(2009, on Californication (2007)) I remember getting the script and thinking it was very funny in a way that hearkens back to more adult films of the '70s, like Shampoo (1975) or The Last Detail (1973), where you have an actual functioning adult navigating adult problems. When I looked around at the kind of stuff that was available to me, or even not available to me, the comedies were often that man-child thing, with boys in men's bodies navigating almost adolescent issues. So this was the kind of stuff I'd been wanting to do, and not necessarily the kind of movies being made at the time. It happened on television for me rather than in the movies, but it was the kind of material I wanted to do.
(2009) Full Frontal (2002) was a very short experience in my life. I believe I might have had two or three days filming on it. I think Steven Soderbergh shot it in two weeks, but that might be overstating it. Steven was somebody I had known for a long time. One of the first auditions I ever had was for Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989). And I don't even know how I got into that audition, because I would have just started acting, but I read for Steven, and Steven wrote a very nice letter to Henry Jaglom - who's the guy I did my first film with, New Year's Day - saying that he had really enjoyed my audition, and blah blah blah. I always treasured that, especially once I saw Steven's work. And Steven had always said, "We'll do a movie together", and finally this project comes along, and he says, "It's about you! It's about your character!" I said, "Great, I can't wait to do it." And then I got the script and I just had like two scenes. It is about my character turning 40 or something, but I'm hardly in it, so I was like "Thanks a lot, buddy.".
(2009, on landing The X-Files (1993)) Well, there's a case in point. Way back in the audition process for that, I had a discussion with Chris Carter, because he wanted me to do well in front of the network. Just like you see in The TV Set, there's this kind of weird, barbaric ritual of reading people in a room in front of the network, suits and all. I think this might have been the third or fourth time I would have read in front of a network, not just for The X-Files (1993), but for other pilots that had come and gone without me. And Chris said, to help me out, "This guy's irreverent". I always remember there was a stage direction-and this'll really date the pilot-where Mulder was described as more MTV VJ than FBI agent. And to me, that was the key, that this guy didn't give a shit about what people thought of him. And that's, always a fun thing to play. When you don't care, you don't care. Because we all care what other people think, and we gravitate toward those characters in movies or TV who don't care. They have a strange kind of power and allure. And that was the key to Mulder for me, his sense of humor, and that he would bring that to FBI proceedings, or he'd bring it to Scully. You know, he was always willing to joke. And the key to that, in turn, was the desperate sincerity of his quest. So if you combine those two things, the emotional hurt over the loss of his sister, and his feeling responsible for that, combined with this "fuck you" attitude, was the character. Those were the two halves of the ring for that character. And that lasted throughout the whole thing.
[on how his relationship with Gillian Anderson is now] It is very good, yes it is. We have a very good relationship. Different than when it was when we were shooting The X-Files (1993), we are both not exhausted all the time.
People say the world changes all the time, and yet human nature remains the same. I think what's changed is the size of our cell phones.
[on his on screen chemistry with Gillian Anderson] It is nice and natural with Gillian, It was nice to work with her again. I don't know why we have such good chemistry, it is really mystical. We have always worked really well together. It is always easy to work with her.
[on one of his scenes from Evolution (2001)] Any scene where I can use a pipette, I'm happy.
Fame does lead to money, which I don't have a close relationship with. I'm the kind of guy who never sees the money -- it all goes somewhere else. I don't understand it, I don't like to deal with it. I have a fear of not having it, because I grew up without it.
[on The X-Files (1993)] I get tired of people asking if I believe in what's presented on the show. They don't ask the guys on ER (1994) if they believe in euthanasia. (from October 1997 "Chicago Tribune" interview)
[on his role as Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files (1993)] It's pretty workaday, people don't seem to realize: You get up, you take a shower, you read the paper, you play Mulder. (from June 1998 "Entertainment Weekly" interview)
I think I'm nice enough to look at, but I think people make a big deal about my appearance. I think it was like hypnosis, like all of the sudden everybody's been trained: "Okay, now cluck like a chicken!" "Okay, now say David Duchovny's handsome!" I mean, I was a normal-looking kid, and whoever you are and whatever you look like, there are always things you want to change. I just remember that I wished I was blond. And I wished that my nose were smaller and my lips were smaller and my eyes were bigger... you know, everything.
I'm frightened by the possibilities of my own lack of talent.
If you're smart, you'll always be humble. You can learn all you want, but there'll always be somebody who's never read a book who'll know twice what you know.
I've always been overly concerned about what people think which has resulted in a lot of inner turmoil. I try not to give a damn but inside I'm a huge ball of worry.
Privacy is something I have come to respect. I think when I was younger I wanted to tell everybody everything, because I thought I was so damn interesting. Then I heard the snoring.
I'm half Jewish, half Scottish. It's hard for me to buy anything.
I never, ever, ever cook. And I would never eat anything I might cook.
