Anderson Unfit For X-files Role

Actress GILLIAN ANDERSON was exhausted when shooting scenes for her role in THE X-FILES movie - because she was so out of shape.
The star reprised her role as Agent Dana Scully for a big screen adaptation of the sci-fi series after a six year break.
And Anderson admits she had let her physical health slip.
She says, "There was a lot of rust I had to shake-off. The physical part surprised me the most when we started shooting because it was a lot tougher than expected.
"I was 24 when I first started the television series and now I'm almost 40. I just feel really old for some reason.
"David (Duchovny) is in a lot better shape than I am. That's why he gets so many more stunts for the film."

A fresh hair job, facial and a new outfit may help with the reality concerning the fact that she compromised herself (once again) by lending her name to the X-Files 2 movie. For those in the know in Hollywood, the Fox X-Files group are known as "Duchvony and The Nazi Boys" ridding Anderson's skirt with intimidation. In 10 years do we think that Anderson will agree with her choice to do X-files 2? No. Seemingly, a bit off topic, what few know about Anderson is that she is extremely sensitive to the point that even air is beyond painful. Perhaps someday she will grasp the fact that this is not a curse but protection. Being normal is not apart of a true artist's makeup. Trying to prove something to others or oneself is an ancient mistake for the less well read or faithless and/or coerced. Anderson has all that she needs for a lifetime right now. She just hasn't figured it out yet. Fear not my Gillian Anderson fans. Anderson is talent gifted and sharp as they come. We will be seeing more of her in the long future. Artist never stop. All the best, brovi>broKA

P.S Do we believe Anderson's scripted commentaries (one of too many) about how she was just a working waitress off the street that just happened to look in the news paper want adds for auditions (T.V. X-Files job.) No way. We here in Hollywood California, in the biz, ...and most all who have internet all know of her family's connections with Fox prior to her Fox T.V. X-Files audition. Anderson is not known as a liar except when her twisted advisors instruct her to do so ...shame, shame, ...for the honest of heart it takes only one fly in the perfume bath to putrefy it. The truth will set you free. Moreover, it's beyond evident that Anderson is under a great deal of stress with this recent X-Files reunion ...tailer your suit sleeves dear (hint, hint.) All the best to Anderson and may all of her close seemingly friends, family and protective advisors suck the big one for eternity for not doing their job -at her expense. brovi>broKA
