We know how devoted fans of Gillian Anderson and The X Files are. So if any of you noticed something strange about photos of the actress at last month’s London Evening Standard Theater Awards, where she won Best Actress for her turn as Blanche Dubois in A Streetcar Named Desire, Anderson has the explanation:
“My dress [by British couturier Nicholas Oakwell] was too big and I had to hold it up with my armpits all night. Hence all the pictures of me looking quite grumpy.”
This delightful quote is but one of many to be savored in a write-up by Evening Standard senior feature writer Nick Curtis. Anderson, having sat the night of the awards at a heavyweight table that also featured Benedict Cumberbatch, has since made plans to see The Imitation Game star’s forthcoming Hamlet.
