X-File Fans Still Believe That David Duchovny Is Dating Gillian Anderson
X-Files, the show about the supernatural that was popular from 1993 to early 2000, has inspired a strong and enduring cult following. One of the specific reasons for this seems to be the unrequited romantic tension between the two main characters, Mulder and Scully. These characters were played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and unlike many tv shows, at no point did these two ever get romantically involved in the storylines. The curious tension between the two became a source of fascination to many fans, and there seemed to be plenty of borderline intimate moments between the two characters, whether accidental or intended, who knows.
In real life, David Duchovny went on to marry and separate from actress Tea Leoni, and Gillian Anderson went on to a long-term relationship with Mark Griffiths before recently breaking up. Due to the recent end of both of these relationships, rumors have been flying around that the two actors have finally consummated their relations in real life. However, while the rumors are amusing, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are not dating, and probably never will.
