During the run of X Files, you appeared on lots of “sexiest women” lists. Were you flattered or embarrassed?
Gillian Anderson: The first time, I did the interview on the phone wearing old flannel pajamas, which was funny. For years, I kind of shrugged it off, but as you get older, if people are still paying attention, it’s flattering.
Judging from recent photos, you could still make the lists.
GA: Thank you. For years I never paid much attention to what I looked like. Now when I see old pictures, I think, Why did I let someone put giant curls in my hair and put me in that dress?! I’m finally paying more attention now.
