‘Aging without shame’: Gillian on THOSE plastic surgery rumours


Ever since Gillian Anderson returned to our screens to reprise her role as Scully in the X Files, many audience members have speculated that the 47-year-old looks amazing for her age. 

And some reckon she looks too good. 

A recent tabloid article claimed that the actress had had work done to… well every single aspect of her face.

Reports circulated that Gillian had work done to her lips, eyes, cheekbones, neck and basically every other part of her entire face.

But the actress did not take the rumours lying down and took to her Facebook to set the record straight. 

"If it weren't so sad, this bollocks would have made my day."

"This is how I really look! #agingwithoutshame," read the post as the actress shared an image of herself now. 

This is how I really look! #agingwithoutshame

The report comes just months after Gillian opened up to the Edit about appreciating women's work. 

"I like women a lot, and I champion them. I tell people when they are beautiful. I tell other actresses when I think their work is amazing.

"So I think women feel relatively comfortable in my presence. Also, because I'm not perfect, you know?"

She was also quick to speak about her own imperfections. 

"I've got flabby thighs, I'm aging and I'm 5'3. I talk about my failing in contemporary society in terms of gyms or food or whatever. I think there's a polite appreciation that I'm honest."

Well we definitely appreciate you, Gillian.
