Emmy Rossum Shares What She ‘Actually Weighs’ On Instagram With An Important Message For Her Fans ❤️

Emmy Rossum added her name to the new Instagram “I Weigh” campaign to get women to stop focusing on the number on the scale and start focusing on more weighty matters.

On Wednesday, the Shameless actress posed the question to her Instagram followers, “Want to know what I weigh?”

The post then led people to @i_weigh, where the movement encourages women to have self-confidence and to not feel encumbered by societal pressures to maintain a certain size.

Click on my stories. @i_weigh BECAUSE YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN A NUMBER.

Once followers reached the @i_weigh page they were greeted with hundreds of posts just like Rossum’s.

Thank you @emmy

Rossum wasn’t the only one flaunting her worth; her co-star and “kid-sister” Emma Kenney also participated in the event.

Thank you @emmakenney 🙌🏻 #iweigh #fuckingkg
