As a PR person, I guarantee they have some sort of PR representation and get "light coaching" on how to answer specific things - whether it be about a project or a personal issue. At times, answers to potential tricky questions will be prepared in advance, just in case. But that's mostly for more serious situations. Still, I'd bet our duo has been given professional advice on how to answer the "so, y'all doin' it?" inquiry over the years. GA just has a special gift lol.

do you really think that D.D give a damm about what she said in that interviu, i doubt that he even knows about it

A

Well, yes; I should have added that I think it’s likely he wasn’t even told about it, but it’s possible he was (since he seems to be aware of the rumors about them, so someone is keeping him up to date on the Pansexual Icon front).

If he does know, I think his reaction was probably somewhere between “oh geez, for the love of!” and “eh.” We don’t even know his personal feelings on the rumors, although in public he certainly brushes them off and jokes about them.

and the 1m dollar question..what could 'more than an attraction' mean?

A

It seems to me that we have three main options:

1) There is more than attraction; there is the desire to act on it, and maybe an attempt to act on it, currently or in the past — but ultimately a bad idea and not gonna happen.

2) There is more than physical attraction, there is an emotional attraction and attachment because of their history and their connection — but ultimately a bad idea and not gonna happen.

3) She was stumbling over her response and replying to his “a friend attraction,” so what she actually meant to say was “there’s more than a ‘friend’ attraction,” in other words, there’s an attraction with a sexual edge — but ultimately a bad idea and not gonna happen.

I think (3) is the most likely and the only one that really makes sense of the conversation as a whole, rather than just relying on the one line. I think she misspoke but essentially intended to affirm that when she says “attraction” she means “attraction-attraction” and not “buddy-attraction.”

On a scale from "the year was 1998" David to "David's in a good mood" IWTB press junket David, how do you think he is feeling about Gillian's HuffPo interview? I know this will be wildly speculative, but that's why we pay you the big bucks.

A

I can’t say! Definitely closer to “in a good mood” IWTB press junkets David, but not as far up there as Paley “I don’t think I ever told you” David, because, well, I think he prefers to not fan the rumors flame at all by not addressing it.

It’s interesting that, going back to previous discussion, we seem to have a #1 situation here, with Gillian clamming up in all subsequent press and keeping all discussion of David brief.

Makes me wonder if their people (do they HAVE specifically PR people?) give them any guidance on this issue or if they’re just like, “I steer clear of THAT whole mess; that’s all you.” I’m sure that professionally they would feel obliged to give advice along the lines of “what do you want to accomplish? do you want the entire world to be cheering for you to get it on? do you want to be stopped on the street and asked to confirm or deny pool frolicking? reflect and get back to me.”

we need a timeline of events starting from gillian's appearances during awards season and of course to more recent events. Plus, if i may add, david was spotted January 21 via a fan on twitter. Many speculated whether or not he was in LA or NY at the time. But He was wearing an orange shirt and looking very summery.

Someone needs to do this ASAP. DD is in and out of LA so that makes sense. But I didn’t even realize Gillian was there and I’m still having a difficult time placing her at the awards?? Was that when she was wearing the gray lacey number and making people drop dead left and right? 

I WILL ONLY DO THIS ONCE.

He was spotted in Malibu (snowstorm in NY & twatterer is from CA)wearing a Bright Orange Fuck Shirt on January 21st.

(I LOVE THOSE SHOES).

He flew back to NYC on January 26th.

Her friendship with her co-star David Duchovny, who played Fox Mulder, is still strong. 

“I just saw him when I was in Los Angeles,” she says. “We have a very unique friendship. It is different from any other relationship I have, in its intensity. I have spent more hours with him than with any member of my family.”

You answered the "is this really any different?" question better than I ever could. But just to weigh in, all I know is this: I've followed these two since the beginning. I've seen every interview and know every quote - from the painful to sweet, from the rude to flirty. And what Gillian said yesterday was different than ever before. It was bigger and more personal and next level. To some it might not seem like a big deal but it was. I can't put it into words further than that.

fuckyeahdavidgillian:

I agree, it felt momentous. Maybe just the transparency and willingness to admit to the BIG SECRET here that they like each other as people, as opposed to as automatons who carry the show together and whose characters appear on the same screen. It shouldn’t be a big deal, but it is.

Also, that “it’s a nice idea” — she’s not supposed to admit that people would have a good reason to want them together! She’s supposed to act like it’s a terrible irritating crazy idea! She’s not supposed to stare off middle distance and THINK about it!!

I’m putting this under a cut because OBSESSIVE RAAAAMBLIIIIIING for people who are tired of this silliness

Her awkwardness doesn't equal having sex in real life. Her awkwardness comes from her long term crush on David. I don't mean she sits every night and thinks about him. I mean she has an attraction, she likes him as a man - you know what I mean *wink wink* and when she's asked about it she gets all awkward and she also uses those questions to be funny! Jokes don't come out of her easily, so this topic is great to be just funny!

A

Genau!

I don’t think they are having a romance necessarily, but I do think that if they haven’t seen each other naked recently, the response to that question should have been a LOT less awkward.

lolol

but isn’t that precisely the charm of this whole decades-long crisis?

Q

Anonymous asked:

I don't get it. Why inaprop questions will run it?

A

Well, here’s an example of a question that would ruin people’s experience of a David Q&A:

"Gillian said the other week that you guys were attracted to each other as more than friends. What do you have to say about that?"

If anybody thinks that getting blunt or intrusive questions from unknown fans in a setting where he is on the spot and has to choose between feeling respected and being aggressive is David’s idea of a good time, they just haven’t been paying attention.

There’s always the chance he’ll be in a really generous mood and be willing to laugh or play along, but probably not if it also involves undercutting or embarrassing Gillian.

RE: terrible idea to ask David about Gillian... Not only do I agree, but I sincerely hope the majority of ppl attending his panel subscribe to this scientific journal and act accordingly, because I could see non-subscribers asking the inaprop questions and just RUINING it for the rest of us.

I think you need consider the words she spoke, and not just the meanings they seem to imply. She said there maybe more than an attraction--not just friend attraction. This could mean that they did at one point act upon it. And from her bizarre body language, despite what she said, I'm still not sure that they are not currently acting upon it in private, and I'm not even someone who previous to this interview actually thought they were together.

A

I did transcribe that as “more than an attraction,” but from the context of the conversation, listening to it, I’m certain she meant “more than friend attraction,” and may have actually said “more than that attraction” — I’ll have to listen more closely.

They could be acting on it, but I highly doubt she would even come close to admitting that in public. Even Gillian!

As for body language, WELL, WHERE ARE OUR EXPERTS???
