"The X-Files" fans have been hoping for years that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were actually dating, but in a recent interview with TVLine, Duchovny shot down the rumors.

"The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird," he told the site. "It's never happened, it's not going to happen, we're friends. I don't want to rain on anybody's parade, but no, it's not gonna happen. It hasn't happened."

The rumors were refueled last week when Anderson stepped on stage with Duchovny while he was promoting his new album, "Hell or Highwater," at New York City's Cutting Room. They shared a friendly kiss. “I see Gillian, I kiss her hello," he said. "She’s my friend. If somebody gets a picture of that, if it’s on stage and she comes up to sing with me, I’m going to kiss her hello. I wish the show would be enough. I don’t understand why people want more from Gillian and I. I really don’t.”

Thirteen years after it went off the air, "The X-Files" is set to return to Fox for six episodes, with Duchovny and Anderson reprising their roles as Mulder and Scully, respectively. Duchovny, who told TVLine he's seen the first script, said, "You can have Mulder and Scully, and that’s gonna have to be enough."
