Emmy Rossum

Emmanuelle Grey "Emmy" Rossum (born September 12, 1986) is an American actress and singer-songwriter. She has starred in films such as The Day After Tomorrow, Poseidon, The Phantom of the Opera and Dragonball Evolution. In her first major studio film, Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, Rossum starred as Katie Markum, the ill-fated daughter of small-business owner Jimmy Markum, played by Sean Penn. Following Mystic River, Rossum had a breakthrough role as Laura Chapman in the Roland Emmerich eco-disaster film The Day After Tomorrow. She later returned to New York, where she was the last to audition, in full costume and make-up, for the coveted role of Christine Daae in the on-screen adaptation of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. Following an international search for talent, and having nearly missed the audition on account of a family engagement, Rossum was asked to audition in person for Webber at his home in New York. After seeing her audition, Webber felt she proved her ability to play the young opera singer who becomes the object of the phantom's obsessive love. In 2006, Rossum appeared in Poseidon - Wolfgang Petersen's high-budget remake of the disaster film The Poseidon Adventure. She played Jennifer Ramsey, the daughter of Kurt Russell's character, Robert Ramsey. As Jennifer, she is described as a 19-year-old heroine because she is not a damsel in distress, and is very proactive and strong in all situations. Rossum also appeared as Juliet Capulet in a 2006 Williamstown Theatre Festival production of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. In early 2009 Rossum appeared in Dragonball Evolution. Rossum described her action role in Dragonball as the hardest thing she's ever done. Her next big screen venture is the indie Dare. After her role in The Phantom of the Opera, Rossum was offered several deals to record classical albums, but refused, opting to create an album of contemporary, more mainstream music.

According to Daily Mail, "The 27-year-old actress took her two dogs with her as she headed out on the open road on Thursday and Friday. At one point, the beautiful brunette took her two dogs out for a roam Ė so that her four legged friends could stretch their legs. In the photo she posed holding their leashes, while clad in a puffy black jacket, grey scarf, and a white top, showing off her long slender stems in a pair of black knee-length leggings. Emmy shielded her eyes in a pair of large reflective sunglasses and held up a white mug of coffee. She also snapped photos of interesting absurdities along the way Ė including a bevy of paintbrushes sticking out of the sand and some ominous looking bones." Sounds like she's having fun exploring on her trip!

If you like the idea of rocking a striped frock this summer, check out several similar options to the one that Emmy is wearing right here on CoutureCandy, such as Alice + Olivia's Striped Nyla Dress in Black/White, or one of Bailey 44's striped numbers. Both the Photo Finish Dress in Black/White and the Body Dress in Black are cool options.

While the two have kept the details of their breakup to themselves, it seems that Emmy is doing well and moving on with both her life and career. The actress recently filmed the movie Comet alongside Justin Long and is gearing up for the new season of "Shameless." I just hope it won't too awkward when she sees Jacob on set!

EMMY IS BRIGHT AND CHEERY IN HOLLYWOOD

Emmy Rossum seen on Jun 04 2013 in Hollywood, CA. Emmy Rossum looked bright and cheery as she attended a panel for her Showtime series "Shameless," which was held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in Hollywood on June 4. For her summery ensemble, Emmy chose to rock an Oscar de la Renta floral dress, paired with bright green Bionda Castana heels, Amrapali drop earrings and a Le Vian ring with a green stone. Such fun colors! To get Emmy's look, try wearing either Phoebe Couture's Printed Tank Dress in Blue Multi or Alexia Admor's Kelly Handkerchief Spaghetti Strap Dress, and then choose the perfect jewels to complement your look. For options similar to ER's, I'd suggest pairing Liz Larios' Wood and Chain Ring in Natural with MadStone's Edgy Chain Drop Earrings in Gold. A shiny blowout and pale pink lip color provided the finishing touches for Emmy's outfit - love it or lose it, readers? At the panel, Emmy (along with co-stars William H. Macy and Emma Kenney) discussed the show and their characters. According to Variety, Emmy said: "I really fought to play this role. I auditioned four or five times in a wife beater. I think when people tell me no I get a little shameless." Do any of you watch the show?

From there, accessorize with a square black clutch (such as Julie K Handbags' Envie Black Cobra) and a pair of stunning earrings (like Lafonn's Sterling Silver Bonded with Platinum Earrings). What are your thoughts on ER's outfit on this fancy occasion, everyone? While at the event, Emmy chatted with OK! about her top tips for always looking chic, which included: "Contour your makeup. Even if you drank a little too much the night before, it makes you look like you didnít. Drink lots of water, for the same reason. Shape your eyebrows. They create the window for your eyes. They make you look either groomed - or not. I think itís all about shape, really. Just making all the shapes go well." Do you agree with Emmy's chic tips, everyone?

EMERALD OVERLOAD?

