David Arquette says he's not having a breakdown and was only joking
UPI News Service, 12/16/2010
David Arquette clarified via Twitter Thursday that he was only kidding when he told radio interviewer Howard Stern he is having a nervous breakdown.
Arquette and his wife, actress Courteney Cox, recently announced they had split up. Since then, Arquette has appeared on Stern's show several times and lamented about how saddened he is that his marriage has ended.
UsMagazine.com said Stern asked him on the air Wednesday if he may be suffering from a nervous breakdown, to which Arquette replied, "I believe so."
However, the "Scream" star tweeted Thursday that he was only joking when he said that.
"It is being reported that I'm having a Nervous Breakdown," he said via Twitter.
"I assure you am not. This stemmed from a joke I made. ... I always speak my mind and I really don't care what people that don't know me may say... I'm a good person with a huge heart. I thank those that have been on my side during this rough time."
