Emmy Rossum took on the role of Dominatrix for her photoshoot with Complex magazine. She talked to PEOPLE about her sexy and revealing photoshoot on Jan. 24.

Rossum attended the PEOPLE at Elle's Women in Television Celebration in L.A. She told the magazine, "I was like, 'What is going on right now? [The photographer] was like, 'Pose in this dominatrix gear with these huge machines!' and I was like, 'Oh God! This isn't me at all!"

Rossum revealed that she had to channel her "inner goddess" for the photoshoot. She thanked E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" for getting her through the shoot.

The actress joked, "I think you just have to channel a character. You just have to use it as an exciting exercise and channel your '50 Shades of Grey'."

Rossum said she got it over it so she could leave. She obviously felt uncomfortable with the shoot, but she knew the photos would come out good.

Emmy Rossum doesn't want to do a similar photoshoot anytime soon. She says that her personal style is more modern, but feminine. She likes to have fun with fashion and not take it so seriously.
