Gillian Anderson appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden this Tuesday to talk about raising her sons, receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and her recent work with Kate McKinnon on "The Spy Who Dumped Me." You can watch the full show or at least the parts that weren't bleeped out, on the CBS Website.
After the episode broadcast, Gillian tweeted to Kate McKinnon, reciprocating the girl crush.
Mark your calendars, fans have a new holiday to celebrate! The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce declared January 8th "Gillian Anderson Day" in Hollywood after she received her star on the Walk of Fame, but there's no reason why that shouldn't be celebrated worldwide. Fans gathered from around the world to attend the ceremony and to celebrate Gillian Anderson's many accomplishments on screen and off. Bryan Fuller and Joel McHale were the featured speakers. Chris Carter was supposed to be speaking as well, but was unable to attend due to a threat of mudslides near his home. For all the details, check out our recap below. If you caught the ceremony online and just want more pictures, we’ve got you covered there too with our photo gallery.
"Thank you to the city of Hollywood and to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for this incredible honor. And thank you to Bryan, and Joel, and David for your kind words.
I first moved to Los Angeles 25 years ago to become a film actress. But then I had the great good fortune of landing in Chris Carter’s television universe and the shoes of Dana Katherine Scully. A woman who wasn’t just the object of a man’s desire, but a strong-willed, smart, brave woman who was career-driven and fiercely independent. The combination of Chris’ creation and whatever rookie, naïve, terrified, determined will I brought to the table manifested a young woman yet to be depicted on TV. And as the fan response would soon prove, a desperately needed role model for women of all ages, everywhere, who it turns out were simply not seeing themselves represented.
Gillian Anderson's busy weekend in Los Angeles continued as she attended the Golden Globe Awards. In a post to her Instagram story, Gillian explained why she chose to wear black: "To stand in solidarity with women and men everywhere who have been silenced by discrimination, harassment or abuse. Wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever you're doing. Join us. #TimesUp." If you're not familiar with the Time's Up Movement that Gillian has been speaking about, read more here.
