Gillian Anderson Criticized by Daughter over Career Choices

BS2BS574022 X Files star Gillian Anderson is one of those actresses who always put her family first. However, even though she has been a devoted mother, her daughter Piper is a bit disappointed that her mother turned down some roles.

When asked if she refused to participate in certain projects because of family commitments, the 44-year-old actress confirmed it. She told Stylist magazine: ”Yes, but also because I don’t like the roles very much. Not that they’re not good! Whether it’s Game of Thrones or Downtown Abbey, my 18-year-old daughter cannot believe I’ve turned down things she loves. But with a four and six year old, I can’t justify spending that kind of time away from home, unless I’m working with Scorsese.”

gillian-anderson-640x360 Speaking about acting job and family, Gillian also said: ”I try not to spend too much time on screens, which is a challenge today … I enjoy the work I do and I’m very grateful because I like being on a set. I like being part of a production and the creative process. I get a lot of enjoyment and reward from that. But I’m happiest when surrounded by my kids, whether that’s in a house or a park or whatever, and there’s laughter. That brings me most joy.”
