50 Girlcrushes of 2013: Gillian Anderson
It’s hard to believe it’s been twenty years since Gillian Anderson first came into my life. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been yelling “SCULLLLLY” for twenty years in public places and I haven’t gotten arrested yet. Even harder to believe is that Gillian Anderson seems to be getting more attractive as the years role on. Is she de-aging? Is she a Time Lord? I think I’d like to open an X-File on this subject. Dana Scully is still one of the best characters to ever happen to television and certainly one of the best to happen to my life. This year, Gillian came back to television in America as Dr. Lecter’s psychiatrist and I still don’t quite know what to make of her. We should be suspicious of anyone Hannibal calls a friends. She was also dealing with a creepy serial killer and trying to capture him in the U.K. import The Fall. Gillian Anderson in law enforcement makes for perfect television. If only we can have one more X-Files movie, my heart would be content.
we all know this is the only real picture that matters tonight
