Gillian Anderson: About That Time My Daughter Tried to 'Warn' Me About an Impending Fashion Disaster

Originally posted 01/26/2016 09:55AM

When Gillian Anderson was running late to attend a recent theater event, she thought she could just throw something on. But "it did not photograph well," she tells PEOPLE in the latest issue.

Having done a photo shoot earlier in the day, for which her hair was styled with wax for a '90s look, Anderson had planned to just wear the same hairstyle for her event that night.

"It was really greasy," says the X-Files star, 47. "It looked great but if you try and wear that in your real life then it looks like you have not washed your hair for a year and a half."

Gillian Anderson Talks Scully and Mulder's Estranged Relationship: That 'Tension' Always Drove The X-Files

Originally posted 01/24/2016 06:25PM

The truth about Dana Scully and Fox Mulder's relationship is out there – but viewers will have to wait until the X-Files miniseries premieres Sunday night to find out what's driven a wedge between the FBI's spooky duo.

It took seven seasons and two movies for Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's characters to move beyond a platonic partnership. When the new show picks up, Scully and Mulder aren't together anymore, though their chemistry crackles as hot as ever.

"In the first episode, they're no longer a couple. They're living apart. They have not had that much contact with each other," Anderson, 47, tells PEOPLE. "Obviously there is a child between them, and so they're always going to be connected in that way. But it feels a little estranged at the very beginning, which is kind of how it always was. It was this tension between the two of them which is part of what worked with the series and which drove the series, so it's actually an interesting way I think for us to begin again."

The truth – about sexism in Hollywood – is out there.
