The 52-year-old made the revelation during a Q&A session on Instagram Live on Monday, July 12. After a fan asked what her go-to outfit was during the lockdown, she first spilled, "It's probably the same one as my out of lockdown outfit. I mean, I've gotten so lazy and I don't wear a bra anymore. I can't wear a bra. I can't, no, I can't. I'm sorry."
"I don't care if my breasts reach my belly button. I'm not wearing a bra, it's just too f**king uncomfortable," the British-American actress quipped. "So yeah, comfortable black track pants and a black matching hoodie. I'd wear that every day if I could."
After the video made its way to Twitter, many applauded the "Sex Education" star for her choice. One user said, "I agree-[haven't] worn one since I was 12, sooooo uncomfortable! Baggy shirts maybe, bras hard no!" Another echoed, "Omg! I am so with you @GillianA I hate bras. They are truly uncomfortable." A third gushed, "Literally an icon, I'm with you Gillian #freerange."
The post came nearly three months after Gillian reunited with her former "The X-Files" co-star David Duchovny. On April 18, the Dana Scully depicter shared two Instagram pictures of her and her co-star famed as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder along with her puppy. "Stella made a new friend today. @davidduchovny," she captioned the post.
"The X-Files" fans couldn't hide their excitement after seeing the photos. "Bold of you to assume we can handle this," one person exclaimed, before another wondered in disbelief, "Am i alive?" Someone else jokingly commented, "I've just died a thousand deaths from one photo!!"
