David Duchovny Admitted To Rehab For Addiction To Sex

Wow, here is one you don't hear everyday in Hollywood.

We're all familiar with the constant stream of celebrities entering rehab for alcohol, drugs, and who knows what, but "X Files" star David Duchovny has checked himself in for an addiction to sex. Really?

The story was first reported by People Magazine on their website.

In a prepared statement released Thursday by his lawyer, Stanton Stein, Duchovny said he entered the rehabilitation center on his own, saying:

"I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction. I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family."

Duchovny, 48, currently portrays the sex-obsessed character Hank Moody in the Showtime series "Californication", whose second season starts September 28. This must truly be a situation of life imitating art, or a huge publicity stunt.

Duchovny recently appeared in the film "The X Files: I Want to Believe" in July, starring alongside Gillian Anderson. He has been married to actress Tea Leoni since 1997, and the couple has two children, daughter Madelaine West, 9, and son Kyd who is 6.

Duchovny does have an untitled television project in the works for later this year starring with A.J. Holyfield, where he plays a faculty member at a junior high school with an over-achieving student who turns his school's A.V. Club into a hard-hitting news show.

We knew things could get strange in Hollywood, and suspect there may be more to this story then we know at this point. We'll keep you in the loop as we learn more.
