Agents Scully and Mulder, making Us blush! David Duchovny planted a kiss on his X-Files costar Gillian Anderson on Tuesday, May 12, after their surprise duet in NYC, leaving fans everywhere wanting more from the sci-fi duo ahead of the series' reboot.

Anderson, 46, swapped Agent Dana Scully's signature redheaded bob for a messy blonde updo in The Cutting Room. After performing "Helpless" from Duchovny's debut album Hell or Highwater, the actor — who seemed very comfortable with the Fall actress — planted a friendly peck right on Anderson's lips!

Their latest affectionate moment comes amidst endless dating rumors, although the two have maintained that they are just friends. At NBC's Summer Press Day last month, Duchovny joked with Us Weekly and other reporters about rumors that the two were lovers. "Oh yeah, we live together!" he cracked.

During the same event, Duchovny also spoke in depth about the X-Files reboot. (The original series ran for nine seasons from 1993 to 2002, and was centered on two FBI agents who investigated everything from aliens to all things paranormal.)

"I don't know if it's easy yet until I do it," the Californication actor told Us. "I've always wanted to — we always wanted to keep it going."
