'Californication' star David Duchovny has revealed that he was attending the wedding of "Melrose Place" actor Jason Beghe when scientologists tried to recruit him

The former 'X-Files' star said: "They made a play for me. I did squeeze the cans and I did a session on the E-meter, and I realised immediately, because they're asking very personal questions, that they were gathering information that I didn't want to give out to a stranger."

Duchovny went through an "auditing" session with the recruiters, but he says it "didn't go well", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

He told The Daily Beast: "I didn't play by the rule, and I never went back."

Beghe, 61, was a scientologist at the time. However, Duchovny said that the actor didn't make any real effort to recruit him on behalf of the church.

Duchovny said: "He only 'recruited' me in the sense of saying, 'This is great, and I think you should try it,' not anything harder than that."

The Hollywood star also shared that scientology is financially draining for its members.

Meanwhile, Duchovny recently said that he turned his attention towards making music in 2017 because he wasn't being offered any interesting roles.
