No Filter: Gillian Anderson Cordially Invites You to Walk All Over Her

Hello and welcome back to another rousing edition of No Filter, a column in which I tell you which celebrities are important based off of their social media presence. This week, nobody is important except for this flirtation(?!) between Gillian Anderson and Kristin Chenoweth:

Also, your straight friend Kit Porter rescued this horse:
Guys, you’re married now, you don’t have to look so sad! I’m sure someone bought you a very nice espresso machine!

Would you like to think about Jen Richards for a while? I would.

Your girlfriend Lena Waithe looked cool as a goddamn cucumber on the red carpet the other night. So did the fascinating gentleman enjoying a personal champagne behind her.
Amandla Stenberg and their gorgeous new hair situation did not come to play with you.

Here for all badass women representing Time’s Up but would selfishly also like to encourage Sarah Paulson to post more selfies.

Samira Wiley’s dress required its own entourage.
I will never be able to get the image of Kehlani as Judy Funnie out of my head.

Oh okay, Mallory Ortberg.

This just makes sense.
Demi Lovato invited me over to hang in her pool the other day, it was super chill, there was a cooler full of Passionfruit La Croix and Capri Sun.

  1. I really wanted to make a cool pun but all I can say, phew, that Lena Waithe picture… (fans self)

    • whenever i read the word ‘kebab’ I imagine Liam Neeson saying it in Love Actually.

      “Sam! I made kebabs!”

  2. @ Kristin & Gillian if you want kabobs I know a great place that’s close to the walk of fame. It’s can server authentic Iranian kakbob, with real Iranian-American atmosphere, rice with saffron, all handmade from by a great Iranian couple I call my parents(or grandma if you rather go more classic). I’m sure my parents would be glad to have two celebs over, I know my queer ass would be.
