Anna Gunn is not related to James Gunn. It was confirmed by both of them in several separate interviews.

James also posted about this topic back in December of 2014 on Facebook. His post states, ” Why do people always ask if I’m related to Anna Gunn but almost never if I’m related to Tim Gunn?”

“It’s not like she’s incredibly more famous than he is, so the disparity confuses me.”

He clarifies the situation by further adding, “By the way, I’m related to neither. They are, like most Gunns, most likely of Scottish descent. I’m Irish (my great-grandparents changed their last name when they came to the U.S.)”

This information clearly shows that James and Anna are not related in any form except for the fact that they share a common last name.

James’s doubt about her descent was later proven false as many sources do claim that Anna is of Polish, Slovak, English, German and distant Irish and Dutch descent.
