In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, David Arquette - who recently left rehab - revealed he drank his first beer when he was just four years old.
David Arquette drank his first beer when he was just four years old.
The 'Scream 4' star - who checked out of the Betty Ford Center, where he underwent rehabilitation treatment for alcoholism, at the end of January - confessed he tried his first alcoholic beverage when he was a young child during a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey.
When asked when he had his first drink, he said: "I must have been 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. I remember that. It's one of my earliest memories."
The 39-year-old actor - who raises a six-year-old daughter Coco with the former 'Friends' star - said: "I came back from Miami and I had taken a nap and I woke up and Patricia and Courteney were at my bed. I was like, 'What are you two doing here together?'
"Then I walked out and my best friend was there, my business partner and some guy I don't know, and I go, 'What up, turkeys? I guess this is my intervention.' "
Before he went to rehab, David had admitted he started drinking heavily following his split from Courteney in October 2010
The actor - who was regularly seen out partying in the wake of the separation - said: "I've been drinking a lot. But I don't want to go into all that, because it's really a personal, traumatic thing.
"Everybody's worried and concerned about me. When I drink, I become a maniac. This is the hardest thing anyone has to go through. You wake up and the reality hits you."
