5. Truth is stranger than fiction and David Duchovny’s personal life became a reflection of his TV role as sex-obsessed writer Hank Moody in Showtime’s Californication when he admitted to sex addiction upon entering rehab last August. In real life, Duchovny copied his TV character by engaging in self-destructive behavior off set. The dangerous irony is that Duchovny is back for a third season playing Hank Moody in Showtime’s Californication and this could just reignite his sex-addiction and drag him right back down. Too many actors don’t realize that consistently playing a character will affect their psyche – deeply and sometimes irrevocably.
