After many years of almost kissing, having sexy naked alien abduction scenes together, and then…nothing, because the show was over, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny (a.k.a. Mulder and Scully of The X-Files) are rumored to finally be giving us what we want by probing one another. And a million fanboy/girl palms moistened at the very thought.
According to the extremely reputable gossip site CelebDirtyLaundry, the recently single Gillian and her kids are reportedly “shacking up” with the notorious casanova in Los Angeles. (Do kids even have the ability to “shack up”? Eeeew.) As evidence, the site cites the omnipresent anonymous source, as well as a recent interview in which Gillian gave a slightly weird answer to a question about her personal life:
I ask if she has a partner at the moment. Her answer is peculiar. “Um…yes…umm…umm…” There is a long pause. “Say yes,” she stutters finally.
Is this one we know about, I say, the father of the two youngest children, or a new one? “Umm, no, no… why do you ask me?” she counters. Earlier, we had been talking about her summer plans when she tells me that what really spells holiday for her is “four or five days with me and my girlfriends, no kids. That time with the girls is just divine, reading books, sitting in the sun, it’s just heaven”. I say that I wonder if she has a new partner because she hadn’t mentioned her chap in relation to the holiday plans. “But I’ve been doing those girlie holidays for the past three years,” she says. So she is still with the father of her two youngest children? “Yes, yes,” her eyes dart away, she shifts uncomfortably in her chair. It is clear that this topic is being closed down.
Uncomfortable shifting=body language for “I am banging David Duchovny”! It’s an open and shut case!
Of course, it’s definitely a bit of a long shot for anyone who doesn’t live in fan fic land. But as I can still remember thinking “I hope they kiss” before I even really understood what sex was, I really, really hope it’s true. I WANT TO BELIEVE.
