Hollywood's Fairy-Tale Affair
These days, celebrity couples are all the rage. They light up the Hollywood scene, and though we fight it, many of us can't help but get caught up in the drama of their romances. Unfortunately, many of these fairytale twosomes come and go like yesterday's news.
Not so for David Duchovny and Tea Leoni. These two seem to have perfected real-life love, in spite of the glitz, crowds and media that perpetually swirl around them.
They recently did a photo shoot and interview with Redbook for the April cover, where their casual intimacy and thriving romance was captured for all to see. And according to an article from iVillage, they couldn't keep their hands off each other, snuggling, gazing into each other's eyes, and talking closely--even when the camera wasn't rolling.
And when it comes to family, this celebrity couple keeps it real. Through eight years of marriage David, 44, and Tea, 38, have managed to keep a pretty low profile as far as celebrity couples go. They told Redbook they've focused on raising their children, 6-year-old daughter Madelaine West and 2-year-old son Kyd Miller. Their family is very close, and by all accounts, they thrive on spending time together.
But lately they've been front and center. Duchovny's big-screen debut as director and writer for "House of D," is set for limited release on April 15. According to the Associated Press, the film is a coming-of-age drama set in Duchovny's boyhood haunts around Greenwich Village. Duchovny plays a man looking back on a tragic time from his youth with his mother, who is paralyzed by grief over her husband's death.
The fact that Leoni plays the role of his mother gives the film an additional twist of interest- -though the two never share screen time.
What made their relationship so close? According to the Redbook interview, it was the three- week phone romance they had before they even met. "On the phone, you can't do anything but talk," David says. "You aren't watching a movie, you aren't making out. All you have is conversation."
But this couple's far from all talk--the chemistry is apparently still going strong. David told INSTYLE Magazine his fantasy bed was a hammock, to which Tea replied, "The sexiest thing about them is they're dangerous. We have two. One is tied to the porch; if we pull too hard, we might bring the house down!"
