In 1997, few television actors were more popular than X-Files star David Duchovny, who presented himself as the anti-star—an actor who openly disdained the trappings of television celebrity. However, Duchovny wasn’t against trying to use his small-screen stature to graduate to a big-screen career. Although plans had already been finalized for Gillian Anderson and Duchovny to star in an X-Files feature film, 1997’s Playing God was Duchovny’s first opportunity to capitalize on his small-screen success as Fox Mulder.

However, 19 months after they were married, they made it official. “Jonny and I are still crazy about each other, but we have the sense of needing to move on in different directions,” she would tell Louis Hobson of the Calgary Sun in 1998.

True Women aired in May 1997 and for the most part, critics and viewers responded positively. However, for once, Jolie was upstaged and the lion’s share of ink went to Delany.
