Emmy Rossum: I'm so fit

Emmy Rossum is in the “best shape” ever.

The 26-year-old star openly admitted that she is super fit these days. Emmy has worked hard to get her dream body and so is unapologetic about her confidence.

"Right now I'm probably in the best shape that I've ever been in, although I don't consider 'best shape' to necessarily mean the skinniest,” Emmy confessed to Self magazine. “I've been fatter and I've been skinnier than I am right now, but I'm more at peace than ever."

The star is busy at the moment thanks to her role in Showtime’s drama series Shameless, her new movie Beautiful Creatures and with an album in the pipeline. It means she is getting increasing numbers of red carpet invites, so Emmy has shared her secrets on dressing for such events.

“When I want to drop weight quickly, I cut back on my cardio and do a lot of weights instead. It’s counterintuitive, because you would think, I should stay on the treadmill for five hours,” she explained. “I also cut out all fruit and eat a lot of protein and vegetables. My go-to moves are walking lunges, leg raises and my favourite: four sets of 15 ballet pliés, holding eight pound weights.”

When she’s not working out hard to get toned for a high profile appearance, Emmy is more realistic about her looks. She tries to remember that everyone is different and she’ll never be able to compete with supermodels.

"I'm not going to wake up like Gisele [Bündchen] tomorrow. That's just not going to happen. She's a genetic freak - and stunning. I'm a human being,” Emmy laughed. “I'm fit because I make it a priority and it's part of my job. I also try to stay confident, so five pounds up or down doesn't affect my brain."
