Supporting David Arquette Through Thick and Thin
David Arquette has been a victim of physical assault along with his siblings. Despite a difficult childhood, the actor took up the profession early and gained the limelight. But, his passion for wrestling landed him in a controversy with the wrestling fans. Hence, he spent a long time trying to win them over.
Despite having a heart attack and having two stents put inside, David Arquette returned to pro wrestling in 2018 in a match where weapons were allowed. He even got his neck sliced with a shard of glass. Both his wives thought his love for wrestling may have pulled him out of the Hollywood limelight and affected his career.
However, the real reason for his passion for wrestling is that he associates the sport with his father, who passed away when he was 29. It had been a rough few years when his friend Luke Perry and sister Alexis passed away. But Christina McLarty stood by his side, even though she didn’t quite understand what he was doing. Arquette has also been battling an addiction problem for a long time, but he has been sober recently. In an interview with Guardian, he said “I want to be the best person I can for my wife, for my kids, for myself.”
Christina McLarty and David Arquette are another power couple in Hollywood and we hope the Scream actor finds happiness in acting and making others smile instead of self-harming or engaging in self-destructive activities.
