Duchovny Loves Virtual Shopping

DAVID DUCHOVNY is hooked on shopping by catalogue and admits he's a sucker for TV infomercials.

The former X-FILES star claims he rarely shops for clothes in stores anymore because he prefers flicking through catalogues to pick out his wardrobe.

He says, "It comes in a big package and it's like Christmas. I like to forget I've ordered stuff and then it comes in a big package, and I'm like, 'Oh, someone is sending me free stuff. It's all for me. '"

And Duchovny has now graduated into calling up and ordering things he sees on the TV. He adds, "I purchased some work out material - everyone looks so good in the ads. I succumb to the infomercials. I see it and call my manager's assistant and ask her to get it for me. "

Duchovny's latest big purchase is a paddling pool he saw advertised on television. He adds, "We're so tired of having a heart attack trying to blow up pools for my daughter and this thing is like pull a lever and there you are. " (KL/WNV/KW)
