Talk about an uncomfortable encounter! Shameless star Emmy Rossum is feeling a little, well, shameful after she had an unfortunate run-in with her OBGYN on Tuesday, Oct. 1. The 27-year-old actress relived her humiliation by sharing the story with her Twitter followers.

"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," she tweeted. "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."

Rossum called the exchange "horrifying" and "mortifying" in a separate tweet.  "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."

Perhaps the actress' Shameless character would have handled the situation differently. "Fiona is very sexually liberated," Rossum told Manhattan magazine in January. "She's also a loudmouth, and there's safety in that."
