Emmy Rossum Said William H. Macy Was A Big Ally When Fighting For Equal Pay

Despite the fact that both actors had the same billing as leads on Shameless, Macy reportedly made more money than his female co-star had in the show’s previous seven seasons. During contract discussions for Season 8, Rossum asked Showtime that she be compensated more than Macy to make up for the years she was paid less than him, according to Variety.
