Anderson Sells Off X-files Memorabilia For Charity

X-FILES star GILLIAN ANDERSON is selling off her vast collection of memorabilia from the cult sci-fi show to raise cash for her favourite charities.
More than 500 rare and signed items will be auctioned off by website eBay.com's Giving Works charity division from 17 July (08), as fans of the hit TV show franchise get ready for the new X-Files film, I Want To Believe.
And Anderson admits there are one or two keepsakes she's already having second thoughts about selling.
She says, "There's an FBI file that I'm a bit hesitant to auction because it may be one of only two in existence - but I'm doing it anyway.
"And almost all the behind the scene photographs bring back extremely vivid memories.
"They're actually quite intimate... compared to all the posed photos out there."
Auction Cause boss Eric Gazin, who will manage the charity sale, adds, "A lot of the items have been in storage for years.
"I guess Gillian has accumulated a lot of stuff and she feels it's time to give back to the fans and raise some charity funds in the process.
"For us, the highlights include a cross necklace (Anderson's character) Agent Scully wore on the TV show and a real X-Files case file. It's an amazing collection."
The charities that will benefit from the haul Anderson's collection is expected to fetch include Artists for a New South Africa and BuskAid.
Meanwhile, as fans await the opening of the auction, they can currently bid on the chance to attend the upcoming X-Files premiere and meet Anderson as part of another eBay/Auction Cause bidding war.
Bids for that item have reached $1,000 (GBP500). Bidding closes on 17 July (08).

Brovi says: WARNING…As Los Angeles California’s most secret insider, Gillian Anderson is wrong in her advertising aid for Africa>as horrific as their situation is>so is that of God fearing homeless people in the U.S. & U.K.>one can easily die on our streets! …easily! Historic research + current historic research is needed to understanding this statement. …For 1, African tribes have been killing and oppressing one another as apart of their religion and culture for decades upon decades>the current tribe being oppressed is unfortunate>who is responsible for the African people not joining the rest of society -who quest in the fight for being more civilized in our existence? …For 2, who are the largest diamond merchants in the world …yes, old F**king Hollywood. …Where are the largest, most vulnerable diamond fields in the world? …Africa! …For b, what do the U.S. and U.K. do after invading a country with intitial humanitarian aid …they exploit their natural resouces via war! Gillian Anderson, regarding the above: …we have always supported Anderson’s fight against the lethal oppression against her and children via old Hollywood …yet, her advertising to begin WWIII via Africa’s diamond field via humanitarian support>which will make our current war look like child’s play= Gillian Anderson deserves all that old Hollywood threatens her with to date>should her behaviors continue …her worst fears should come to her …and beyond. best, brovi

brovi says: P.S. ...we here in Los Angeles would not give a cent for any of the bad vibe stuff from the set of the T.V. Corp. Nazi X-Files>no way! Too much is known about what actually went on then and there, i.e., they made Anderson work almost up to the day of the birth of her first child (working up to 17 hours daily, 6 days a week) to include ordering her onto a hard, cold,concrete floor wrestling around with alien dummies in her ninth month.) Wack Nazis! We wonder if they torture small animals as well. Yes, we might purchase stuff for the charity ...but then burn it, however. This is not to say that the stuff she is freeing herself from doesn't have an implied value via the character she rendered so well. Yet, the reality of what this actor experienced by the hands of true human monsters within that X-File T,V. set is so far beyond most people's imagination, ...no, not even Gillian Anderson can breath life and hope back into the tainted corp. Hollywood objects which she gave life to in that T.V. series. Burn it! best, brovi
