David Duchovny Topics
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.
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.
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.
In the morning I work out, or look at my script if I need to. Then I get something to eat. I'm pretty much a vegetarian. Diet is important in my job. You have a commitment to a 10-month schedule, and you can't stay home even one day, you really can't. It would cost the production company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
I try to balance having to live in this painful physical world and trying to open up channels to another world. When you experience the channels, you know they're true. But when you talk about them, you're in great danger of sounding like a knucklehead.
Showbiz can be silly, joking while the world is in such distress, even going about one's daily business while the world is begging for the big answers but sometimes you just have to be thankful for a life where you get to hold a baby lion.
I poop in the backyard. Well, we recycle. We have solar energy. I drive an electric car. I wear disposable diapers. I don't know. That's a lot. We try to set an example. Unfortunately, you have to have the means to be green. That's what has to change in this world. It should be cheaper to be green. I can afford to put solar energy in and I can afford to drive an electric car because I can also have a gas car if I need to drive more than eighty miles in a day. So that's too bad.
My idea of Hell would be, you go to Heaven and you're yourself up there.
Four hours it takes to film for one hour of show, inside the actor's studio. There was a guy in the front row who slept from hour two to hour three and iI can't say I blamed him. I might have even dozed off in the middle of a couple of my answers. My navel was sunburnt from having me gaze at it so long.
If you're a young, single actor, you're an easy target...But I'm single, I've always been single, and I'm not a monk. So take your shots.
When I saw my white ass on the screen I saw I should have spray-tanned and maybe waxed.
You're raising a kid and you give it food and shelter and, most importantly, you give it the feeling that it's special. I think people react to celebrities like that - I mean, they treat celebrities like children.
Women's fashion is a subtle form of bondage. It's men's way of binding them. We put them in these tight, high-heeled shoes, we make them wear these tight clothes and we say they look sexy. But they're actually tied up.
Willie Mays was the best ever. When I was in college I once made a catch like the one Mays made over his head. Sometimes when I'm lying in bed at night I think about it. It still makes me warm.
The key is to get to know people and trust them to be who they are. Instead, we trust people to be who we want them to be - and when they're not, we cry.
Sex is great until you die, but it's never as great as it was when you were a kid, when it was a mystery.
People think celebrities don't have to worry about human things like sickness and death and rent. It's like you've traveled to this Land of Celebrity, this other country. They want you to tell about what you saw.
One of the nice things about acting is that it allows you to open up to the other people within you.
On the one hand, people think they own kids; they feel that they have the right to tell the kids what to do. On the other hand, people envy kids. We'd like to be kids our whole lives. Kids get to do what they do. They live on their instincts.
My entire life has been an attempt to get back to the kind of feelings you have on a field. The sense of brotherhood, the esprit de corps, the focus - there being no past or future, just the ball. As trite as it sounds, I was happiest playing ball.
