Scream 4 star David Arquette appears on Oprah Thursday, where he tells the talk show icon that his partying roots go so deep, he remembers drinking beer at 4-years-old, and stealing marijuana from his father at 8-years-old.

“When I had my first drink of beer, I must have been 4-years-old,” Arquette, 39, says. “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.

“I seriously started drinking probably when I was about 12,” Arquette says. “I stole pot from my father when I was eight years old.”

Arquette, who entered into a rehab facility January 2, described the circumstances unto which he was prodded to clean up his life — an intervention by his sister Patricia and estranged wife, Courteney Cox.

“I came back from Miami and I had taken a nap. I woke up and Patricia and Courteney were at my bed,” the Ready To Rumble star says. “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,” he says.

“I peeked my head out [I saw] and my best friend Hartwell and my business partner and some guy I don’t know,” he says. “I go ‘What up, Turkeys? I guess this is my intervention!’”
