I’ve done some crazy stuff in my time: dined with Kylie Minogue, nattered to a naked Alyssa Milano (oh, AND a kit-less Hugh Jackman), been hit on (kind of) by Portia De Rossi, straddled a dyke’s bike in Mardi Gras, judged the Miss Nude Australia contest, spent an hour being screamed at by Anthony LaPaglia …
And I’ve told you about the time I was mistaken for David Duchovny’s Aussie sex stalker … haven’t I?
It was waaaaay back in the ’90s when I was the production editor of Cosmopolitan magazine. My office was plastered with pictures of The X-Files star and I was just a little bit crazed about him, despite being in a relationship with my ex at the time.
The then-editor of Woman’s Day called me one day and said she’d had a tip-off that I was the Aussie fan who’d been sending David sexually explicit jigsaw puzzles.
And it wasn’t April Fool’s Day.
I was MORTIFIED.
Yes, I’d fantasised about meeting David and us falling madly in love with each other at first sight … I’m not sure what happened to my ex in this scenario … Yes, I’d dreamed about walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes as his date …
I may even have contemplated going on holidays to Vancouver – where The X-Files was filmed – in the hope of running into him … but I had NOT been sending him sexually explicit jigsaw puzzles.
I still think David Duchovny is rather delicious. His last TV series, Californication, had some VERY funny moments … and lots of sexy ones featuring him NAKED.
I was at a local bookshop recently when I noticed he’d written a book. I was kinda tempted to buy it until I saw it was about a cow who undergoes an existential awakening.
He’s also got an album coming out. I MAY buy that. There’s a very funny article about it on Jezebel. Click here to read it
The author, Madeleine Davies, obviously shares my appreciation for David’s talents.
But it’s kinda spooky, don’t you reckon? I think the universe is trying to tell me something …
Have you ever had a celebrity crush?
Song of the day: Bree Sharp “David Duchovny” (oh my gawd, the cameos in this are AMAZING)
