Shameless actress Emmy Rossum revealed she will have nude scenes in season 2 of the hit Showtime series. In preparation for the scene, she shaved her legs, and she inadvertently taught her sister on the show, Emma Kenney, 12, who plays Debbie, how to shave.
Recently when speaking to Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately, Emmy Rossum said, “We have nude scenes, so I was in the trailer, shaving my legs before a nude scene and she [Emma Kenney] came in the trailer and I’m in like, you know, pasties and my robe, getting ready for my naked scene and she’s like, ‘Oh, that’s how you … shaving your legs? I’ve never done that before’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, let’s do it.’”
Later, the Shameless actress, who plays Fiona Gallagher on the series, realized she may have overstepped her bounds by teaching the 12-year-old how to shave since normally that is something a mother would do. Oops! Of course, these types of things likely often happen on series where the cast members often become like family. Just because Emmy Rossum plays Emma Kenney’s sister on TV doesn’t mean that the two do not have a sister-like relationship now because of their closeness on the set.
What do you think? Was teaching her TV sister how to shave in real life too much?
