Is Gillian Anderson Bisexual Or a Lesbian?

The "Sex Education" star Gillian Anderson is one of the most talented actresses known for her versatility and devotion in acting. She has reached several milestones, polished her name with multiple accomplishments, and glorified her authenticity confidently and gracefully. 

With her involvement in the industry for a long time, her sexuality was often confused as a lesbian and bisexual. Anderson finally opened up about the matter and revealed her identity she hid for a long time. 

Gillian Anderson- Growing Up As a Bisexual

 They say, "People may hate you for being different and not living by society's standards, but deep down, they wish they dared to do the same."

Anderson always kept her different from the so-called societal standards. The most positive trait she always carried was being true to herself no matter what. 

Love binds thousands of shattered pieces together. It is a cynosure to all the healings and different people add different colors to this term. Likewise, she fills in the vibrant colors of the rainbow to the word love. 

As per, The Guardian, this iron lady realized her sexuality as a bisexual during her college days.

That's when she first exchanged her heart with a girl who expressed herself as a lesbian. Luckily, both of them fell for each other and started dating.

The love they shared then was immaculate. No doubt they were one of the most popular lesbian couples in their college. Being a little different certainly invites bullies, but Anderson overlooked everything and all she cared about was her girlfriend.

Unfortunately, the girl she loved caught up with a severe brain hemorrhage and bid the world farewell.

Anderson doubted her for being lesbian back in the days, but she soon realized her authenticity of being a bisexual.

Despite the rumors, she never really opened up about her sexuality as a bisexual until 2012 in Hollywood. Till then, she had already gone through two failed marriages with her ex-husbands.

In 1994, on the set of "X-Files," she met the movie's assistant director, Clyde Klotz. The two fell in love and eventually got married. But after three years of being together, they got divorced in 1997.

Today, Anderson has one daughter and two sons named Piper Maru Klotz, Felix Griffiths, and Oscar Griffiths and she is leading a joyous life with them. 

Gillian is flourishing in her career, which has moved a lot further and she has appeared in various popular shows like The Late Show With James Corden, Late Show With Jimmy Kimmel, and more.

"But I want to dedicate this award to a woman who was my manager for 20 years, Connie Freiberg, who believed in me when no one else would and believed I had talent when I didn't even think that I had talent."

Anderson emotionally accepted the award and continued,

"She is the one who always advised me to take the high road; who was one of the best friends that I've ever had in my life and who wore the same dress five years running to every award show three times a year that we went to."
