Téa Leoni is opening up about her recent divorce from David Duchovny, and what she has to say may shock you -- in the best way possible.

Rather than play the blame game or talk about Duchovny's highly publicized sex addiction, Leoni recently had this to say about her ex:

"David gave me the two greatest gifts on the planet; I don't know how I could ever hate him. We've always loved each other, and we adore these kids," Leoni told Parade magazine on Sept. 19, referring to her two children ages 15 and 12.

"I’m not playing stupid," Leoni added. "I understand feelings can get hurt and things can get icky. We’ve had our moments like that. But these kids are too important, and he feels the same way, I know it. He’s a good guy.”

Now that's some co-parenting we can get behind!

Leoni and Duchovny tied the knot back in 1997. They split twice over the course of their 17-year marriage and filed for divorce in June.
