The 27-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about relationships and her hit show Shameless. Check it:
On guys confusing her with her with her character Fiona: “I feel like on the first date with a guy he’ll think I’m easy (like Fiona), and that’s so disconcerting. It’s not like I haven’t had sex on the first date, but usually that ended up in a two year relationship. I don’t gravitate to the jock; it’s the nerdy guy in the corner. I’m dating a writer now [Sam Esmail, the writer-director of her film Comet]. Writers are sexy.”
On texting with guys: “I once found a guy I was dating dirty-texting another woman and I completely lost my shit. Texting is so dangerous! I won’t even give guys my number, because I know me. We’ll start texting and he’ll start emoticon-ing and I’ll start emoticon-ing, and soon we have a big mess. I’m a very flirty person in general.”
On whether she’d get married again: “I hope I do. Honestly, I was so young, I don’t think I knew what marriage meant. My parents were never married, and I was teased in school and called a bastard. So the idea of marriage as safety forever was idealized in my head, and we rushed into it.”
