Fictional Break-Up Of The Week
Gillian Anderson denied all those recent rumours that she and David Duchovny were dating in a Guardian interview this week, but it seems she would have been happy to play along for a while if her old X-Files mate hadn’t revealed the truth first. “You mean me and David [Duchovny], romantically?
