In a recent interview with Out magazine, Gillian Anderson disclosed that she had intimate relationships with women. She started rebelling and having bi-sexual relations after moving from England to America. She said she indulged in other relationships that seemed mostly designed to shock people.

Her dabbling includes a long-term relationship with another female while she was in high school. She went on to explain that she wasn’t a conformist as a kid: Her high school class voted her “Most Bizarre” and “Most Likely to Be Arrested.”


Anderson says she has had more relationships with men than women and told Out, “If I had thought I was 100 percent 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.”

Anderson has been divorced twice and has a 17-year-old daughter from her first marriage to producer Julian Ozanne. She has two young sons with her current partner.


People tweeted about her bi-sexual tendencies:

    “Anderson has been divorced twice and has a 17-year-old daughter from her first marriage to producer Julian Ozanne”

    This info is wrong. She had her daughter Piper with her first hubby Clyde Klotz, not Julian Ozanna. How do I know this? Well, I was a huge X Files fanatic and followed Anderson’s life and caree closely.

    I just adore Gillian Anderson. She is such a great actress, I would say one of the best. Disclosing this info can help younger people cope with their identity and others not to be judgmental and cruel. Your great Gillian!

    I dont care. I truly Love her and support her. I wish everyone would see her like I do.

    I don’t understand the hoopla. I mean how much do we even know about Gilly. People are acting like they know everything about her and they don’t.
    Katy Perry kissed a girl and she liked and now we know Gillian Anderson did too.

    I hope when her next movie or tv rolls debuted that this much attention is given towards it.

    It would never make a difference regarding her persona. It´s very usual for young people to explore different approches of sexuality. If she wanted to make it public speaks volumes about her open mind and courage. Bravo Gillian sei una grande!!!! Ti amo da impazzire!!!
