David Duchovny Enters Rehab For Sex Addiction


Californication star David Duchovny is currently at a rehabilitation center for sex addiction.

“I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction,” the former X-Files star’s lawyer Stanton “Larry” Stein tells People. “I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family.”

Duchovny, 48, has been married to actress Téa Leoni for over 10 years and have two children together–daughter Madelaine, 9, and son Kyd, 6.

The Californication premiere of season two is set for September 28, 2008. Duchovny plays womanizing writer Hank Moody on the Showtime series.

Back in May, Best Life reported, “There was the time [Duchovny] confessed to a reporter about his fascination with hotel porn (‘I like to watch other people —k’ was the exact quote) and rumors swirled that he was a sex addict.”

@48 “Time to redefine what’s allowed in a relationship you hetero types….or just keep people cheating behind their partner’s backs as almost always happens in every couple whether you like it or not”

WTF – Hollywood doesn’t represent the rest of the world. My parents, grandparents, friends and my sister and her bf all manage to stay faithful in their relationships. It depends on the culture the couple is surrounded by. No one stated David cheated on Tia anyway.

To Celine #51 -

I must correct you re: HBO’s “Red Shoe Dairies” & Duchovny’s role in it. HE wasn’t the one having sex with anyone. His character “lost” the woman he loved (can’t remember how) and that caused him to place an ad in the paper asking women to send him letters (diaries) of THEIR sexual experiences. At the end of the episode Duchovny’s character would say something to his dog, Jake, & end credits would role.

OMG guys, after reading all your comments, I took one look at his picture again and the look of his eyes is so scary… like he’s going to do something perverted. yikes! weired..weired! the ugly thing about it is he’s looking right at you! mama! help!

Watching x-films doesn’t make you a sex addict…either he cheated on his wife numerous times or she can’t take having sex all day long anymore…now which is it???

It was a not-so-blind item on PHs site almost a year ago. Didn’t shock me then. I assumed it was common knowledge. He’s thinking too much of himself if he thinks the press would care. He could’ve slipped away for treatment and saved his family and himself some face..

what sort of things about their s e x life did david and tea openly talk about?

i have never seen an interview/ read an interview where they discuss their bedroom lives.

any links anyone?

I admire his sincerity and wish him and his family all the best in this very difficult time. Love X-FILES. Be strong David.

I wonder if his wife made him do this. Because, I don’t think you ever get rid of a sexual addiction. That’s not something you can really talk someone out of.

sexy David, you’re obviously young and single. ******** everyone in sight, just cause “it’s what guys do”, IS wrong, on many levels. It’s fine IF it’s agreed to by the GF, wife, whatever. BUT it’s hurtful if it’s NOT ok to her. And hurting people is just wrong. It’s NOT just about sex to most women. Not to mention STD’s, etc. Ewwww.

This jerk has obviously deeply hurt his wife, if he’s admitting his addiction to the world, and trying to save his marriage.

And just for the record, there are a lot of men I know, who are monogamous and happy. Sex is wonderful with the same person in a truly committed relationship.

I wonder if his “addiction” is somehow affecting his kids?

Tea seems to be enjoying herself with Billy Bob Thornton at his concerts

i cannot believe david freaking duchovny is a sex addict and i am stuck in ohio.

Sorry to hear that he have this problem.At least he admitted the problem and got help for it.Hope his marriage survives this. She seens like a strong woman and family person.Hope this will pass.But it will not stop me from liking him and an actor. Some people have done worse.Ithought sienne miller and rachel that problem by now.

This is really not funny at all, unless you have zero fear of God and no respect for marriage or the opposite sex. Our bodies are not garbage and only useful for temporary lustful acts. Lust is powerful and must be under control. I hope and pray that David can recover from this and not lose all that he has in the process.

The crazy thing is no matter who you are, all sorts of men struggle with pornography. If you believe in God then it’s called fornication and a sin outside of marriage. It has lasting effects on families and fuels an industry that only cares about money at the expense of (men’s) souls.

I feel a minimum addiction and I’m learning to either shut off the computer/tv and or find something else to indulge in. VERY difficult, especially with a pregnant wife who is sleepy alot. If it became any worse I would go into some recover program too. Despite what the media may suggest, women are not sex objects and men are not sex obsessed apes.

61, I hope you are totally wrong. This would be terrible to have these poor kids more involved that they already are.

He really reminds me of a young Michael Douglas in many ways, and he too was addicted. Probably still is. How in the world do these things get leaked? His wife is so cute and funny. I loved her in the Jim Carey movie.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the only difference between Hollywood and the rest of the country is that everyone KNOWS what they do!! I’m very happy for you that you know so many faithful couples. About 25% are faithful, according to study after study. And it’s not just the men who cheat!

You’d be surprised to find out who has cheated, too. Often the women most offended at the idea of beautiful woman flirting with their husband (instead of taking it as a compliment), because they know THEY have cheated and don’t trust others to remain faithful. I was sure my brother and his boring wife were faithful. Nope — bro found a more assertive woman one night on a business trip and indulged his wish for something with a spine in his bed. I didn’t know for years and years (they are now happily together since my sis-in-law has grown up).

So get a clue and stop thinking that real life is Little House on the Prairie. It’s not — real life is Peyton Place.

he always had that fame, even before the legendary “X-FILES”…
speaking of which there´s a story about the final auditions for THE X-FILES where they were 2 guys and 5 women left… he has admit that he was picking up the girls, even gillian anderson has confirm that story… (no that he did that with her)…
the thing is eventhough all the storiesconcierning this with David…im still in shock!

explain it… he’s a pedophile that’s why he’s behind a cure

He has had this problem forever. It has never been a secret that he is a sex adict, maybe he is just finally getting help. I think the timing is a bit odd for him to be getting treatment now, but I doubt it is a publicity stunt. I think it would be too embarrasing for his wife. Hope they can work through it.

Well at least he isn’t gay!! LOL!! Seriously, he’s one of my favorite actors. Hopefully being in rehab will help him with his problem. I just want to know how you treat something like that. Does it mean he will never have sex again once he’s treated?????

By the way, woud I be considered an addict since I have sex once or twice a day , everyday and I’m over 40?? LMAO

LMFAOOOOOOOO!! OMFG! i’m sorry.. i’m like peeing myself lauffhing right noww. addicted to sex? Just keep doing…. it i’m sure your wife doesn’t mind.. so like after are you just gonna like STOP having sex… so you won’t relapse… lmfao

Fucck this is sooo fuccking funny..

Big ******* Deal. He admitted to being a sex addict years ago in an article. Why are you people so shocked? He is just a person. He has flaws just like we all do. Get over it .
