‘X Files’ Star Gillian Anderson Splits from Longtime Boyfriend

Gillian Anderson Mark GriffithsSomeone alert Agent Mulder, Scully is back on the market! After a six-year-long relationship, X Files star Gillian Anderson has split from her boyfriend, Mark Griffiths. “Gillian Anderson and her partner Mark Griffiths have amicably separated after six years together,” Anderson’s rep told Us Weekly. While the couple never married, they have two sons together: Oscar, age five, and Felix, three. 

Back in March, Anderson opened up to Out magazine about her young love life. “I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school,” she said. Anderson speaks candidly and comfortably of her lesbian relationship, wary of making it a big deal. “If I had thought I was 100% gay, would it have been a different experience for me? … It’s possible that my attitude around it came, on some level, from knowing that I still liked boys.”

In the past decade, however, Anderson has been unlucky in love. She and her first husband, director Clyde Klotz, divorced in 1997. Then, after a two-year marriage, she split from her second husband Julian Ozanne in 2006.

X Files writer gunning for a third box office installment

Celebrity Editor Abbey Stone hails from the fair isle of Martha's Vineyard, a lovely, vaguely dinosaur-shaped spot of land located off the coast of Cape Cod, MA, that is best known for exporting preppy salmon-colored pants. But the bright lights of New York City beckoned, and Abbey was lured away from her coastal haven to attend Barnard College. She graduated in 2010 with a degree in English and a much less useful minor in Dance. Abbey has been published in Dance Magazine, The Huffington Post, Time Out New York, and Popstar! magazine (where she learned more than she ever wanted to know about Justin Bieber). Abbey now lives in Brooklyn, where she spends her days watching stupid Internet videos and reading pretentious books.
