David Arquette: "I'm Having a Nervous Breakdown"

Scream star David Arquette has hit the airwaves once again to go public with his troubles since splitting with Courteney Cox.

The couple announced in October that they were taking a break after 11 years of marriage.

Arquette has since given several soul-baring interviews on shock jock and good pal Howard Stern‘s radio show. The actor revealed a slew of personal info, including the fact that he and Cox hadn’t had sex in like four months”.

He also confirmed rumours that he’d had a fling since his split.

Arquette returned to the Howard Stern Show on Wednesday, and revealed that the pain of the break-up has taken its toll on him.

At one point during their conversation, Stern asked him if he was suffering from a mental breakdown. “I believe so,”replied Arquette.

The actor also admitted he’d been boozing.

I’ve been drinking a lot because I’m heartbroken,” Arquette said, adding that he has since stopped because,when I drink, I become a maniac. When you wake up and reality hits you, it’s hard.”

He added: Everybody is worried and concerned about me,”while revealing that he’s turned to a psychiatrist to sort his issues.

He explained that while drowning his sorrows recently, he made a bit of a boob of himself.

Attending a Christmas bash hosted by Adam Sandler, he drunkenly called Tom Cruise “Sean.”

“I was a little wasted,Arquette said.“Someone says ‘Hi David!’, and I said, ‘Hi Sean! Then I realised it was Tom Cruise. And his beautiful wife [Katie Holmes] was there.

“Tom was cool about it … I was so embarrassed. I was like ‘I gotta get the f**k out of here.’”

As for the future, Arquette says, “I need love in my life,” and he quite likes the idea of having children with ex Drew Barrymore.

“I know she is with Justin Long and everything, but would cool would an Arquette-Barrymore child be?he said. “From a pure breeding standpoint.”

Oh, and he wants to put one particular rumour to sleep: “I [am] not messing around with Kelly Osbourne.”


Arquette, no more radio revelations, dude. Thinking the whole world’s your therapist isn’t going to do you any favours.Back on that couch, stat!
