David Duchovny's 'jam' movie
David Duchovny says working with Gillian Anderson again was like enjoying the "jam of appreciation".
The actor - who reprises his role as Fox Mulder alongside Gillian's Dana Scully in new movie 'The X-Files: I Want To Believe' - admits he'd "had enough" of Gillian by the time the original 'X-Files' TV show finished in 2002, but was thrilled to return to the character after a six-year break.
He said: "Gillian and I are not as close as Mulder and Scully but who could be? Nobody is as close as Mulder and Scully. But we worked together for so long that by the time the series ended we had enough of each other.
"But six years having passed, it's like, I don't make jam, but I'm assuming you pour away the boiling liquid so after six years the liquid is all boiled off and all that remains is the jam of appreciation."
David also compared British women to "frozen champagne".
He added to British TV presenter Miquita Oliver: "You know what Byron said about English women? He said that they were like frozen champagne. When champagne freezes all the non alcoholic liquids freeze to the top and at the bottom is just that strong distilled alcohol. I think it is a compliment."
The full interview between Duchovny and Oliver can be seen on Channel 4's 'T4' this Sunday (03.08.08).
