Gillian Anderson is known worldwide for her role as Agent Scully in the X-Files. It has been 13 years since the show ended and these years have further aged the middle-aged actress. Anderson has claimed in the past that her aging concerns her and that at such times she thinks of fellow actresses who have aged gracefully. Her conflicting thoughts on the matter may be the reason why she has never confirmed nor denied having any plastic surgery.
A careful comparison of her recent photos with those from her past reveals a surprising story.
A NOSE JOB
A look at any of Anderson’s photographs from the 90s shows her with a plump face and a rather round nose. Recent photographs show that Anderson has a thin, streamlined nose, making it absolutely clear that she has had a nose job done. The changes in the structure of her nose cannot be explained by weight loss claims. Both her nostrils as well as the tip of her nose have been reduced and such reductions do not happen without going under the knife.
POSSIBLE BOTOX INJECTIONS
Anderson has spoken of her admiration for women who have aged gracefully. This admiration may be what has stopped her from going overboard with Botox injections. In her latest photographs, the wrinkles around her mouth and the creases around her eyes are prominent. But, her cheeks and forehead are remarkably free of lines and creases. In some photos, her face looks frozen which is how many celebrities look after Botox injections. It is highly possible that Anderson has taken a limited number of injections.
Anderson’s inner struggle to justify plastic surgery may have caused her to seek middle ground. She has fixed the areas she was most conscious of, her nose, cheeks and forehead, and has chosen to allow the rest of her features to age gracefully. It will be interesting to see how Anderson changes in the coming years and whether she chooses to age gracefully or go under the knife.
