Gillian Anderson is going fancy free as she revealed she has sworn off bras as they ‘f*****g uncomfortable’.
The X Files star, 52, isn’t bothered about letting it all hang out and told fans she doesn’t mind people seeing gravity take its course.
In an Instagram Live she told fans she had become ‘so lazy’ which has now extended to her wardrobe.
Gillian, looking relaxed in a black dress with her blonde hair in a ponytail declared: ‘I don’t wear a bra anymore. I can’t wear a bra.
‘I can’t, no, there’s no, I’m sorry but I don’t care if I reach my belly button, my breasts reach my belly button, I am not wearing a bra any more. It’s just too f*****g uncomfortable.’
The clip, from the actress’ 32-minute long video on social media, has been circulating on social media as fans praised her for the decision with one response on Twitter reading: ‘If two time golden globe and emmy winning actress gillian anderson says no more bras, who are we to disagree.’
‘I agree—haven’t worn one since I was 12, sooooo uncomfortable! Baggy shirts maybe, bras hard no!’ another replied.
Another fan commented on Twitter: ‘Oh Gillian, I hear you. It’s torturous. Since I retired last year I’ve been wearing sports bras a size up what I should as they’re much more comfortable. But wearing no bra is the best. Freedom!’

‘Thank you! Look out work mates when we’re back in the office a few days a week in September. Boobs be flying everywhere!’ one person joked.
Read another reply: ‘Amen sisters!!!! I quit wearing a bra years ago! We women deserve our comfort. I love this! Why in the world shouldn’t women have the same feeling of comfort in clothing and shoes that men have enjoyed for years?!?! Big smile!!!’
However many felt a stab of envy that they feel unable to go braless as effortlessly as the star of The Crown, as one Twitter user said: ‘I am a 44 DDD senior. If I tried to walk around without a bra I’d have two black eyes.’
Read a further tweet: ‘God, she’s so lucky she can do that. I can’t get away with it with these bazoombas.’
‘My boobs are to big to go without if I don’t want people staring at my chest when I’m talking to them. At home I don’t wear them often,’ came another reply.
The star also chatted about her beloved dog Stella in the Q&A, and got the giggles as she showed pictures of her to fans.
Revealing her new BFF on social media she jokingly called Stella her ‘girlfriend’ in the wake of her split from The Crown creator Peter Morgan after four years together.
