ball Buster'

Emmy Rossum is chic and stylish on the cover of Company magazine’s January 2014 issue, on newsstands December 11.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Shameless star had to share with the mag:

On her sarcastic nature: “I’m kind of a ball-buster. If people don’t know me very well, they tend to think I’m sarcastic and cutting… Hilary [Swank] would give me some input on a scene on You’re Not You and I’d say, ‘OK, I guess I should listen to you because you’ve got an Oscar or two!’ People were like, ‘I can’t believe she’s talking to Hilary that way!’ But she totally got me and we became really close friends.”

On wanting her Shameless role: “I did watch [The British version of Shameless] because I kind of wanted to know the tone. But then I started watching it on mute. I didn’t want to hear the delivery of dialogue and I was so concerned I would just try and mimic it. I wanted that part sooo badly… [At first] I got “she’s too polished, she’s too glam. She’s from New York and goes to the Met Ball. No one would believe her as Southside Chicago”.

On drugs and dating: “[My mum is] very old-fashioned about ethics and drugs and alcohol. Weirdly she is very progressive about boys. She never had a thing with me going out on dates, even at 15 or 16… I would say there was a lot of openness in the house – but no drugs, no alcohol. To this day, I’ve never done a hard drug. I’ve never done cocaine, I’ve never done heroin, I’ve never done Ecstasy, which is literally everywhere. It just was never interesting to me. The feeling of being out of control or doing anything that could potentially harm me was just not my cup of tea. I would literally rather run down the street naked and I’ve done almost that.”
