So, Gillian Anderson has gone for a couple of swims in the lady pond. Very interesting.
In this month’s issue of OUT magazine, Anderson detailed some of the relationships she’s had in her life, including one with a woman:
“I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school, and then I was in a relationship with a punk rock drug addict. … Yeah, yeah, well it’s… You know, I’m old enough that I can talk about that.
If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me?Would it have been a bigger deal if shame had been attached to it and all those things that become huge life-altering issues for youngsters in that situation? It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”
Gillian – who has two sons, Oscar, five, and three-year-old Felix, with partner Mark Griffiths as well as 17-year-old daughter Piper from her marriage to Clyde Klotz – said: ”Going from London to a small Republican town like Grand Rapids was quite a shock. I thought it would be a place of sunshine and happiness and candy bars.
