Remember that infamous Rolling Stone cover with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in bed together? (If not, see above.) It was at the height of their X-Files heat when FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully were TV’s favorite “It” will-they-or-won’t-they couple. Well, much to the still existing delight of several nerds out there I’m sure, it turns out that life imitates art. The gossip site Celeb Dirty Laundry is reporting that Duchovny and Anderson are now shacked up together.
Gillian Anderson isn’t wasting any time. Just as news breaks that she’s split from her boyfriend of six years, Mark Griffiths, CDL has learned that she’s living with her X Files co-star David Duchovny in Los Angeles.
A source exclusively told CDL that David and Gillian have been in a serious relationship for some time now and she and her children are shacking up with the Californication actor.
So dust off that old X-Files fan fic because no matter how many depraved ways you put Mulder and Scully together, Duchovny is a recover sex addict so he’s probably been there/done that. All kidding aside, we fans who remember the 90s are punching the air right now. Or to put it in terms millenials will understand: they’re our K-Stew and R-Patz. The chaste romance of a generation finally realized in real life.
