Gillian Anderson doesn't care if her 'breasts reach her belly button' Wed, 14 Jul 2021 10:00:00 +0100-The Crown star Gillian Anderson, 52, joked that she would go braless and wear trackpants and a hoodie every day if she could and she was applauded by fans …
Gillian Anderson has ditched “uncomfortable” bras and has vowed she’ll never wear one again.
The Crown star, 52, adopted a more casual sense of style during the Covid-19 lockdown, and joked she’s now much happier when she’s braless and dressed down.
During an Instagram Live Q&A session on Monday, Gillian confessed that she is “too lazy” to wear a bra after she was asked by one follower about her favourite outfit.
“It's probably the same one as my out of lockdown outfit. I mean, I've gotten so lazy and I don't wear a bra any more. I can't wear a bra. I can't, no, I can't. I'm sorry,” The X-Files star laughed.
Gillian, who is mum to three children – Piper, 26, Oscar, 14, and Felix, 12 – poked fun at herself as she claimed her figure wasn’t what it used to be.
“I don't care if my breasts reach my belly button, I'm not wearing a bra any more. It's just too f***ing uncomfortable.
“So yeah, comfortable black track pants and a matching hoodie. I'd wear that every day if I could,” Gillian added.
Her comments struck a chord with her fans, who took to social media to heap praise on her no-nonsense approach.
“If two time Golden Globe and Emmy winning actress Gillian Anderson says no more bras who are we to disagree,” one wrote on Twitter.
Gillian’s body confidence has been years in the making, and she previously revealed that she used to suffer from a serious lack of self-confidence.
However, after therapy and taking up meditation, the award-winning actress refuses to allow herself to think badly about her body.
“I will not go there. I simply will not allow it any more. Because the things that we might be critical of ourselves about actually don’t matter.
“The only thing that really matters in terms of our peace of mind is our peace of mind itself, and how we react to things,” she told the Guardian in 2017.
She also touched upon the sexist approach to women ageing in Hollywood, and said one day, she’ll ditch the blonde hair and embrace going grey.
“There will be a certain point where I’ll make the decision to go grey, you know. There might be a certain point where I decide that it’s silly for me to continue being blond when I’m in my 60s,” Gillian explained.
The actress, who was born in Chicago but raised in London, recently delighted X-Files fans by reuniting with former co-star David Duchovny.
The duo shot to worldwide superstardom in the hit 1990s sci-fi show as FBI Special Agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, and Gillian shared a snap of the two smiling for the camera, as she introduced her old friend to her dog.
“Stella made a new friend today. @davidduchovny,” she captioned the post in April.
