"The truth IS out there"… and after a 17-year wait we've finally
found it. Gillian Anderson is a lesbian! Well, kinda. As DIVA
reported last week, our fave 90s sci-fi crush has admitted to
having relationships with girls in the past.
Now that I think about it, I do now seem to remember her X-Files
days being sprinkled with a few "is she, isn't shes". Personally,
she holds a special place in my heart (along with Susan from ER) as
one of my first ever crushes. It got me thinking, she would be a
pretty handy girlfriend to have. So these are my top ten Gillian
Anderson date ideas:
Tea and cake at the White House. I mean, with
her highly-respected scientific skills, she must be well in there
with Barrack, probably even in his top-ten Facebook friends. You
might even get some inside info on the latest top-secret government
op while you're at it.
A free trip to the moon on the first ever space
tourist shuttle, because Gillian has had a bit of a re-think and
has decided that there might be life up there after all. Naturally
the government want to get her up there to investigate right
A trip to the set of another sci-fi classic,
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, where hopefully we'll locate
their time machine and pop back to Gillian's pre-marriage-and-kids-
more-gay-days, where she will totally fall in love with us.
A day out at Area 51 in Roswell, New Mexico,
the ultimate pilgrimage for any paranormal fan. With Gillian as
your guide you're guaranteed to have access to all the cordoned-off
"No access" areas, where, naturally you will find a whole community
of giant-headed, tiny-bodied green aliens that the government were
trying to keep secret from us.
The annual X-Files Convention. Imagine how cool
you'd feel as the army of X-Files, t-shirt-clad fans part to
welcome their God, with you hand-in-hand by her side. You might
even get your feet kissed.
A midnight picnic at an alien abduction
hot-spot, found through Gillian's specialist knowledge, in the hope
that you will get abducted, so that you can have the title of best
pub story out of your mates for ever more.
A tour of the FBI headquarters. Well, that
would just be cool. And it would be kinda hot to see her bossing
the country's most powerful people around.
Have a cosy night in with the X-Files box-set
just to remind you that you are dating a celebrity.
A fancy dress party where you go dressed as
Mulder and Scully, but you're Scully and she's Mulder, to mix
things up a bit and freak out your friends.
Stroll through the London borough where she
spent her early years, and have her tell you all her bad-girl
stories of her youth, like the time she was arrested…
