Gillian Anderson just made “X-Files” fans cream their pants yet again: the actress told Out Magazine that she had a relationship with a girl throughout high school! But she is more comfortable calling herself a bisexual, or perhaps using no label, because her subsequent relationships have been with dudes. She also says because she knew she was attracted to men, so she didn’t feel especially stigmatized. “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?” Anderson said. ”It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.” She also added in Out, “I don’t think I’ve ever followed convention by choice. By default, maybe, but not by choice.” Call yourself whatever you want, Gillian — we are girl-crushing so hard. [New York Post, Out]
Gillian Anderson isn’t the first lady to confess to a lesbian affair. After the jump, meet seven more ladies with Sapphic inclinations.
“Undoubtedly, it will happen at some point. But I just don’t want the fact of it to change how things are. Things are fantastic the way that they are. And I’m slightly worried that there’s something in me that … it all feels fine. I’ve already done it. I just don’t want to screw things up. Things are great just as they are. But I probably will at some point.”

David Duchovny, aka Mulder, and Gillian Anderson, aka Scully, were both looking hot and cool at WonderCon, the comic convention in San Francisco, yesterday. They reunited to talk about the highly-anticipated, better-late-than-never, X-Files film. Although maybe it was a little TMI, since Gillian Anderson admitted to wishing they would get an â€œauto-erotic asphyxiationâ€ plot line — like attending a sci-fi convention wasnâ€™t fetishy enough. In addition to the usual suspects, the film, set to be released in July, will also feature rapper Xzibit and actress Amanda Peet. While they didnâ€™t reveal much about the script, writer Chris Carter promises, “It will scare the pants off you. And you’ll get to see Mulder and Scully in a whole new way.” Well, after Duchovnyâ€™s hit sexy series Californication, Showtime has already beaten the X-Files movie to the naked punch (no pun intended). But thereâ€™s at least one mystery left to solve: David Duchovny, why wonâ€™t you love me? [Geek Sugar] Keep reading »
