The Daily Heat Index: The Sexual Tension Between ‘X-Files’ Stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny Is Too Real
Plus, Olivia Munn gets down on ‘Lip Sync Battle’ and the ‘Making a Murderer’ directors stop by ‘Colbert.’
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
The Truth is Still Out There
We may not be reunited with partners Mulder and Scully until the end of the month, but Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny took to the set of Jimmy Kimmel: Live! to prove they’re still the best damn couple out there — even if they won’t admit it.
During an interview with the late night host, Kimmel observed that the two costars actually seem to get along before Gillian went into some odd story about Vancouver’s moist air angering David. First off, no one should ever use the word ‘moist’ unless held at gunpoint. But second, her uncontrollable laughter and reaction only reassures us that the love between Mulder and Scully is still as strong as ever. January 24th, we’re ready for ya.
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
Guilty or not guilty? Proven or not proven? These are the questions that Stephen Colbert asked Making a Murderer directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos on The Late Show following the explosive success of their documentary series. The 10-part ‘decade in the making’ series follows the case of Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who was exonerated after spending 18 years in prison only to again be accused of a murder and sent back to prison for the rest of his life. The three discuss the overall vibe, including how it’s more of a ‘howdunnit’ instead of your traditional ‘whodunnit,’ and the unfortunate mishaps that occur in the justice system. Ricciardi and Demos do hope that their next work will be a little bit ligher.. anyone have the number for Florence + the Machine?
No Dilemmas for Olivia Munn
Here at Maxim, we’re pretty big fans of Lip Sync Battle, and ever bigger fans of smokeshow Olivia Munn. When we heard the X-Men: Apocalypse star was hitting the LSB stage, you can bet we cancelled our plans and made sure we’d be couch-ready at 10PM on Thursday to see what performances she would bring to the stage. Even though she may not have brought out former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland to the stage, Munn still brought the house down in her soulful rendition of ‘Dilemma.’ Forget Aaron Rodgers, we know she’s really dedicating this song straight to us.
