  • Quotes

    • Courteney Cox: When David Arquette and I got engaged we started therapy together. I'd heard that the first year of marriage is the hardest, so we decided to work through all that stuff early.

    • David Arquette: (defending Jennifer Aniston) Jennifer is great. When her marriage to Brad ended, it was sad. I love Brad, he's a great guy but he did some stuff that hurt our friend. Finding out he was sleeping with Angelina was pretty much a surprise. They wouldn't have broke up if not for that. Did I ever see Jen cry? No, never. Not one tear shed. Those magazines, they take something and it's working for them so they play it out, but she's not really that sad about the whole thing. She's the greatest, she's such a sweetheart, she's so funny. I don't think Jennifer hates Angelina, I don't think it's like that. The way they depict it is completely wrong. She's a very strong woman, she's totally solid and she's just got a great attitude.

    • David Arquette: If anyone ever wanted me to do Broadway out there, poopshoot readers, please think of me.

    • David Arquette: I'm the creepy guy. I just slowly start getting creepier and creepier.

    • David Arquette: I guess I've always been a little goofy so I can't avoid that. I don't know. I'm getting older. At some point it's got to let up a little.

    • David Arquette: When you're just an actor, maybe not the top of the list guys, you get constant rejection and it's fun.

    • David Arquette: I'm not very self aware about my career. I probably should be more so. Just to be brutally honest, it's not like I have every movie at my fingertips. I can't get seen on a lot of pictures. So I like to take chances with first time directors and try to help with my name to put things together to help raise money for films that might not otherwise get made without me.

    • David Arquette: Men are taught to be womanizers and tough and all this sh*t that in reality isn't that important and in reality can screw your life up.

    • David: Kids today are smarter than we ever were. And they've got computers, too, which is awesome. They're scary to me.

    • David: I think God is a giant vibrator in the sky.

    • David: I like to mumble when I act, 'cause I think it's more realistic. For some reason, the impediment has given me the accent of a Mexican gangster.

    • David: I have a high-heel fetish. I love really beautiful women's shoes. To me, it's not weird. I can take it all.
