The truth is out there, whether we want it or not.

David Duchovny has checked into rehab to undergo treatment for sex addiction.

"I have voluntarily entered a facility for the treatment of sex addiction," the actor said in a statement released by his attorney to People. "I ask for respect and privacy for my wife and children as we deal with this situation as a family."

The X-Files star—who, ironically, won a Golden Globe this year for playing an over-sexed struggling writer on Showtime's Californication—has been married to Téa Leoni since May 1997. They have two children together, daughter Madelaine West, 9, and son Kyd Miller, 6.
