Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are totally down for doing a third X-Files film — but is anyone else? The 2008 sequel made an appalling $4 million on opening day, so it would really be up to the studio. And then it’s a matter of whether or not fans would go see it. Here’s what Duchovny said about it at a panel for the TV show’s 20th anniversary, via Los Angeles Times:
All the principals are on board. Gillian and I want to do it, so it’s really up to 20th Century Fox at this point…If it takes fan encouragement to get Fox interested in that, then I guess that’s what it would be.
“All the principals” includes the show’s creator, Chris Carter.
So what do you guys think? Would YOU see a new X-Files movie? Honestly, all I want to see is Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny come out as a couple.

From exclusive sources at Celebrity Dirty Laundry:
… A source exclusively told CDL that David and Gillian have been in a serious relationship for some time now and she and her children are shacking up with the Californication actor. This is a long time coming for the pair whose chemistry on their hit show was always a source of tabloid conjecture. Gillian and David worked together from 1993 to 2002 and starred in the movie version in 2008. Although it seems every fan in the world wanted to get the two together, a relationship was never declared during filming.
Now wait a second, here. I thought that Gillian was gay? Or is gay? I definitely heard somewhere that she was all about the ladies these days, but I don’t know. Maybe I was wrong, or invented it, or had a weird dream one night, I couldn’t tell you. But if this is true? MAN. Can you imagine what it’d be like as a fly in that house? These two could be the new ROBSTEN. They could take the media by STORM as SMULDER. Or MULLY. Or hey, even something like Ducanderny. Anduchon. SMULDER.
Who knows. Maybe it’s true, and maybe there’s some kind of X-Files reunion thing going to happen soon. That’s usually how these things play out, and then not too far down the road, someone goes and sleeps with a director and helps to ruin another marriage. It’s only a matter of time, guys. You wait. David Duchovny’s going to be sleeping with Steven Spielberg any day now.

You guys, I almost totally forgot! The Entertainment Lawyer who scribes Crazy Days and Nights is finally “naming names,” as is his hallowed New Year’s Day tradition.
Emily hit on some of the year’s best, most salacious scandals, but you guys! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.

Ever since they announced their split last year, David Duchovny and Tea Leoni have been seen together all over the place both as a couple and with their children. This weekend they spent Father’s Day weekend together in Malibu. Sometimes, making an “impending divorce” statment is just the trick to re-ignite the spark in a marriage.
According to friends, the couple are “still in love,” and trying to make it work for their kids. You don’t see too much of that in Hollywood — or anywhere, for that matter — so it’s nice when it happens.
Duchovny openly admitted to struggling with a sex addiction. Here’s hoping he’s licked it.

There’s no better way to ask America nicely to stop talking about your no-longer-estranged husband’s stay in sexhab than to show up courtside at a Knicks game with your two young children.
David Duchovny and Tea Leoni brought their kiddos, Madelaine and Kyd, to watch the Knicks play the Pistons in New York on Monday night.
Those are very cute kids, although they do look terribly bored to be there. Also I always think it’s kind of shitty to drag children into a PR stunt, but I guess I see what they’re trying to say here. Like, “Please stop talking about how my husband’s a sex maniac; my children have to exist in the same universe as your magazines.”
Lastly, I have to say that I love their kids’ names. I think Madelaine (or any variation on the spelling) is always an adorable little girl’s name, and naming a boy “Kyd” is actually kind of a cool idea. It’s very cute on a child and very sexy on a man. I dig.

Edit Pakay (pictured above, left), the 28 year-old tennis instructor and mid-life crisisÂ to David Duchovny, is speaking out to The Daily Mail about their relationship.Â What are the chances that Duchovny will ever take her call again?
“We have a very, very close friendship. I don’t want to be the third person in the marriage but I know it can be seen that way.Â David and I are very close friends and we still play tennis together. He’s an excellent player. He likes physically strong, fit women.Â He is in great shape. He is a wonderful man.”
When asked directly if they had a sexual relationship, she replied “I don’t want to say anything that might hurt David. I am not going to deny it. I don’t know what our relationship means to him.”
David allegedly told her that he was going to leave his wifeÂ so that they could be together.Â And she believes him.Â Young and stupid.
Ah…and my favorite quote of the interview: “I might talk more later.”Â Really?Â What elseÂ could you possibly say?Â You fucked David Duchovny.Â We get it.
Tea Leoni must beÂ in awe of what a cliche her life has become.
