Emmy Rossum is a good friend.

According to Page Six, the 29-year-old actress blew into New York City to lend a helping hand to her childhood friend Dorie Golkin Smith.

Emmy Rossum's friend is co-owner of new Flatiron clothing shop Of Mercer and Rossum made a quick trip to the big city to help her friend get ready for her store’s opening last week.

“[Emmy] painted the walls of the store — the doors — everything that needed finishing,” said a source. “She went methodically through each letter on the sign with a Q-tip to make sure it was neat.”

According to Page Six, the Shameless actress was in NYC for barely 24 hours before heading back to shoot the Showtime series.

It must have been a balm for Rossum's broken heart to spend some time with her childhood friend.

When celebrity make-up artist Jake Bailey reportedly took his own life last week, Emmy Rossum posted a heartfelt message about her friend, revealing that she had recently spent time with Bailey.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Bailey worked with celebrities including Lea Michele, Christina Aguilera, Angelina Jolie, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Katy Perry and, most recently, Selena Gomez.
