Gillian Anderson just put a little more truth out there.

The X-Files heroine reveals in the latest issue of Out magazine that she has had romantic relationships with women over the years.

"I was in a relationship with a girl for a long time when I was in high school," the 43-year-old mother of three said, recalling other past relationships that included a "punk rock drug addict" and somebody "way, way older" than her as well.

But obviously Out wanted to know a little bit more about her high school days...

"Yeah, yeah, well it's..." she began. "You know, I'm old enough that I can talk about that."

Alas, the actress who played the cool, calm and frustratingly skeptical Dana Scully didn't say much more about it.

Anderson did maintain that her liaisons with women have been the exception to the rule.

The twice-divorced star of the BBC adaptation of Great Expectations (airing soon on PBS' Masterpiece) has a 17-year-old daughter with her first husband, whom she was married to for three years. She also has two sons, 5 and 3, with current love Mark Griffiths.
