Emmy Rossum Will Return to 'Shameless,' Tweets Update After Equal Pay Negotiations

Emmy Rossum has seemingly been victorious in her quest for equal pay on Shameless in future seasons.

The 30-year-old actress tweeted moments age, “Playing Fiona Gallagher has been one of the great privileges of my life. I’m so happy to continue w my SHAMELESS family!Back to work in May!”

There were reports that if Emmy did not get what she deserved, she would hold a standout and the show could have potentially gone on without her. The tweet seemingly indicates that she was given equal pay to William H. Macy, her co-star who was recently given a pay raise.

    Absolute entitled, arrogant bullshit. Macy has been working longer than this girl has been alive. It is NORMAL for people in businesses/companies to earn more than their less-experienced colleagues. This is not sexism. It’s common sense.

  • Just Saying

    That’s what I don’t understand about the whole “equal pay” hollywood craze. Macy is an award winning, veteran, tv AND movie star, while Rossum has a few small roles on okay movies and Shameless, why should they be paid the same?

  • Roger Dodger

    ..because she carries a heavier load on this show…as he’s been reduced to a supporting player.

    I get that winning an award raises your salary but they are in season 7 not in 1. She’s really good on Shameless. Why should she be paid less from her co-star?

    And HE went along with it. He came out publicly in support of her getting pay equal to him. These people are terrified of saying something outside the approved political script.

    This show has been on for SEVEN seasons? I’ve never heard of it and never seen a thing she’s been in. I wouldn’t know her name or face if it wasn’t for the blogs constantly reporting her on one political soapbox or another.

    It doesn’t matter. Ask anyone who works for a company, a business, a government agency, a university, whatever. Most people make less than their colleagues who have years more experience than they do. In this case, Macy has DECADES more experience. More experience means more pay in any normal situation.

  • Just Saying

    If she carries the show, why is he the only one winning awards for it? Clearly the people who know about this stuff disagree with you.
