We Love That Emmy Rossum Directed & Acted In a ‘Shameless' Episode Wearing Only a Towel

Emmy Rossum proved she's the queen of multitasking when she took on the roles of both director and actor in an upcoming episode of the hit show Shameless. Did we mention she did it wearing nothing but a towel?

Yesterday, the actress took to Instagram and posted a photo of herself sitting in a director’s chair on set. She wore a barely-there towel wrapped around her petite frame and captioned the post, “When you're directing but also in a towel in the scene.”

This isn't the first time Rossum acted and directed an episode of the popular Showtime series, but as she disrobed disclosed, it was the first time she faced a wardrobe challenge. Rossum made her directorial debut in 2016 when she helmed season seven, episode four, “I Am a Storm.”

Shameless season eight returns to Showtime on Sunday, November 5. Until then, keep breaking down those Hollywood barriers, shower scene at a time.
