David Duchovny: ‘Tabloid Tales Aren’t Important’

Posted by Adam

David Duchovny ACTOR David Duchovny doesn’t “take any of it personally” when tabloids write tales about his love life.

The X-Files star — who threatened to sue bosses at Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper after they alluded to an alleged affair with a tennis instructor, but dropped the defamation suit after the publication printed an apology — refuses to let gossip make him angry.

“The tabloid world is busy, and omnivorous, so I was not taken aback by that story,” he said.

“I don’t take any of it personally. I am not saying I enjoy it, but these things exist because people buy them, so it is not for me to say they should not print this stuff. It would be nice for them to get the facts right — but it is just gossip, so it’s not of world-shattering importance.

“It may be hurtful for me personally, but mostly what worries me is that my children are exposed to it. Luckily, they don’t read that British newspaper. But the time will come, with the glory of Google, that they’ll find something some day. ‘Dad, what the f**k is this?’ Hopefully, I’ll be able to explain. In the meantime, I’ll get on with enjoying my family, my work, my interests.”
