People Are Not Happy With The Daily Mail Shaming Gillian Anderson Over Her Looks

And now they’re using #GillianAndersonIsBeautiful by way of a response.

So, assuming you’ve seen the new series of The X Files, you’ll have noticed that BOTH Mulder and Scully are still hot.

 

But of course, the tabloids only care about the fact one of these people is still hot.

And so (sigh), last night actor Gillian Anderson shared this Daily Mail story that asked whether or not she has had Botox.

A story she described using the much-loved British epithet “bollocks”.

Fairly soon, people were expressing their anger over the article.

And now they’re using the hashtag #GillianAndersonIsBeautiful to make a point.

Good morning! #GillianAndersonIsBeautiful 👊

Clearly someone at @DailyMailUK needs a lesson on #WomenSupportingWomen from @GillianA #GillianAndersonIsBeautiful

Anderson is also the star of The Fall (which, if you’ve not seen it, is completely terrifying). It’s set to return for a third series.

Jamie Dornan, sweetest man alive, just wrapped season 3 of @TheFallTV. You'll never meet a nicer serial killer.
