'Ghost Town' actress Tea Leoni - who has been separated from 'The X-Files' star David Duchovny for several months - has further fuelled rumours she is secretly dating her 'Manure' co-star Billy Bob Thornton
Tea Leoni has added to rumours she is secretly dating Billy Bob Thornton.
The 'Ghost Town' actress - who has been separated from 'The X-Files' star David Duchovny for several months - admits she got very close to the actor on set of her new film 'Manure'.
She said: "We have this incredible cast with Billy Bob Thornton, who is maybe my new favourite person in the world."
David - who has recently finished a stint in a rehabilitation clinic where he was being treated for sex addiction - is believed to have instigated the split after discovering explicit text messages from Billy Bob on his wife's cell phone.
The pair have been married for 11 years and have two children - nine-year-old Madelaine West and six-year-old Kyd.
Meanwhile, Tea revealed how strange it is to shoot a film about excrement.
She said: "The entire movie is brown. Everything. The sets, the props, the wardrobe, the cars. And I'm the only thing in cream.
"It's funny, it's a very simple thread but at the same time it's all about our relationship to excrement.
"Our own, others', selling it, making it, smelling it, being offended by it, revelling in it, getting hit with it when it hits the fan."
