GIRLS ‘STILL SELL SEX’ TO GET INTO FILMS X-Files Gil­lian slams randy movie bosses

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN neil@sun­daysport.co.uk

THE X Files babe Gil­lian An­der­son has slammed Hol­ly­wood pro­duc­ers who sub­ject ac­tresses to the ‘cast­ing couch’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

The fa­bled prac­tice sees women per­form­ing sex acts on big­wigs in re­turn for roles in movies.

Gil­lian, 46, said that it’s still tak­ing place – and blasted it as in­tol­er­a­ble.

The Amer­i­can ac­tress, who ap­pears in new se­rial killer TV se­ries The Fall, slammed: “At the be­gin­ning of my ca­reer, the pay dis­par­ity was mas­sive.

Abused

“But that hap­pens all the time in Hol­ly­wood.

“It’s, ‘Do this for me, I’ll get you a job.’

“All the stuff in the pa­pers to­day about peo­ple in en­ter­tain­ment who have abused their po­si­tion…

“Sex­ism is built into our so­ci­ety – it’s easy to miss and it’s easy to get used to it.”

Gil­lian, who in 1996 was voted the ‘Sex­i­est Woman in the World’ for FHM’s 100 Sex­i­est Women poll, added: “There are things that are in­tol­er­a­ble in to­day’s world in terms of the per­cep­tion of women.

“Whether they are vamps or vix­ens, the ex­pec­ta­tion is that, if a woman is wear­ing a short skirt, she’s ‘ask­ing for it’.”
