Now ain’t this some serious bullshit. David Duchovny has decided to play dumb and completely deny that he and Gillian Anderson are dating – or that they ever were, for that matter. We all know it’s a bold-faced lie and I’m not having any of it. NOPE. Sorry.
From TV Line:
“The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird. It’s never happened, it’s not going to happen, we’re friends,” he says. “I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade, but no, it’s not gonna happen. It hasn’t happened.”
“I see Gillian, I kiss her hello. She’s my friend. If somebody gets a picture of that, if it’s on stage and she comes up to sing with me, I’m going to kiss her hello,” he says. “I wish the show would be enough. I don’t understand why people want more from Gillian and I. I really don’t.”
He adds: “You can have Mulder and Scully, and that’s gonna have to be enough.”
Yeah, for some reason, I’m just not buying it. Sure, Mulder & Scully were the original OTP and all the ‘shippers are gonna come out of the woodworks now that The X-Files is coming back, but COME ON. It’s been well known that these two have been fucking around on and off since the mid-90s, and why not? It was the height of their hotness! Though frankly, Gillian just keeps getting hotter with age, whereas the Duke has not been treated as kindly by Father Time. He should be so lucky!
I have to say, that picture above is from the concert Duchovny and his dad band played in NYC last week, where he somehow convinced Gillian to lower herself to playing tambourine on stage. It was PAINFUL. I felt like I was watching my mom and dad totally embarrass me in front of all my friends. But that’s beside the point – they’re still doing it.
