By Jenelle Riley
October 27, 2011
Gillian Anderson has battled alien invaders, faced shadowy conspiracies, and played some of the most memorable women in literature. So, what intimidates her? Watching herself onscreen. "The first time I see something I'm in, it's very hard for me," she admits. "I've got one thing on my mind and one thing only: picking apart my performance."

Dear Me: celebrity letters to their younger selves - interactive
Don't do drugs, stop hating your thighs, buy shares in Google: from the book Dear Me, 10 celebrities (including Gillian) write letters to their 16-year-old selves with some choice words of advice.
"In Dear Me, 75 of the world's favourite actors, musicians, movie stars, writers and celebrities, have written a letter to their 16-year-old selves. With a foreword by JK Rowling and contributors ranging from Gillian Anderson, Hugh Jackman and Gene Hackman through to Stephen King and Jodi Picoult, this could be a great gift for a teenager who needs a little wisdom, through to someone looking back on their younger years."

By Shahesta Shaitly
Saturday 8 October 2011
The older you get the less memory you have. I have trouble differentiating between what are childhood memories and what I may have seen in a photograph or been told about by my mum. Do I really remember lying in a hammock on a beach in Puerto Rico when I was a year old?
Correction: The movie critic of the New York Times mentioned in the interview was not Frank Rich. It was Stephen Holden.
