Duchovny enters sex rehab clinic

David Duchovny has entered a rehabilitation clinic for sex addiction, his publicist has confirmed.

In a statement released through his lawyer, the X Files star said he had entered the facility "voluntarily".

He added: "I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family."

The 48-year-actor, who has been married since 1997 to actress Téa Leoni, plays sex-obsessed character Hank Moody on the hit TV series Californication.

The couple have two children together.
