Emmy Rossum is opening up about the awkward proposal she received while sitting naked in the bathtub.
While appearing on an episode of Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show, “Chelsea”, the “Shameless” star revealed that her fiance, “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail, popped the question in August 2015 while she was sitting under pile of soapy suds.
“I happened to be in the bathtub when it happened,” the actress recalled. “And then I realized that it was happening. And then I got out of the bathtub because I didn’t want the story to be that I was in the bathtub when it was happening. And then I got cold as it was still going on, got back in the bathtub. So, it was a comedy of errors, but it all worked out.”
Rossum went on to say that while she wasn’t always one to dream about this moment as a little girl, she has spent quite some time thinking about marriage in itself. She explained, “I was more excited by the idea of the concept of marriage, and kind of togetherness with the person and unity.”
Rossum and Esmail dated for just under two years before the screenwriter proposed, originally meeting on the set of the romantic comedy, “Comet”, in which Esmail directed and Rossum starred.
