It's no secret that Emmy Rossum isn't afraid to bare her bod on the small screen for her hit TV series Shameless

The 28-year-old beauty has previously told E! News that "being naked in character is very easy because it's just playing pretend. You're someone else. You don't feel like yourself"—and she echoed those same sentiments on E! News when she stopped by the studio on Thursday (tune in tonight to watch the full interview!), hilariously proclaiming, "They're just boobs!" when asked about being naked on the boob tube (pun intended). 

Still, there's no denying that Emmy, who looked stunning in an Elie Saab dress and adorable Christian Louboutin flats during her chat, always looks amazing on screen, but is it tough trying to stay in shape during the holiday season while simultaneously filming the hit Showtime series?!

"I read somewhere that Cindy Crawford, who I think is so beautiful, said 'Be 80 percent good 80 percent of the time'. So I think that's kind of the motto, life is too short not to eat the cookie and not eat the cake but at the same time health is super-important too," she said.

The Phantom of the Opera star, who also previously admitted that she's never worried about squeezing in a workout before shooting a racy scene, adding that health is an important part of her life (but she also knows when to indulge!).

"I know that when I eat poorly my performance at work is not as good, so I try to be healthy," she shared before adding with a smile, "But during the holiday season, you need to go easy on yourself a little bit." 

When she's not busy shooting Shameless (which returns to TV on January 11, 2015), Rossum has been busy promoting her forthcoming film Comet, which co-stars Justin Long and hits theaters tomorrow.

During her studio chat, she revealed how she handpicked Long for the role (for the full scoop, watch the interview tonight!) and even proudly boasted how she has a "producer credit." 

So, what can viewers except to see from the film, which centers on a couple's love story set in a parallel universe? 

"It's this clash of these two personalities basically," Rossum dished. "They meet during a meteor shower at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and he's (Long) kind of a jaded, doesn't believe in love, a little bit narcissistic…and she (Rossum) is this kind of idealist, believes in love, so they agree to date to prove each other wrong. And then the rest of the film kind of jumps back and forth in time, a la 500 Days of Summer…as they break up and make up as it unfolds, and it's strange and fun."
