Agent Mulder, Sex Addict

Life imitates art once again.
"X-Files" star David Duchovny, who currently plays a womanizing writer on the cable television series "Californication," said on Thursday he has entered a facility for treatment of sex addiction.

Duchovny, 48, sprang to fame starring as the conspiracy-minded FBI agent Fox Mulder on Fox network's paranormal thriller "The X-Files," which spawned two big-screen spinoffs, one of which ran in theaters this summer.

He has been married since 1997 to actress Tea Leoni, with whom he has a 9-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son.

"I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction," he said in a statement released through his lawyer, Stanton "Larry" Stein. "I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family."
Hey, maybe you'd be addicted too if you were getting busy with Tea Leoni.
Duchovny gave no details of his addiction, but fans got a taste of the actor's sex life last month during a press tour when he revealed that he and Tea got very steamy in a sauna during a getaway weekend in Vancouver.

"We were just all over each other - the sauna wasn't going to stop me," said Duchovny, "and I recovered pretty quickly."

Tea, however, passed out.
He's a machine.
