Emmy Rossum never imagined she had a shot at playing Phantom of the Opera's heroine Christine, being "the youngest and least famous of anybody" up for it. But since nailing her audition in Andrew Lloyd Webber's living room, the 18-year-old New Yorker has been building buzz, costarring in the Jake Gyllenhaal blockbuster The Day After Tomorrow last year, and now competing for a Golden Globe. Rossum recently talked about getting her foot in the door in Hollywood, dealing with fame and still getting turned away from nightclubs.
