In his first one-on-one since leaving rehab last month, David Arquette opened up to Oprah Winfrey Thursday about his struggles with drugs and alcohol from a young age, his strained marriage to Courteney Cox, and his plan to become a better man. David revealed that his troubles started very early in life –turns out he had his first taste of beer at the shocking age of four years old. “I was down in the basement with my dad and the beer was there and I just grabbed it and drank it,” he told Oprah. “It’s one of my earliest memories.” He continued that he seriously started drinking around age 12 and even stole pot from his father when he was just eight years old. Scandalous! And explains a lot.
After engaging in some wild behavior post-split from Courtney last October, the 39-year-old entered rehab at the beginning of the year for alcohol addiction. He also recalled his “intervention” to Oprah. He basically woke up from a nap and Courtney, his sister, Patricia, best friend, business partner, and “some guy he didn’t know” were at his bed. “I go, ‘What up, Turkeys? I guess this is my intervention!'”
David still holds out hope that he and Courtney can rekindle their relationship, but ultimately, says it’s her decision. “We truly love each other with all our hearts,” he said, adding, “Whether it’s as friends or as husband and wife, I know that I’ll be with her my whole life.” Here, he looks debonair and ready to tackle the future in these stylish Ray Ban wayfarer eyeglasses available in black and dark havana frame hues. –rpuccia
