David Duchovny has claimed in an interview he had a crush on his teacher when he was just six years old and used to misbehave so she would have to grab him
David Duchovny claims he had his first erotic experience when he was just six years old.
The 'X Files' actor - who was treated for sex addiction last year - admits he had such a huge crush on his first grade teacher he used to make up excuses so she could touch him.
He told German TV channel Tele 5: "I always ran around extra wildly, so that she had to catch and grab me."
David believes his sexual appetite grew to such extreme levels because lovemaking is a form of escapism for him.
He said: "Sex, to me, means I can forget myself. It's just the moment. I heard that skiing is even better than sex. It could be possible - but I'm not a skier."
However, the 49-year-old star is fully aware his obsession with sex almost destroyed his marriage to wife Tea Leoni, the mother of his two children, Madelaine, 10, and seven-year-old Kyd.
He said: "My family and I have had a very hard year. Today I'm as happy as ever. I'm ultimately grateful for all the difficulties. My wife and I have gone through that together and now we are even stronger."
