Rossum ‘mortified’ by doctor run-in

Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum was “mortified” after asking a familiar looking man how she knew him.

The 27-year-old Shameless star was left scratching her head when she ran into a man Tuesday but couldn’t place his face.

She took to Twitter shortly after revealing she was horrified when she found out who he was.

“Just had the most AWKWARD moment. Saw a man I recognized but couldn’t figure out HOW I knew him. He was SO familiar but I couldn’t place him,” Emmy shared. “So finally I leaned over and said, Excuse me but you look so familiar. Do I know you? He said, Hi Emmy. It’s Dr Katz. I’m your gynocologist” (sic).

The actress was dumbfounded by the response.

She pleaded with her followers to share an embarrassing mishap to make her feel a little less ridiculous.

“Horrifying. Mortifying. Has that or anything like that happened to any of you??,” she asked. “Come on, tell me it has. Make me feel less like an idiot.”

It’s not the first mortifying moment the star has shared with the public.

Earlier this year, the actress admitted people must think she’s “crazy” because she often rehearses her lines on the go.

“I’ll be walking down the street saying words, practicing, and people think I’m crazy,” she mused in an interview with the New York Post.

“So when I see people talking to themselves, I never know if they’re schizophrenics or actors.”
