Emmy Rossum is currently filming the new season of her hit Showtime series Shameless.

The 30-year-old actress signed on for season eight after pushing for equal pay to her male counterpart, William H. Macy, something she says he supported.

“I’ll tell you the person who supported me the most was William H. Macy,” Emmy recently told THR. “To have the man counterpart on my show be like, ‘Yes, she does deserve this and more’ was so validating. And after it became public, it was a quick resolution.”

    William H. Macy is a higher caliber actor than Miss Rossum given his extensive career and awards and he is the “draw” to the show. I like E. Rossum don’t get me wrong but equal pay should require equal credentials should it not? Let’s not let the idea of equality narrow our vision. For example, two people on the same factory line doing the same work requires equal pay.

    Not really, I get your thinking for the first few seasons but now they are in season 8. They do pretty much the same work and probably Emmy more.
