Duchovny -- So That's What the X Stands For

8/29/2008 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Duchovny has had just a little too much Californication.

The actor says he's entered rehab for sex addiction. "I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction. I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family," he says in a statement.

Duchovny is married to actress Tea Leoni, and the couple has two children.

LMFAO    

This is a kind of condition that requires understanting, I suppose you have never had a psycological problem eh Metoo 27# judging be your uneducated comment. It's idiots like you who do not see problems like this as something that can be worked on, but instead choose to label and stigmatise people who have troubles far greater that you!

oh_yeah    

Way back when Duchovny announced his engagement to Tea, papa Duchovny gave an interview that went something like " this will never last, he can't stay faithful to anyone, he's a dog, yada yada". Tea should have listened to her father-in-law.

Just surprised it took this long

To those who keep saying why make this sort of announcement if you really want privacy---generally these types of press releases are what another post mentioned---preemptive.

Either David's people know that some media outlet already has pictures or something that they are about to release, or they fear what some tabloids will print if something is found out........so they issue their own press release in order to take away the "scoop" factor for the tabloids. This way they have at least a little control in how this story is presented to the public.

I mean, look at how the tabloids twist the truth all the time........celebrities are pretty much forced into revealing their lives through their own press releases if they don't want exaggerated stuff printed.

love the duchonvy    

Okay so this guy is the HOTTEST EVER. Sexy and Smart. So he has a minor flaw - whatev!!! I'm hoping TMZ will do their homework because I feel like I remember like 10yrs ago their being some report on one of those tabloid shows about Duchovny being apart of some fetish and/or soft core porn when he was young??? Anyone remember this???

If he truly has a sex addiction, he has been cheating all along. Maybe his wife finally caught him, and has told him to seek out help, or its over. This is why he entered a facility, and has told the truth.

People can be addicted to sex, like anything else, so I can believe this. He probably loves his family but cant seem to get his urges under control. He must be bad, to enter a facility.

I always wondered what his wife thought with him always being so snuggly with Scully!
Anway, all joking aside, I really really hope he didnt cheat on her. I've always like to say how
lucky I've always thought Tea Leoni was. Not only is she totally gorgeous herself but she's married to DD!!!
How sad this whole thing can end up being. Please David, I dont want to hear that you ended up cheating
on your wife!! I've always liked you!!!

I guess when you have a big one, you want to spread the love.

Rich famous people have too much spare time on their hands. If you give any random person 50 million dollars and they only have to "work" 3 months a year ( which is basically smiling for a camera ), that person will probably develop some weirdnesses. Regular working perople don't have the time or energy to be sex addicts.

I don't believe it for a minute. Very convenient, what with the theme and upcoming season premiere of his (awful) TV show.
