Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny know which side their bread is buttered on, right?

Though they’ve both gone on to distinguished careers since “The X-Files” ended — David stars in “Californication,” Gillian has become British — they’ll always be Mulder and Scully in our hearts. And Mulder and Scully will always be in passionate, alien-hunting love. And they know it.

The pair seems to enjoy teasing fans by reminding them of their chemistry. During Anderson’s Reddit AMA yesterday, she brought her former costar along for the ride, and they posted their “proof” photo snuggling in a bed together.

Maybe they’re just trying to lay the groundwork: Both stars said they’d be up for a third “X-Files” movie.

“The X-Files” has had more of an influence on our modern day pop culture than you might think: The show brought the creator and star of “Breaking Bad” together.

Bryan Cranston, who won three consecutive Emmys for his role as Walter White, said that he wanted to “lift my leg up and spray [Vince Gilligan] with my scent” when he read the pilot because he was so interested in getting the role. He had appeared on episodes of “The X-Files” that Gilligan had written as a similar character: a villain who somehow audience members sympathized with. Playing that role, Gilligan said, convinced executives that Cranston was fit to be Walter White.
