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.

Boo hoo, Dave. . .
Any "real psychiatrist" will tell you there's no such thing as a sex addiction. You’re not going to have any physical withdrawals if you stop having sex. It’s called “bad behavior,” and new age psychobabble has turned every obnoxious bit of it into a cottage industry in order to make money. God forbid anybody should feel terrible about themselves, they might actually improve.

They all claim their cheating is due to sex addiction rather than just poor impulse control. Make it due to an "illness" rather than just sleazy lifestyle and poor moral character. But thats Hollywood....
P.S. Look at that man now....he's sooooooo ugly.

So now we know why the local S.P.C.A. removed all pets from the home. Sounds like the X-Files was missing a couple of "X's!" Let's see you have Tea Leoni at home and you have to go to a Rehab facility for "sex addiction?" Dude do what I do.......switch hands! But my best advice???...........next time you have an "addiction".......shut the f**k up......there are things we don't care about and don't need to know about and your overactive little swimmers are some of them.

I wish him and his family, good luck.
This is not his first time going to re-hab with this problem. I hope it help's, and that he and his family can heal.
Sexual addiction, is not necessiarly sex that is considered perverted. American people have such up-tight view's of what is considered normal or sick when itn come's to intercourse. Hey people grow up, get a life, and read a book on the subject, you might be surprised to learn a few things about the subject,as well as, yourselves.
Good luck David.

I've never understood this freak's appeal to women. If he wasn't an actor, nobody would even look twice at him. Ugly as a mud fence. I heard a long time ago what a creep he is and what a huge porn collection he has. Tea knew what she was getting into, but she thought it was a turn on and that she'd be his last one. Ask Denise Richards how it worked out for her with that super pervert Charlie Sheen.

To all you people claiming that DD is not "hot" enough, nor is Tea...F--- OFF!! I've been a fan of David Duchovny FOREVER, all the way back to the original "Red Shoe Diaries" movie that spawned the SHO series years ago. He is a brilliant actor, beautiful human being, and ALL of us have weaknesses...in one form or another. There are NO confirmed reports that he actually cheated, NO photos, NO evidence at ALL that he did anything unbecoming...save for his own admitting his PERSONAL issue, and requesting privacy for himself and his family. If you don't think he's hot, or talented, or anything important...go F--- YOURSELVES! He IS hot. He is VERY talented. He is a Princeton graduate, and definitely has more brains than MOST of you who post here. "First! FIRST!" doesn't count for CRAP. Having the balls to come out and PUBLICLY admit that you have some sort of issue? Priceless. With any luck, he's addicted to sex (or whatever that really means) because he's been reading my Fanfic...along with all the rest of us talented people who do something CONSTRUCTIVE with our free time and talents. I wish David and his family NOTHING but the best, and I will continue to support the XF and ALL of his projects whole-heartedly and with much pride. I love you, David...SCREW anyone who doesn't understand.

FYI...Kitty? You're a dumb bitch (no really...Kitty? Are you fixed?) with nothing better to do than speculate on something that you obviously don't understand, nor do you have any iota of caring for your fellow humans. DD is NOT ugly, nor is he sick and twisted. Having a porn collection is quite healthy, actually...as is masturbating daily, as are any NUMBER of sexual activities. I have a feeling you haven't been laid in quite some time...why don't you go meow up someone else's pole, honey? LMAO....
