David Duchovny Loves New York… and His Wife

DAVID Duchovny’s out in a new film which opens Friday. It’s called “The Joneses.” His wife is played by Demi Moore, their kids by Amber Heard and Ben Hollingsworth. He was on the set of his TV show and only had a few minutes and sort of hurriedly explained the plot. I, sort of in a muddled way, got the plot. And now I must try to sort of explain it to you while he’s already away sort of seducing someone on “Californication.”

“It’s about a hypothetical family put there to inspire conspicuous consumption,” he said. “They’re planted in the community to sell their lifestyle. They’re not really a family. Their bodies and homes are full of product placement — sneakers, jewelry, electronics, clothing, cosmetics.

“It’s basically an idea that I had,” he said. “These are like moles. Stealth moles. Like a cell. It’s a satire. We’re not talking science-fiction here. It’s a comedy.”
And at the end? It falls apart?

“Well, by then it satisfies a few different experiences.”

A disembodied voice came on saying David only had a minute more to chat with me.

He talked about his wife, Tea Leoni. “We had a tough year and a half. We split up for a bit. We’ve been together 13 years. But we’re back. And living in New York. In New York, you don’t exist in a car. Your whole life isn’t planned. You can walk the streets. People smile or nod. You can see life. People don’t bother you.

“My mother lives here. It’s funny. Twenty years I’ve been in the business and, as I’m walking along, someone will say ‘Hi,’ and I’m polite so I give him a ‘Hi’ back, and my mother will say, ‘Where do you know him from?’

“Right now I’m in LA because I’m taping my show. But I love New York. My kids go to an Episcopal private school.”

The disembodied voice came on again with a crisp: “You have to go now, David.”

To which he then said to me: “Y’know, I always wanted to be a Knick. And I don’t think it’s too late.”

Duchovny lives a new, calmer life

From USA Today: David Duchovny says he’s a changed man.
“I’m filled with humility and gratitude,” says the actor, who shot to fame on The X Files before being treated for sex addiction in 2008. “Before, I was focused on winning and deserving. I would say, ‘Oh, I deserve that.’ That’s not grateful. Grateful is, ‘Wow. I’m lucky. That’s fantastic.’ ”

Duchovny, who turns 50 in August, is sitting in a West Hollywood hotel suite discussing his new film, The Joneses (in theaters Friday). He plays Demi Moore’s fake husband in this romantic comedy/biting satire about stealth marketing.

As he discusses his character’s adolescent-like approach to life, Duchovny can’t help but reflect on his own final push toward maturity.

“I still feel like I haven’t grown up,” he says. “But I can judge from my work that I’m a lot more of a man than I was five years ago. Maybe I’m late. Maybe I’m on time. I’m happy it happened. It’s something you have to do. I paid attention. I didn’t coast. I asked some hard questions. I took some hard answers. I learned humility.”

David is a Strict Dad

HE’S the perfect dad in his new movie – but X Files star David Duchovny had to beat his personal demons to win back his own happy marriage.

The X Files star shocked fans when he announced he was going into rehab to fight his sex addiction. And many predicted his marriage was at an end.

Before he wed actress Tea Leoni in 1997, the TV star was linked to a string of women, including his X Files co-star Gillian Anderson.

But his marriage to Tea seemed a meeting of minds, as well as good looks. David went to prestigious Yale University until he abandoned his PhD for acting.

He was introduced to brainbox Tea over the phone by their agent, and the two started dating.

“She sent me a song by Ween called P*** Up A Rope,” he said. “She sang it to me over the phone. It’s really a funny song and the lyrics are really beautiful.”

It probably doesn’t get played on the radio much, but the song seemed to work its magic. The couple wed just nine weeks later and have two children: Madelaine West, 10, and Kyd Miller, seven, who are called by their middle names.

But less than two years ago, David stunned friends and fans when he announced he was going into rehab and it was discovered than the couple had been separated for months. The 12-year marriage between David, 49, and Tea 43, appeared to be over and out.

But love and kids brought them back together. Tea visited David during his rehab and gradually the couple started to be seen in public again.

Last year, they celebrated their healed marriage with a quality time holiday, packing their children into a minivan and touring the USA.

“It was a lot of fun. We were cooped-up with the kids in a big bus and we got to know one another very, very well,” said the star. “Eleven days was the exact right amount of time and I’d never seen the Grand Canyon. I’d never seen Niagara Falls. Maybe one day my children will look back on it and love it.”

David regards his marital problems as a private matter.

But it’s ironic that in his TV show Californication he also plays a dad who struggled with women and commitment.

No wonder fans have wondered if David feels that sexy dad Hank Moody crossed the line between fiction and reality.

David says that’s not the case. “The things that I do on the show have never had anything to do with my personal life,” he said. “There has never been any kind of parallel.”
Unlike other, more prickly, stars, David understands the interest from fans in his private life.

“I try to be grateful for the interest – and sometimes I try to think of it as people actually caring,” said the down-to-earth star. “The problem comes for people around me that didn’t ask for that scrutiny. My wife is an actress, so she’s aware, but for the kids, it becomes sticky.


Duchovny on squeezing movies in around Californication

From The Orlando Sentinel: I talked with David Duchovny about his new movie, The Joneses, and focused on his relationship to the film’s satiric warning about the dangers of marketing and a consumerist lifestyle for the print version of that story.

But that didn’t leave room for him talking about his zeitgeist-tackling cable series, Californication, or his future plans or what car one should drive to Be Like Dave. So that part of our talk is below.

“I am so (s%^$$&) at the zeitgeist,” Duchovny says. “I didn’t see The X-Files coming. I didn’t Californication catching on.

“I thought a couple of movies I’d done were going to be huge hits and they weren’t. I’m really bad at that. I consider myself a smart guy, and yet I have no clue if something I’m doing is going to catch on.

“I realized, at some point, that there is no repeating of that X-Files thing. It’s luck. It’s Avatar, the planets aligning. I’m not going to try and top that.

“When I got off the show, I was thinking, ‘How am I going to top it?’ Then I realized that wasn’t going to happen.I said ‘No more TV’ Fine. But cable started doing these great niche shows – Sex and the City, The Sopranos – that were giving you more creative freedom than you get on broadcast TV or the movies.


David Duchovny weighs in on the next season of ‘Californication’ and beyond

At a press conference in Los Angeles for his new independent film, The Joneses, David Duchovny just couldn’t duck Californication questions from pesky television reporters who wanted to know just where Hank Moody could go next season, as well as how long Duchovny would consider keeping the character alive.

“Last year was a descent. We went as far down as we could and still keep it a comedy,” Duchovny shared with a chuckle in his voice. “And we’re not trying to make this a drama, so this year will be about rising up.” It would pretty much have to, we guess!

The actor, who currently lives in New York with his family, only comes out here to Los Angeles only periodically to shoot. “It’s not the X-Files ten month long shoot,” Duchovny explained. “It’s almost like a vacation!” Therefore, he enjoys shooting Californication more than some of the other projects in his past.

That being said, then, just how long does Duchovny think– or want the show to keep going? After all, the show that truly put him on the map– the aforementioned X-Files– lasted for nearly a decade. “It will get canceled before I get tired of it,” he smiled into the sea of reporters.

But realistically? He thinks the show, which has completed three seasons can easily go to six or seven, keeping Hank Moody– and Duchovny himself– in our homes for years to come.
