Gillian Anderson had ‘asked Chris Martin out on a date’, reportedly forty six year old, Anderson, who is best known her portrayal of FBI Special Agent Dana Scully in the hit television series The X-Files has a soft spot
for her friend of many years following the frontman of Coldplay’s 2014 split from his actress wife Gwyneth Paltrow
A source told The Sun newspaper:
“They’re an unlikely combination, but there’s definitely chemistry between them.
“Chris has always been keen to keep his personal life private so, as expected, the blossoming romance is very low-key.
“His pals are intrigued to see if it turns into a bigger deal.”
However the actress and mother-of-three, who has been married two times before said she has no interest in being in a relationship with younger men.
“To me, a married man is simply a no go.
“I’m not interested in younger men either.
“I suppose I might ask a man out, but I believe at this stage of my life it’s better not to manipulate the situation. If it happens, it happens.
“What I am sure about is that I want my next relationship to be ‘The One’.”
More on Anderson, she is from Chicago. She has appeared in The Last King of Scotland and the TV series The Fall.
