David Arquette opened up to Oprah Winfrey on Thursday about his marriage to Courteney Cox, claiming he “felt abandoned” when the actress told him she wanted to separate.
“She came down really depressed one day and she’s like ‘I’m really just not that happy,'” Arquette told Oprah, and RadarOnline.com can bring you the video.
“And when she started talking about separation I felt…on the inside of our rings it says ‘A Deals A Deal…’ He said. “I felt really sort of abandoned at that point like she’d broken the deal.”
Arquette, who says Courteney is “a beautiful person,” added that she tried to help him kick his drinking habit but he wasn’t ready to give up the sauce.
“Courteney told me I drank too much,” the 39-year-old told Oprah. “I was pushing her away.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Scream 4 star also confessed that his partying roots go deep – he remembers drinking his first beer at 4 years old, and even stealing marijuana from his father when he was only 8.
“When I had my first drink of beer, I must have been 4 years old,” Arquette revealed during the candid interview. “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,” he said. “I stole pot from my father when I was eight years old.”