Emmy Rossum seen on Mar 18 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Emmy Rossum looked lovely as she attended the release party for Justin Timberlake's new album, "The 20/20 Experience," which was held at the El Rey Theatre in LA on March 18. While Emmy looked beautiful as always, I have to ask... are you into the fact that she matched the green of her dress to her green eye shadow? Do you think it's cute and complementary, or is it emerald overload in your eyes? Outfit wise, Emmy wore a lacy Topshop dress from the high street retailer's Limited Dresses collection, along with white Topshop pumps and a Target clutch. White nailpolish and the aforementioned green eye shadow added a unique beauty twist on Emmy's look. Are you into it, everyone? If you're interested in giving this outfit your own unique spin, try a sophisticated black version of Emmy's Topshop dress. Sue Wong's Rope Lace Sheath Dress in Black/Nude is worth checking out, as is Meghan Los Angeles' Felicity Tunic in Emerald if you're looking for something more casual yet still in the green color scheme. Finish off your 'fit with a black clutch (try Julie K Handbags' Envie Black Cobra and a cool ring (like Avanessi's Halo Ring in Rose Gold. Thoughts?

EMMY'S ODD RUSSIAN EXPERIENCE

Emmy Rossum seen on Jan 29 2013 in Beverly Hills, CA. Emmy Rossum was photographed heading to film an appearance on "Chelsea Lately" on January 29 in Beverly Hills, wearing quite the bold and bright ensemble for her trip to the studio. Starting with a bright coral Vince Camuto sweater (for two options in a similar hue, try Zoa's Pleated Placket Blouse in Coral or Shin Choi's Lynn Knit in Coral), Emmy then wore a pair of dark shades with green heels and a floral Sachin + Babi skirt. There are two similar options to Emmy's fun skirt here on CoutureCandy; take a peek at Three Dots' Print Skirt in Multi and Jenny Han's Button Up Circle Mini Skirt in Soleil. A mint colored Kate Spade bag completed Emmy's casual look. Thoughts, everyone? On the show, Emmy chatted with Chelsea about her time in Russia promoting her new movie Beautiful Creatures, saying: "We were just promoting it in Russia. We stayed in this hotel while we were doing the premiere there for the movie called the Metropol, and so they put me in this old room that looked kind of like "The Shining" and they told me 'this is a very important room for us because Michael Jackson stayed here 20 years ago. So I was like, 'okay cool.' So I'm not thinking anything of it and we go to our premiere and we come back, I'm trying to sleep and I'm jetlagged, and for some reason there's a dry sauna actually in the bathroom in my room. So at night there was like this weird creaking noise literally coming from the bathroom! I was jetlagged and so confused and at the premiere a fan had given me a stuffed plush bear, and I put it on the bed and rolled over on it and it started singing in Russian. Between that and that Michael Jackson had been there 20 years ago and the noises coming out of the steam room, I was a wreck!" Wow, that's quite the story!

BEAUTIFUL IN BORDEAUX

Emmy Rossum seen on Aug 03 2012 in New York, NY. Emma Rossum was spotted leaving the Trump Soho Hotel in NYC on August 3, looking lovely in a casual yet polished ensemble. Classy and chic, Emmy was the epitome of beauty in her bordeaux frock. For a few options in similar colorways as Emmy's dress, take a peek at Jenny Han's 3D Border Tube Dress in Magenta and Luc by Lucy's Frills and Thrills Dress in Burgundy, or for a longer option, try Lotta Stensson's Ruffle Front Tube Dress in Fuchsia - it's perfect for both a sunny summer BBQ or a fun girl's night out. In addition to her dress, Emmy toted a gorgeous Chanel bag and wore a bright bangle, and then slipped into a pair of strappy black sandals (grab Seychelle's Duet Sandal in Black for something similar). What's your take on ER's ensemble here, everyone? In other Emmy news, she recently chatted with MTV News about her newest flick, Beautiful Creatures, a film adaptation of the book series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Says ER: "Everything on this specific set actually moves and actually does the things it says in the script, which in most films would be completely CG. This is all actually happening, so as actors, when we walked on to the stage and realized the chandelier does actually move, the chairs did actually spin, the table did actually spin, there was actually going to a be a hurricane actually happening while we were shooting, it was all very exciting." Sounds very innovative!

