Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actress Emmy Rossum has revealed that she was asked to meet a filmmaker wearing just a bikini to prove she has not got "fat".

The actress said she was stunned to learn the condition that would see her offered a major movie role, reported Femalefirst.

"Even as recently as a year ago, my agent called me and was like, 'I'm so embarrassed to make this call, but there's a big movie and they're going to offer it to you. They really love your work on the show. But the director wants you to come into his office in a bikini. There's no audition. That's all you have to do.'," Rossum said.

"He wanted to know if I was fat now. That was basically the question. And I actually had this moment like, 'Well, how good is the part?' For a second, I was like, 'Would I do it? Send me the script. Maybe the character is in a bikini in the movie.'," she added.
