"in fact, on graduation night, I was arrested… I had a boyfriend at the time who was a couple centuries older than I was and I’d convinced him that we should go and glue the locks of the school so that people couldn’t get in in the morning. And lo and behold, they had a security guard because it was graduation night and they were concerned that idiots like me might try and do something like that." -Gillian Anderson
Do you turn to each other for career advice?
ANDERSON: There have been defining moments over the past four years where we have, not necessarily for career advice, but when we have both been there for each other for support.
Examples? We love examples.
ANDERSON: Well, I won’t give any.

HOLY CRAP IT’S THE SIMS IN REAL LIFE
NOT THAT I WOULD KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT AT ALL
as if this day were not enough for me
In important news today: Gillian Anderson has come out as bisexual and appeared in Out magazine with this photo.
From her blog:I chose during that interview to discuss the fact that, earlier in my life, I had been in relationship with a woman. It was the first time I revealed this fact in a public forum, and I chose to do so for two reasons. One was that a woman whom I was in relationship with had died a few months beforehand and I felt, in the context of our conversation, it was safe and appropriate to bring it up. Many years beforehand, and well beyond our time together, this woman had called me out of the blue at the height of my television fame to say that she had been offered $60,000 by a tabloid to provide a picture of us together. At the time, for various reasons, not including shame, I did not want that information in the public domain and despite the fact that she was struggling to pay her rent, I asked her not to sell our story. She took what at the time I considered to be the high road. To this day I regret asking her to do that. That 60 grand would have had a greater positive effect on her life than a negative effect on mine. By discussing our relationship in Out, I felt like I was honoring her memory in some way simply by admitting its existence.
