I don't know how much of a shocker it is to learn that Gillian Anderson is essentially bisexual, as discussed in the latest issue of Out magazine. Most of us who have followed her and her career for these last 20 years were probably aware of her somewhat adventuresome lifestyle before, during and after her gig as Scully on The X-Files. She might have been kind of a prude on that show, but it was always pretty clear that her part didn't carry over into her personal life. Still, it's kind of interesting to hear her tell of her vacations on the isle of Lesbos. Quoting the Out article:
“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 who...”
Wait, a lesbian relationship?
“Yeah, yeah, well it’s... You know, I’m old enough that I can talk about that,” she says, before resuming her list: “And then I was in a relationship with somebody who was way, way older than me. Everything that that kind of anarchistic attitude brings—the inappropriate behavior it leads to—was how I chose to be in the world at that time, which was, you know, not what people did.”
Hmmm, so Gillian's life is where all those fantasies about the horny high school girl getting with her friends and older men comes from. I always thought that was just the stuff of cheesy porn plots, but apparently Scully was living the dream. Nice.
