Actress Téa Leoni is considering ditching her last name to take on that of her husband's, DAVID DUCHOVNY. The JURASSIC PARK 3 (2001) beauty, whose real name is ELIZABETH TEA PANTALEONI, reckons her name would sound better as TEA DUCHOVNY.
The actress admits she thought about hyphenating, but opted against it when she found Leoni-Duchovny to be too much of a mouthful. And former X-FILES star Duchovny is elated with his wife's decision to take on his name, explaining,
"I think she should do it. It's the only way my name will ever be on an OSCAR. " (RGS/LAT/KMW)
