Emmy Rossum is truly transforming for her new role.
In images from Angelyne, the Shameless star appears wildly different, with Rossum playing the mysterious Los Angeles billboard queen of the same name.
Before reality stars like Kim Kardashian, Angelyne became famous by starting a glamorous ad campaign with only her name and image.
Rossum''s impressive transformation into the blond bombshell was not just successful without its potential.
While spending up to five hours a day in makeup, the actress dwindling, revealing her tone, blonde wig, bleached brows, and prosthetic breasts.
The star who welcomed a daughter last year said she found the experience of changing into a character that looks nothing like herself completely liberating.
Even Rossums husband Sam Esmail, who is executive producer on the project, said it was kind of unsettling how much his wife became Angelyne.
When I say that there are times when I didn''t recognize her because she was disgruntled in this person, I really mean it, according to Esmail. This is my wife I''m talking about.
Rossum tapped into Angelynes'' mindset and even bought her meditation tapes on eBay as well as the physical changes.
Rossum said of the billboard model, saying things that are profoundly resonant and profound about identity. How to find yourself out of pain, out of sorrow, out of sadness