EMMY IS ENCHANTING IN EMERALD

Emmy Rossum seen on Sep 17 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Emmy Rossum looked absolutely gorgeous as she attended the LA Operaís White Night Season Opening Gala & Premiere Of "Eugene Onegin" at The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles on September 17. Wowing the photographers in her emerald strapless Johanna Johnson gown, Emmy chose to accessorize with a metallic silver clutch, diamond and emerald necklace, and a pair of silver drop earrings. For a version of Emmy's look that's a tad more casual, pair either Lotta Stensson's Ruffle Front Tube Dress in Aqua Marine or Sky's Wakimak Maxi in Blue with Diane von Furstenberg's Bonnie Foldover Clutch in Silver. From there, make a statement with your choice of jewelry and go bold like Emmy did! Danielle Stevens Jewelry's Crystal Necklace with Jade Green Stones is gorgeous and goes along with the jewel toned color scheme. What are your thoughts on ER's ensemble here, readers? Recently, Emmy was caught by the paparazzi as she headed home, and confessed who she would be voting for on this season of "Dancing with the Stars." I find it hilarious that this seems to be one of the paparazzi's go-to questions! It's either that or "who are you voting for on "American Idol"?" Well, much to the surprise of the paps, Emmy declared that although she hasn't tuned into the dance show recently, she would be this time around and that she would be voting for... wait for it... Nancy Grace! Any of you agree with Emmy?

Emmy Rossum seen on Dec 30 2010 in Las Vegas, NV. Emmy Rossum walked the red carpet prior to the Florence + The Machine performance at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas the day before the New Year's Eve grand opening, December 30. Opting for a nude Bottega Veneta Resort 2011 dress, Emmy then slipped into a painful looking pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos and toted Swarovski's bronze Bel-Air clutch. For an ensemble similar to ER's look, start with a great dress. Ella Moss' Majesty Dress in Nude is similar and has an added dose of sparkle, while Luc by Lucy's Ruched Side Revenge Mini in Black has a similar silhouette with interesting side ruching detail. From there, pick a sassy clutch - like Inge Christopher's Donatella Honey Leather Clutch in Dark Copper - and cool pair of earthen earrings, like Kuo Ting Jewelry's Layered Amethyst and Quartz Earrings in Gold. Are you into Emmy's outfit here, everyone? Regarding Emmy's career, the ingenue is starring in a new Showtime series called "Shameless," of which she says that she "likes that the show will offend some people." Says ER: "People will either love this or be horribly offended, and I think all of those things are good challenges." Are any of you interested in tuning into Emmy's new show?

EMMY'S STAY-COOL SECRET

Emmy Rossum seen on Aug 12 2010 in New York, NY. The beautiful Emmy Rossum made an appearance at the opening night festivities for "Trust," held at the Second Stage Theatre in New York City on August 12. For her NYC ensemble, Emmy paired a patterned tunic dress (for similar options, check out either Single Dress' Cross Over Dress in Purple or their Fringe Sleeve Dress in Black, or Wish's Orion Tunic Dress in Green/Black) with complementary makeup, a bold silver cuff (try Marnie Bugs' Deniz Cuff in Python Silver) and an iridescent purple manicure. For the finishing touch, she slipped into a pair of gorgeous grey cutout heels. What are you feeling about ER's look here - I think it's super cute! While the dress doesn't really flaunt Emmy's killer figure, we know she's got it under there. She was recently spotted out and about in her slinky workout clothes after a session at the gym in NYC, chatting on her cell phone as the photogs snapped away. An interesting side note? She was toting a shopping bag with Popsicles inside! I guess this is her stay-cool summer secret for beating the heat!

EMMY'S HEALTH TIPS

Emmy Rossum seen on Apr 01 2010 in New York, NY. The beautiful Emmy Rossum made an appearance on the red carpet of the opening night of the new Broadway play "Red" that was held at the Golden Theatre in NYC on April 1, striking a few cute poses as the photographers snapped away. For her opening night look, she paired a black and white patterned dress (for two dresses here on CoutureCandy with unique patterns, take a look at Eva Franco's Felicity Dress in Venice Floral and Gold Hawk's Sleeveless Stained Glass Dress in Madagascar) with a questionable pair of black and white heels, and accessorized with a black watch (like TKO Orlogi's Ceramix Ice Watch in Black/Silver) and a decorative silver cuff (check out Lois Hill's Large Tapered Cuff in Silver). Emmy kept her makeup fresh and pretty, with a rosy cheek and berry lip. I really like this look (including her hair and makeup) from the ankles up, I just can't get past those shoes. Not a fan! What do you think, readers? Am I being too hard on her footwear choice? While there's no denying ER's natural beauty, she is speaking out about how she keeps her flawless figure. Her answer isn't really a surprise, as it's pretty much what every actress/model tends to say. But let's take a listen anyways! Says Emmy, "Try to sleep a lot. I know everyone says that, but itís really true. And exercise. It raises your endorphin level and makes you happy. Itís something you can do for yourself to clear your head. Hopefully youíre not looking at your cell phone during your class or when youíre on the treadmill, and you can zone out with your music and relax." I do agree with her on the point about not bringing your cell phone with you when you work out!

