The 31-year-old is spreading body positivity by opening up about her weight. She tagged the "I Weigh" movement which promotes self love and was started by actress Jameela Jamil. She wrote in the post's caption, "BECAUSE YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN A NUMBER" and asked followers if they wanted to know her weight.
Emmy told fans in her Instagram Story, "During my life the scale has told me that I have gained and lost and gained and lost."
She continued, "Somewhere in the range of 20 pounds. But that piece of metal doesn’t really know. Here’s what I ACTUALLY WEIGH.”

The next post showed the Day After Tomorrow actress strong and powerful posing in a gym selfie with words scrawled over her.
"3 best friends since kindergarten, drive, kindness, empathy, makes friends with strangers, Jewish and proud, Daughter, 100+ hours of television," she proclaimed. Her point was that she "weighs" herself in all those things rather than just a number on a metal scale. She encouraged fans to send posts "weighing" themselves.
