Gillian Anderson Comes Out As Bisexual

In the pages of this month’s Out Magazine, Gillian Anderson reflects on her life thus far — and the relationships that have formed along the way. With some hesitation, it seemed, she revealed that one of her past loves was with a woman. posted on

In this month’s edition of OUT, 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.”

She continued,

“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.”

Immediately my mind goes to the die-hard “X-Files” fans. Does this take away from the years and years of “X-Files” fanfic that revolved around a Mulder/Scully relationship — or does it just spice things up enough for a whole new slew of fic?

You go, girl.
