This Monday, on her day off from the production of A Streetcar Named Desire she’s currently performing in, Gillian Anderson took the time to do an Answer Time, the Tumblr version of an AMA.
Yes, apparently things between Anderson (“Chewie’s Girlfriend” on Tumblr) and her BFF have progressed over the last few months.
And good for them! Based on some of her responses to the Tumblr folks, it sounds like a good match.
So what else did Gillian Anderson choose to talk about? Well, first of all, she gave us all the gift of a GIF selfie.
She answered a lot of questions about how she handles playing an emotionally draining role
like Blanche DuBois. She says this production is making her ” anti-social and anti-adventurous,” and coping mechanisms include epsom salt bubble baths and changing the subject.
She also just gave us a great, brief look into the world of Gillian Anderson. From important character studies—
TO THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF OUR TIME, ANSWERED WITH BEYONCE LYRICS.
Also, you now know what scents to drench yourself in to catch Gillian Anderson’s nose.
Swoon. A million swoons.
