fuck yeah david and gillian : documenting the awkward since 2010
Just hours before Gillian Anderson arrived at the 1997 Golden Globe Awards, the news broke that she and husband Clyde had separated. In a show of support and loyalty, co-star David Duchovny escorted her to the ceremony that evening, where she took home the award for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series.

“Oh, we were just two young people who were catapulted into a incredibly successful TV show. The success brought along a lot of stress, and we weren’t always as prepared for that. There were days we got along very well and had a lot of fun, but there were days we couldn’t see each other’s face anymore. That’s very human, if you ask me.”
Gillian Anderson, 2008
“David Duchovny is not happy. He stands behind Gillian Anderson in a bare-bones photo studio, resigned to having roll after roll of pictures taken on what promises to be another 16-hour day.
“Anderson, sensing Duchovny’s mood, looks down at his hand on her left shoulder and tries to brush it away, as if it were a mosquito. Then she turns and jumps into his arms, laughing, looking like a little girl making trouble for a protective older brother. Startled to be holding her, the smile on Duchovny’s face is forced no longer.
“‘When we first started X-files,’ says Anderson, ‘I was so green. It was only my second time in front of a camera. I desperately needed someone to show me the ropes. And he did that. He was wonderful.’”

A little inebriation goes a long way.
I stayed up for two nights straight when Wondercon happened. I’d say 80% because of this.CookieCris
Earlier this year the tabloids suggested that you and Gillian don’t get on because you had a fling together when the series first started.
“Well. [Chuckles] That’s a good theory. That shows more imagination than the recent one. At least that shows some storytelling. Some back story. That was a good one, yeah.”

“It’s great. You know, it was great then, too. It’s like a sibling relationship. And I never had siblings. I had brothers and sisters that started when I was 13. So I was out of the house and didn’t have that experience.
“But it was always this natural love/hate — wait, no, ‘hate’ is too big of a word - but there was always something. You get what I mean? It was just a natural relationship over a period of time.
“I think now we’ve grown up. We’re older. And I think we are more appreciative of the relationship, period, and the unique experience that we had together - and that we have an opportunity to continue that and foster it. We’ve always loved each other, and we’re always going to be at battle sometimes.”

“I think [our relationship] is one of those ones that’s so kind of longstanding and so many things are unspoken. It’s almost familial in that way. I’m a firm believer that you recreate your family situations at work. She’s a combination of a few people. I won’t say who. But it’s complicated.”