BASHING MONTAG

Emmy Rossum seen on Feb 04 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. The adorable Emmy Rossum was spotted smiling for the paps as she made her way through LAX on February 4, pulling along her Louis Vuitton suitcase and donning a tan fedora with a black ribbon. ER kept it casual for the rest of her 'fit, pairing medium wash skinny denim (like Genetic Denim's The Gabrielle Jean in Brighter Day) with a heather grey longsleeve t-shirt (check out similar options in either Raw 7's Long Sleeve Modal Crosswing Shirt in Dark Grey or P.G.D. Style's Basic Lonsleeve Tee in Clay), gold chain shoulder bag (for an extra bit of sparkle, check out Inge Christopher's Armadillo Trapezoid Clutch in Gold), and black ballet flats (like Coye Nokes' Amelia Flat in Black or Gwyneth Shoes' glitzy Maxie Sequin Flat in Black/Silver). What are your thoughts on Emmy's airport ensemble, readers? Do you think she looks beautiful or boring? It seems like so many stars (well, mostly "The Hills" cast mates) are discussing Heidi Montag's shocking plastic surgery, and Emmy posted a message to her official Twitter account about her thoughts on the whole situation. She oh-so-eloquently said, "It upsets me to see young women in the spotlight advocating plastic surgery. ANY surgery is extremely dangerous&should not be taken lightly, much less, used as a tool to increase notoriety or popularity. By putting this on magazine covers, we are somehow legitimizing the dangerous lengths to which some will go for fame and beauty. There are so many REAL ISSUES in this world that NEED attention. Let's try to take a moment to be grateful we are ALIVE." Amen! I totally agree with Emmy, what are your thoughts?

EMMY'S CONSTANTLY CHANGING LOOK

Emmy Rossum seen on Oct 28 2009 in New York, NY. It seems that Emmy Rossum is really starting to come into her own and experiment with different looks on the red carpet, as she appeared at the GQ Gentlemenís Ball 2009 in NYC on October 28 wearing a stunning yet slightly scandalous Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2009 turtle neck dress with mesh cut out detailing. To emulate her look, pick a sexy dress with a hint of sheer detailing, like Gold Hawk's Sheer Overlay Dress in Black or their Sheer Cape Dress in Navy, along with a glitzy clutch like Moyna Handbags' Sequin Clutch in Gold/Pewter. Emmy completed her look with a pair of patent black stilettos, silver square detailed earrings (similar to Jessica Elliot's Diamond Istanbul Earrings in Silver), a rosy pink lip and an aquamarine eye. What are your thoughts on Rossum's look here, readers - does she pull of this edgy style? For those of you besides me who have noticed Emmy's recent rise when it comes to red carpet style, she has commented on her unique sense of personal style to the press. She says, "Itís constantly changing. Iím influenced by a lot of costumes, and sometimes Iíll go to the museum and look at the Grecian draping. It makes me feel really jazzed, and makes me want to wear something like that. Thatís how I kind of feel tonight." Glamorous with a capital G!

DATING ADAM? EMMY

Emmy Rossum seen on Oct 08 2009 in Washington D.C.. The beautiful Emmy Rossum was spotted posing on the purple carpet of the grand opening celebration of the W Hotel in Washington D.C., letting her inner vixen shine through before the photogs. If you are inspired by Emmy's outfit, start with a simple long-sleeved black dress (try Gold Hawk's Drawstring Mini Dress in Black) with a pair of knee high boots (check out Farylrobin's Harlow Knee High Boot in Black) and simple waves with a subtle side part. For her accessories, Rossum chose a python clutch with hoop earrings (try pairing Julie K Handbags' Brit in Gold Python with CC Skye's Lady Hawk Cobra Hoops in Gold) and an oversized cocktail ring (similar to Femme Metale Jewelry's Noble Fleur with Snow Quartz Ring in Silver). What are your thoughts of Emmy's ensemble - do you like? While many of you may not have known that Ms. Rossum was actually a Mrs. Rossum, she has filed for divorce from her music-exec husband Justin Siegel - but it seems like she may have already moved on to a new guy. Rumors claim that Emmy is dating Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz (who has previously been linked to both Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox), however she won't confirm nor deny this allegation. It seems that Adam is singing Emmy's praises though, and has told the press: "She can sing her ass off. But she toured with us onstage, so I knew how she could sing. I sing with her all the time. I actually think she sings better onstage with us... I'd like to make music with her." Of Adam, Emmy says, "I get why chicks dig him. He's extremely kind, incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, creative and respectful. I don't discuss my love life because it's always misinterpreted or put under the microscope. It's especially annoying when you're dating someone else who's well-known, which is why I normally would never go out with a famous guy." Hmm.. but did ER break her self-appointed rule? "Let's put it this way, I'd be flattered if someone hit on me tonight, but I really can't say if I'm available or not," she says. A woman of mystery!
