Gillian Anderson Reveals Past Lesbian Relationships In 'Out'

The truth is out there and 'X-Files' star Gillian Anderson is sharing it.

In the latest issue of 'Out' magazine, Anderson reveals she had several romantic relationships with women in her younger days.

"I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school," says the 43-year-old actress. "Yeah, you know, I'm old enough that I can talk about that."

She notes her early relationships included a "punk drug addict" and "somebody who was way, way older than me."

"Everything that kind of anarchistic attitude brings, the inappropriate behavior it leads to, was how I chose to be in the world at that time, which was, you know, not what people did."

"If I had thought I was 100 percent gay, would it have been a different experience for me?," she wonders. "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."

The twice-divorced star of the upcoming BBC adaptation of 'Great Expectations' has a 17-year-old daughter with her first husband and two young sons with current partner Mark Griffiths.
