Gillian Anderson is a woman of many duelling qualities, and it is hard to know quite what to expect when meeting her. Her old interviews are displays of either surprising candour or frosty reserve. She can be earnest and thoughtful, sometimes to the point of seeming grave, yet she peppers her social media with penis/yoni of the day posts, pictures of things that happen to look like genitals, even when they are not. She speaks with an American accent when with Americans, and with a crisp British accent with Brits, though she retains a US sheen on only one word that I clocked: process.

It is a strange thing, yes, she agrees, adding that of all the pieces, she probably wont make a habit of wearing the one with her own face on it. Its an impish design, but this being Anderson, theres more to it than a bit of self-reflective fun: some of its profits will go to Women for Women, which helps support female survivors of conflict.
