Gillian Anderson shows her love for the SpongeBob SquarePants meme

Gillian Anderson has received critical and fan praise for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on Netflix. The crown.

Her fashion sense on the show recently fueled the imagination of a social media user, who posted a meme on Monday of an image of Anderson’s Thatcher juxtaposed against SpongeBob SquarePants. The photo quickly found popularity online, and Anderson herself even endorsed the comparison.

“TO LIKE!” Anderson wrote in a post that shared the meme. The actress also changed her profile picture on Twitter to the image of SpongeBob SquarePants.

The SpongeBob image shows the animated character from the hit Nickelodeon show dressed in an outfit similar to the one Anderson wears in an image from The crown. According to a SpongeBob fan site, the character’s photo dates back to the first season of the series, in 1999. The episode titled The Mermaid Man and the Barnacle Boy– had Spongebob disguising himself as an old woman.

Anderson joined The crown for Season 4, and she won an Emmy in 2021 for her portrayal of Thatcher. (She won an Emmy 24 years earlier for playing Agent Dana Scully on the sci-fi series X files.) Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last month, the production of The crown took a break out of respect for the late monarch. Netflix later announced that Season 5 would premiere on November 9.

SpongeBob SquarePants, meanwhile, continues to be a popular presence on Nickelodeon, and the show was renewed for a 14th season in March. The franchise has branched out into feature films, comic books, and theme park rides.

Anderson’s appreciation for the meme drew praise from other Twitter users.

“Still killing,” one user wrote in the comments section of Anderson’s SpongeBob post.

“Scully can’t hurt,” wrote another person, referencing her famous character on X files.

Another person commented, “you are the coolest person ever, CONFIRMED.”

One Twitter user was surprised Anderson found the photo, writing, “GIRL HOW DID THIS GET ON YOUR RADAR.”

The meme also helped a fan discover Anderson’s Twitter account, which the person naturally noted by sharing an image of a happy SpongeBob.

The Twitter user who created the SpongeBob meme has posted several times since Anderson publicly supported its creation.

“WHAT DID WE DO,” wrote the user, who only uses the name “Anne” on the platform and frequently posts Anderson-related content.

Pleasemynews contacted Anderson, Nickelodeon and “Anne” for comment.
