Okay, okay, so it’s a rumor fueled mostly by fluffy speculation, but if you’re a hardcore X-Files geek like me, I have only four words for you:
The theory goes something like this: Anderson and her longtime partner (and father to her two sons), Mark Griffiths, recently split. FACT. Duchovny and wife Tea Leoni parted after his boning addiction forced him into rehab in 2008. FACT. THEREFORE, [waves hands around in a hypnotic, magician-like fashion] THEY MUST BE TOGETHER NOW. OR SOMETHING. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN.
The site behind these shenanigans cites “a source” who claims “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” in Los Angeles, as well as a cagey interview Anderson gave to The Sunday Times Magazine, in which she seems to indicate that she IS, in fact, dating. Someone. But not necessarily Duchovny. So, umm… yeah.
But dammit you guys, I’m just going to say it: sci-fi/fantasy nerds everywhere need this win after that whole unsavory Bella/Edward trainwreck. Mulder and Scully, on behalf of X-Files fans everywhere I beseech you: do it for us. Do it for nerdy America, for the rabid fan base who loves you so much we didn’t give up on you even after that joke of a second film you guys subjected us to. JUST. DO. IT.
