Emmy Rossum gets naked in HD for 'Shameless'

emmy-rossum-shameless-showtime.jpgIn the upcoming Showtime series "Shameless," Emmy Rossum stars as an 18-year-old who has to fend for herself and her five siblings because her father ( William H. Macy) is a drunk and her mother is M.I.A. The series is a remake of the British show of the same name,

It's Rossum's first time as a regular on a television series -- and it'll also mark another first for her. "It is my first time being naked on screen," she tells RadarOnline. "It is definitely a little stressful, but I think you just gotta rock whatever God gave you, and be proud of it."

The video of her nude scene from the pilot has leaked online, but Rossumisn't too worried about the grainy YouTube vids - she's more stressed about the scene airing in high definition. She admits that "naked in HD" takes the anxiety up a notch. "Hope for good lighting!" she laughs.

The series begins production at the end of the summer.
