Actress Gillian Anderson is struggling to find love as she never gets to meet any eligible men.
The X-Files star has been a single woman since splitting from businessman Mark Griffiths, her partner of six years and father of her two sons Oscar and Felix, in 2012.
Although insisting she is “content” to be on her own, Gillian admits she would love some romance in her life but never gets the chance because she doesn’t cross paths with any potential suitors.
“I don’t feel anything is lacking in my life,” she tells The Observer Magazine. “I certainly don’t sit on bar stools, pining. But the fact is I just haven’t met anyone, and I don’t know where people do meet people… The thing is that there are needs and there are wants. I have a list of needs and I will not compromise about those. But aside from that… I don’t meet anybody!
“It’s not like I meet people, and they ask me out, and I say no. It’s not even like I meet people and I don’t give them enough attention. I just don’t meet them at all. I’m either on a plane, or on set, or with my children. There have been people in my life who’ve tried to set me up, and if a friend said: ‘I know someone amazing’, I would show up. But here’s the thing: I’ve got three children. It’s a big ask.”
Gillian was married to Clyde Klotz from 1994 to 1997 and they have a daughter, Piper. Following her divorce, the actress wed Julian Ozanne in 2004 but they split two years later (06).
