David Arquette Tells Oprah He Had First Beer When He Was Four

In his first interview since leaving rehab last month, David Arquette talks to Oprah Winfrey about the intervention that got him there and tells her he had his first beer when he was just four years old.

"I came back from Miami and I had taken a nap and I woke up and my sister, Patricia, and Courteney were at my bed," Arquette says about the intervention. "I was like, 'What are you two doing here together?'"

"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.'"

He checked into rehab for alcohol treatment and left the facility nearly one month later.

"I must have been four years old," he says of his first drink. "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."

Arquette says he started "seriously drinking" at the age of twelve and reveals he even stole marijuana from his father when he was eight.

But the actor claims that, following the intervention, he has been sober since the end of December.

"I was sober at the New Years event," he insists. "I went there because it was something I was planning on doing and wanted to see if I could do it sober, if I could still entertain and dance around, and I could and I had a great time. That's an example of the tabloids getting it wrong."
