In White Folks News: David Arquette Says He Drank Beer At 4 And Smoked Weed At 8-Years-Old

- By Bossip Staff

SMH…this fool was off the chain:

Fresh off his stint in rehab, David Arquette is ready to come clean about his alcohol and drug-riddled past. Sober since December 29, the 39-year-old Scream 4 actor opens up to Oprah Winfrey during a Thursday appearance on her daytime talk show (check your local listings).

“When I had my first drink of beer, I must have been four-years-old,” he tells Winfrey, 57. “I was down in the basement with my dad and beer was there and I just grabbed it and drank it. And I remember that. It’s one of my earliest memories.” That’s not all. “I seriously started drinking probably when I was about 12,” Arquette reveals. “I stole pot from my father when I was eight years old.”

According to the actor, he voluntarily checked into rehab on January 2 at the insistence of his sister, Patricia Arquette, and his estranged wife, Courteney Cox (with whom he shares a six-year-old daughter, Coco).

“I came back from Miami and I had taken a nap. I woke up and Patricia and Courteney were at my bed,” he recalls. “Courteney had a cup of coffee. I was like, ‘What are you two doing here together?’ I already knew.”

“Courteney’s like, ‘Do you mind coming out to the living room for a minute?’ I said, ‘Sure, let me get dressed.’ I put on this white outfit and came out. I peeked my head out [I saw] and my best friend Hartwell and my business partner and some guy I don’t know. I go ‘What up, Turkeys? I guess this is my intervention!'”

Since seeking treatment, a source tells that Arquette and Cox, 46, “are still great friends and getting along really well.”

    Reminds me of Shia Labeouf whose father let him smoke pot at 10. Terrible parenting really.

  • Honut Sinti

    I believe that his daddy was the grandpaw character on the old TV show HeeHaw. That may explain his uncooked humor.
