David Duchovny Seeks Treatment for Sex Addiction
David Duchovny has voluntarily entered a treatment facility to deal with sex addiction. The star of Californication (which now, sadly, carries a whole different connotation) told People that he requests "respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation." This situation comes on the heels of a less-than-extraordinary performance for Duchovny's summer movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe. Californication, for which Duchovny won a Golden Globe, is set to premiere its second season on Sept. 28. Ironically, a brand-new promotional campaign hitting (among other places) the New York City subway system proclaims his sexually promiscuous alter ego to be "In Way Too Deep." ( See photo here.) A Showtime rep tells TVGuide.com, "We're not altering our second season promo plans - and that includes the subway ads." Duchovny is married to actress Tea Leoni, with whom he has two children, 9-year-old West and 6-year-old Kyd. In the following video (at the 0:45 mark), Duchovny speaks with TVGuide.com about his role on Californication. - Erin FoxRelated: " Nothing Pleasurable About Real-Life Sex Addiction " David Duchovny Talks Sex and Addiction
