David Arquette opened up about the tumultuous period in his life following his separation with Courteney Cox on Monday’s On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and RadarOnline.com has all the details for you.
The Scream 4 star, who celebrated his 100th day of sobriety last week, told Seacrest that his March 4 car accident “definitely gave me the perspective of take it slow, kinda be a little calmer and enjoy life.”
He said he and Cox were moving toward their separation while shooting Scream 4 last summer, as “it was time for us to ask some questions.”
He said, “For me, I used [the separation] in a bad way to act out and shake my world up, ‘cause I was heartbroken and I didn’t deal with it [properly]… I dealt with it in the way I had to, because I believe in learning from my mistakes.
As we previously reported, the Ready To Rumble star entered into a facility January 2, prodded to straighten up after an intervention by his sister Patricia and his estranged wife, Cox.
“I went where I had to go to come back, and look at myself and look at my life,” he said.
Asked about Cox’s recent St. Barth’s trip with their daughter Coco and her hunky Cougar Town co-star, Josh Hopkins, Arquette said there was nothing shady going on, despite reports to the contrary.
“We’re best friends, we’re not together, we’re still separated… these tabloids make it like there’s some sort of scandal going on — there’s no scandal!”
He reiterated he and Cox “have 15 years of a friendship and love with each other — and we have a child together,” hence their decision to support one another in their post-separation lives.
Arquette and Cox return to the silver screen when Scream 4 hits theaters April 15.
