Gillian Anderson Quotes

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Belief

My whole belief system is that our paths are drawn for us. I believe in reincarnation. I believe we’re here to learn and grow. We choose how we come into this life based on what it is we have to learn. Some people have harder lessons than others.

Unfortunately, the belief that women are a minority is endemic in most cultures around the world. Obviously some take it to the extreme where violence against women is legal and supported and in other cultures it is more subversive and easy to dismiss as “progress.”

People have been willing

People have been willing to accept that the government is lying to us, but they are now more willing to accept the concept of aliens and other life forms. There’s just a slew of stuff out there right now. It’s been people’s closet belief system, and now it’s coming out of the closet.

Right now the topic of female empowerment is at the forefront of conversation and it’s important we take advantage of the trend while there is added pressure to adjust long-standing beliefs, prejudices, and cultural discrimination.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Caracter

I am more spontaneous than my character.

Every now and then we’d meet up and reminisce about the characters. At the beginning, shortly after we started shooting, someone sent me some clips put together on youtube. It was the first time I’d seen something like that. “The intimate moments of Mulder and Scully.”

Sometimes having a big amount of time is a gift, because by the time you’re at the end of the run you feel like you’ve figured it out finally or discovered everything you can about the character. Sometimes that’s not the case.

When I’m inside the character, I feel like I’m a different person, and then when you see that character on screen and I see that it’s me, I find that disappointing.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Children

I love it when women come up to me and tell me I’m a positive influence on their lives and the lives of their young daughters. That’s a great feeling.

I was a good liar as a child.

In my case, I was born to parents who were very young, and I don’t think they were entirely ready to have a child. My dad was going to college and working two or three jobs at the same time, and my mum was working and going to school.

By moving to London I removed myself from the madness of the entertainment industry. I love the city and the culture, and it was an opportunity to bring my children up in a more sane environment.

I simply cannot fathom the horrors of being enslaved, and the thought that children are ripped apart from their families and used year in and out for sex and hard labor under the threat of violence and death breaks my heart.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Feelings

Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.

I love it when women come up to me and tell me I’m a positive influence on their lives and the lives of their young daughters. That’s a great feeling.

It is not a matter of being fearless. The fear is sometimes constant, but it’s about moving forward regardless of the fear. Courage means feeling the fear and doing it anyway.

I always felt I wasn’t completely American and I wasn’t completely British: there was a feeling of having my feet in both places.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Lying

I truly believe that we can overcome any hurdle that lies before us and create the life we want to live. I have seen it happen time and time again.

I was a good liar as a child.

I truly beleive that we

I truly beleive that we can overcome any hurdle that lies before us.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Opportunity

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.

If I chose to have a nanny, I’d be able to pay to have a nanny – a lot of women don’t have that opportunity. I don’t feel like I’m a working single mom, because I have that option that a lot of people don’t have.

By moving to London I removed myself from the madness of the entertainment industry. I love the city and the culture, and it was an opportunity to bring my children up in a more sane environment.

Education is key. We have to keep girls in school and give them the same opportunities that boys have. They need access to vocational training and mentorship, as well. It’s an issue of gender equality, which is fortunately a hot topic right now, but we need to keep at it and not rest on our laurels.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On School

I didn’t pay as much attention in school as I would have liked to.

In my case, I was born to

In my case, I was born to parents who were very young, and I don’t think they were entirely ready to have a child. My dad was going to college and working two or three jobs at the same time, and my mum was working and going to school.

What happens in our lives

What happens in our lives is not really anybody’s fault but our own… When I was in high school, I was in an atheist crowd, and it was the consensus that religion was a crutch.

People always ask if I was really voted Most Bizarre Girl in high school. But that one’s actually true. I was living in Michigan in a very conservative town and had a nose-ring and a shaved head and did kind of strange things.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Counttry

It’s a proven fact that when you raise the status of girls and women in a country, that country does much better economically.

We have to raise the status of girls and women in every country.

The first time, where Fox Mulder and Scully met, she stands up for herself. She stands right there and gives it to him and that was extremely attractive.

You’re only given as much as you can handle at any given time. Whether it’s true or not, it gives you the strength.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Reading

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Regert

I was a daydreamer, and there is a lot of history and geography and science I missed out on because I was in my head. And I regret that.

I have a tendency

I have a tendency to go through my life at full speed and as a one-man band, and so I don’t generally stop and take in other people enough to develop many relationships. I’m starting to regret that a bit. I want to change it.

I’ve been very careful. I’ve gone through pretty much everything. I’m very careful not to let go of the prized possessions, or too much of it that I’ll regret in the future.

Gillian Anderson Quotes On Relationships

You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships-the ones that last-are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

So much of this world is based on illusion, temporaries, and disposability that I think it’s essential that our closest relationships reflect what is real.
