E! is reporting that David Duchovny has checked himself into a rehab facility for sex addiction. Duchovny stars in and won a Golden Globe for his acting in Californication, a Showtime series coincidentally about a writer whose sex life is out of control. It makes you wonder about his casting on the series, which came first, the role or the addiction? Is he acting at all? Or perhaps the rehab’s just a bit of research for the role?
All signs seems to say that, unfortunately, the addiction is real. Interviews given by Duchovny and wife of 11 years, Tea Leoni, have mentioned and denied the rumor of his sex addiction. Leoni told Elle magazine in 1998: “David was accused of being a sex addict. Which I always found very exciting. And then I found out it wasn’t true.” [Photo: Getty Images]
