Emmy Rossum Talks Sex on the First Date with 'Cosmopolitan'

Emmy Rossum is fabulously flirty on the October 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan magazine, on newsstands September 9!

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

On guys confusing her with her Shameless character Fiona: “I feel like on the first date with a guy he’ll think I’m easy (like Fiona), and that’s so disconcerting. It’s not like I haven’t had sex on the first date, but usually that ended up in a two year relationship. I don’t gravitate to the jock; it’s the nerdy guy in the corner. I’m dating a writer now [Sam Esmail, the writer-director of her film Comet]. Writers are sexy.”

On texting with guys: “I once found a guy I was dating dirty-texting another woman and I completely lost my shit. Texting is so dangerous! I won’t even give guys my number, because I know me. We’ll start texting and he’ll start emoticon-ing and I’ll start emoticon-ing, and soon we have a big mess. I’m a very flirty person in general.”

On whether she’d get married again: “I hope I do. Honestly, I was so young, I don’t think I knew what marriage meant. My parents were never married, and I was teased in school and called a bastard. So the idea of marriage as safety forever was idealized in my head, and we rushed into it.”

    I stopped buying Cosmo and a whole whack of other magazines because of those depraved Armenian reality stars. They ruined all of my favorite publications, especially Vogue. If they’re not on the cover, then they’re hidden somewhere in the middle. Famous for nothing talentless trash. They are a sign of the last days. Armageddon is most definitely near. I miss the old days when celebrities used to have at least one talent. (Canadians say “a whole whack” as per the urban dictionary. That means a lot of something.)

    She is talking about what? Sex? This woman is so BORING. I bet she doesn’t know anything about it.

    @Lee: I tend to think that the only people that call others names rooted in misogyny are either stuck in the 50s, aren’t getting any or are pretty “slutty” themselves. As you were

    There’s a lot more to marriage than a couple of wedding rings and a licence, some couples get hitched and then find neither can cook !
    Marriage can be compared to a car, an encyclopedia that is up for renewal each year, also a horse and buggy/carriage. in retrospect that is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Well said KBB, LOVED that you called them out on their misogyny. Totally going to buy this Cosmo, and I’m a dude. : )

    Bought the issue, loved the pictures, wish her interview had been longer. What would be really cool is if Emmy could do one of those Vogue 73 Question videos, she’d be perfect for that.
