The truth is definitely now out there: Dogs may be man’s best friend, but they can also get between two BFFs.
Gillian Anderson introduced her new pooch, Stella, to her X-Files co-star David Duchovny and shared a pair of photos of the trio on social media
The former, fictional FBI agents, posed for selfies with Stella, who kind of stole the show.
“Stella made a new friend today,” Anderson posted Sunday, tagging Duchovny in the snaps on Twitter and Instagram.

Stella, of course, is front and centre.
Stella really does steal the scene — squeezing out Duchovny in the process.
And, it further goes to show, you really can’t work with animals.
It was last December when Anderson, who plays British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in The Crown, introduced the world to Stella in an Instagram post.
“Meet my new gf Stella,” she wrote about the fluffy black doggo.
Since then, she’s shared a series of photos of her cuddling with Stella along with some cheeky commentary.
“What more does a girl need?” she wrote alongside an image of Stella making herself at home between Anderson’s legs.
Stella is 100 per cent adorable.
Anderson also has a French bulldog named Nelson.

She’s definitely a dog person.

And even dresses up her pets in costumes.

Of course, the lighthearted photos of Anderson and Duchovny prompted all kinds of questions.
Another X-Files reboot? Are they part of the same household? Why are they indoors, unmasked and not social distancing amid ongoing pandemic?
And on those measures, the truth is not so out there.
But let’s focus on the dog shall we — because she’s certainly fixed her gaze directly on us.
