David DuchovnyX-Files star David Duchovny hinted at his struggle with sex addiction in an interview recorded just months prior to his admission to rehab. The actor, who is married to actress Tea Leoni, checked himself into a rehabilitation facility on Thursday in effort to control his rampant sexual urges.

Earlier this year, Duchovny told Best Life magazine: "Twelve years ago, I would have been hard-pressed to understand why I'd want to be involved sexually with one person this long. Before Tea, the longest my intense sexual interest would last would be maybe two years. But the real rewards of a relationship come after you've been together a while. That's where Tea and I are lucky.

"There's nothing wrong with acknowledging the panoply of life's rich experience. You can't control your mind. Why would you want to? You can't feel guilty about being alive, about being a man, about feeling attracted. You can only control your actions."

Duchovny and Leoni share two children, Madelaine, nine, and Kyd, six.
