'Shameless' Star Emmy Rossum on Fake Peeing on Camera: 'It Was Very Awkward'

The actress says having to fake pee for a drug test on the Showtime show was among her oddest days at work.

"I had to pull my pants down and there was this squeezy contraption that I had to look like I was reaching behind me to pee because they wanted me to pee but obviously I wasn't peeing on camera," says Rossum. "My character does a lot of drug tests peeing so it was very awkward."
