"Akte-X"-Star bekennt sich zu Sucht & Depression

Gillian Anderson spricht erstmals über ihre finstere Vergangenheit.

Ihr Privatleben hat sich bislang höchst erfolgreich unter Verschluss gehalten. In einem Interview mit dem Guardian sprach Schauspielerin Gillian Anderson (48) nun aber erstmals offen über ihre Vergangenheit, die trotz TV-Erfolgen alles andere als rosig war. Der Akte-X-Star litt jahrelang unter Depressionen.

„Es gab Zeiten in meinem Leben, da wollte ich das Haus nicht verlassen.“ Seit ihrem 14. Lebensjahr befindet sich die Amerikanerin nach eigenen Angaben konstant in Therapie. Auch unter Suchtproblemen hatte der Serien-Star zu leiden, der derzeit die neue Serie „American Gods“ dreht. Details über ihre Sucht wollte sie im Interview aber nicht verraten.

Stattdessen blickt sie lieber positiv in die Zukunft. Anderson ist seit einigen Monaten frisch verliebt. Sie und der britische Drehbuchautor Peter Morgan (53) sind ein Paar. Er hatte sich zuvor von der Wienerin Lila Schwarzenberg (48) getrennt.
