LOS ANGELES – David Duchovny has entered a rehabilitation facility for sex addiction. In a statement released Thursday by his lawyer, Stanton Stein, the actor said he did so voluntarily, adding: “I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family.”
Deal with sex addiction “as a family”?
I suppose it’s possible—addictions do affect the whole family—or he could just be doing some culture-jamming publicity for his show Californication, where he plays a character who is obsessed with women and other vices. We are, after all, talking about the guy who gave Garry Shandling the “Sharon Stone flash” when he played himself on The Larry Sanders Show.
Or maybe I’m making fun of a family tragedy. Hollywood is confusing that way.
