Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are both single and X-Files fans everywhere would die for the two of them to date. Unfortunately, these two have never shared a romantic relationship and they aren’t dating now either. In the past, David Duchovny was married to ex-wife Tea Leoni from 1997–2014. Anderson was married twice – Clyde Klotz (1994-1997) and Julian Ozanne (2004-2007). Even though Anderson has been unsuccessful in marriage, she still hopes to find “the one.” Anderson has three children – 20-year-old Piper from her first marriage to Klotz, and Oscar, 8, and Felix, 6, with her ex-partner Mark Griffiths. Duchovny has two children – daughter Madelaine West Duchovny and son Kyd Miller Duchovny.
When Anderson talked about her dating life to The Daily Telegraph, she stated:
I’m so lucky to have such great work. I’ve got a fantastic life, I have a wonderful relationship with my kids, and there’s nothing lacking, but I’m leaning towards the idea that it’s time for somebody to be brave enough to ask me out … I’ve asked out guys in the past. I remember being in the cinema in the States and I made eye contact with a man going in. I noticed we laughed at same points and seemed to respond in the same way to the same moments.
To me, a married man is simply a no go. I’m not interested in younger men either. I suppose I might ask a man out, but I believe at this stage of my life, it’s better not to manipulate the situation. If it happens, it happens. What I am sure about is that I want my next relationship to be ‘The One.’
As for the big topic at hand – Duchovny and Anderson dating, Duchovny clears up the rumors with TV Line, explaining:
The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird. It’s never happened, it’s not going to happen, we’re friends. I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade, but no, it’s not gonna happen. It hasn’t happened … I see Gillian, I kiss her hello. She’s my friend. If somebody gets a picture of that, if it’s on stage and she comes up to sing with me, I’m going to kiss her hello. I wish the show would be enough. I don’t understand why people want more from Gillian and I. I really don’t … You can have Mulder and Scully, and that’s gonna have to be enough.
So, we’re sorry to tell you, but Anderson and Duchovny have no plans to date each other in real life. You’ll just have to watch them on the small screen together as Mulder and Scully on The X-Files.
