Former X-Files star Gillian Anderson will never appear on TV again, claiming it is destroying society.

The actress has stuck to movies since quitting the series in 2002 - recently appearing in Academy Award-winning film The Last King Of Scotland.

And although she is rumoured to be reuniting with David Duchovny for another movie version of the hit sci-fi show - she insists she would rather be unemployed than return to the small screen.

Anderson tells PageSix, "My God, I don't even watch television. I don't like television. I never have liked it. The whole concept of sitting down in front of a TV feels like one of the things that's destroying society, as far as I'm concerned."

=======================

But Films are ok?

She was in the BBC adaptation of bleak house in 2005 so the report is wrong to say she has stuck to movies since 2002.

I believe the phrase "The mouth is in motion, but the brain isn't in gear" applies here Laughing

This sort of line was being peddled when I was a small boy, 50 years ago. It wasn't true then and isn't now. Moderation of use is the key. Enjoy TV but don't let it take your life over.

I read an interview in last Sundays Telegraph where she was saying the same things. I think she's bitter about previously being locked into her contract to do X-Files and that she would never do a long running tv show again.

Fair enough, she was great in X-files, ever seen her on a chat show, the little minx has a cracking brit accent and other *ahem* assets that one could find appealing so speak on, young Anderson, please - share forth your cup of wisdom, your disciple is listening.... Embarassed

Said assets, er, certainly defied gravity in the X-Files episode "One Breath".... Shocked Laughing

However, my favourite GA X-Files moment was in "War of the Cochraphrages", with the "her name is Bambi?" line....
