Gillian Anderson is yet to give up on love and is seeking the man who will be “brave enough” to ask her on a date.
The 46-year-old actress shares that she embraces the thought of having a man in her life again although she is happy being on her own. She reveals that even though she has been married twice – to The X-Files series assistant and art director Clyde Klotz in 1994, and to documentary filmmaker Julian Ozanne in 2006 – she almost always had to take the lead on the relationships.
‘I’m so lucky to have such great work. I’ve got a fantastic life, I have a wonderful relationship with my kids, and there’s nothing lacking, but I’m leaning towards the idea that it’s time for somebody to be brave enough to ask me out,” Anderson said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.
“I’ve asked out guys in the past. I remember being in the cinema in the States and I made eye contact with a man going in. I noticed we laughed at same points and seemed to respond in the same way to the same moments. We were both with friends, but he caught up with me as we were filing out. Halfway, I stopped and thought ‘What am I doing?’ So I rushed back down the street, went up to him and said ‘Would you like a coffee sometime?’ We dated for six months,” Anderson recounted.
The The X-Files star enumerates her rules in dating, which excludes married men and toy boys. The idea of another same sex relationship is definitely welcomed as long as it’s “The One”.
“I believe at this stage of my life, it’s better not to manipulate the situation. If it happens, it happens. What I am sure about is that I want my next relationship to be ‘The One,’” she said.
