Don't Ever Ask Patricia Arquette About David

| Filed under: Courteney CoxDavid Arquette

patricia arquette blows up when asked about david

Next time we see Patricia Arquette, we'll remember NOT to ask her about her brother, David.

While at a red carpet event on Wednesday, a reporter asked Patricia about the Courteney/David break up. BIG MISTAKE.

Here's how Patricia responded:

“Great! How are you doing, how is your kid doing? Have you ever had anything happen in your life? What’s the worst thing that you’ve ever had happen to you? Do you ever masturbate? Have you ever had an abortion? I mean can you imagine these kind of questions? Can you imagine? It’s not alright! It’s not alright!”

Patricia continued to go off on other reporters:

“You can’t really keep your private life private. How many times do you have to say, ‘I don’t want to talk about this?’ It’s junior high-school. Maybe it’s one thing if I was going to some party that’s about gossip. I mean, I’m here about an incredibly important charity! These people are doing incredible things in the world. It’s, like, crazy to me. It’s like looking at everything that’s wrong in the world. This is a moment and we show up for the moment and we do something that’s important with the moment, or we don’t.”

More from Patricia:

“Everybody is human. I don’t know who here should live in a glass house and made every right choice and that everybody understands. Who’s business is it, anyway? This is the world we’re talking about. We’re talking about helping human beings, saving people’s lives, doing important work. Those people gave that money for something good to happen, not to talk about a bunch of crap!”

There's something nice about Patricia defending her brother, but words like "overreaction" definitely come to mind.

Do U agree with Patricia? Or do U think she may have gone just a BIT too far with this?

    I don't blame her, especially since they were at a charity event. Asking questions like that is tacky.



  2. 2

    No over reaction. It is fair enough comment. You have no idea how some people are bombarded with the SAME questions everywhere they go. However above all, she is defending her brother and their is NEVER enough over reaction when defending your loved ones. If her brother had a little more intelligence, he would stop talking about his conquests post breakup. Interviews are not a therapy moment. They are an opportunity to sell yourself or trash yourself. He trashed himself.

    she is spot on! i think its time for reporters to stop digging for stories! and i betcha who ever it was will think twice before asking stupid questions



  4. 4

    Does anyone know how her brother is doing? You know with the BREAK-UP and all?



  5. 5

    Yay Patricia! Bet she and many others have been dying to say something like that for years. She got her chance. Awesome!



  6. 6

    I am sure the whole thing is uncomfortable for her and she doesn't know how to respond anymore plus she is an actress and probably she wants the attention focused on her.



  7. 7

    She's right!



  8. 8

    It must suck for her but at the same time, if you don't like the attention then stick to being a stage actress or something. No one forces you to go to these Hollywood events. It's a trade-off.



  9. 9

    I don't blame her either. She was at a charity do- and yet all she's bombarded with was questions about her brother & sister-in-laws' private problems… I'd lose my temper too.

    I think she took the high road & didn't comment on either of them- rather than only speaking of her brother.

    BTW~ I hope Medium continues! Though- I think it's about time that they started phasing out the 'dreaming psychic' stuff already… that isn't how it works.



  10. 10

    Couldn't agree with her more.
    I love some celeb gossip but asking a celeb for gossip is just stupid!



  11. 11

    No, the paparazzi are a bunch of emotionless pricks.



  12. 12

    If the reporter wants to know how Davis is then the report should ask David. Its poor taste to ask someone about someone else's personal life, even if they're in the family.



  13. 13

    If she doesn't want to talk about her brother's personal life fine, just say so. But to go off about how his life is personal and everyone needs to leave him alone? Excuse me? And who exactly forced David Arquette to call in to Howard Stern live on the air and offer details about his situation? Get over yourself Patricia. You aren't really that relevant anymore anyway.



  14. 14

    The wrinkles in her dress should be addressed, mainly.



  15. 15

    she needs to iron her clothes, pronto



  16. 16

    She's totally right! Do you want to walk around having people ask you rude personal questions and put you on blast to the whole world? I don't understand why everyone thinks they have to do that because they chose to be actors. We really have a messed up, shallow culture.



  17. 17

    Maybe she should not do the red carpet if she can't handle it. I mean does she really think the public cares about her ugly outfit?



  18. 18

    Re: Elmo24 – same here! she's probably been bombarded with questions these last few weeks.



  19. 19

    She was perfectly right to say what she said. i would have added even more.



  20. 20

    Good for her. I'll bet most people will think twice about asking her something personal again. It's atrocious what people will ask or what they feel privileged to be privy to… until people start speaking up and telling these "reporters" to shove off, inappropriate questions will continue. Again, I'm glad she told them nothing. It only makes me like her more.



  21. 21

    I agree with her.



  22. 22

    She's not even that famous…



  23. 23

    TOTALLY AGREE!!
    I respect this woman.
    Reporters should begin to mind their own business when it comes to private (and delicate) matters. That's all.



  24. 24

    Good for her! This was the context of a CHARITY EVENT. All thsoe tabloid-baity questions are uncalled for and tasteless!



  25. 25

    Well, I don't think any other reporter will make the same mistake again….so I guess she was spot on…lol. I think she has been practicing that speech at dinner parties to be honets…thats a lot to say without rehersals….haha



  26. 26

    She's right. we wouldnt want ppl all up in our business, just because theyre celebs doesnt mean we have the right to know everything about them. back off ppl, let them share what they want and stop trying to go further, they're just like us..normal, they get humilated, hurt and for those feelings to be put on the spot all the time is just wrong! go patricia!



  27. 27

    perfect comment patricia, fuck you perez.



  28. 28

    Love her.



  29. 29

    So her annoying whiny mumbles aren't just bad scriptwriting, she is like that in real life. Don't watch her show because all she does is whine and mope in each episode. Why is it still on the air"?



  30. 30

    Re: queen_0f_p0p – Idiot. The Arquettes have been around forever, most people know of at least one of the siblings. And even if she isn't "that famous" (which, clearly, she is famous) she still has the right to answer a question how she wants.



  31. 31

    good for her! she shouldn't have to field questions for her brother especially while she's speaking at a charity event!



  32. 32

    preach it sister lol



  33. 33

    Go,Patricia! She's 100% right! If more people minded their own business and did more positive things,this world could actually be a better place!



  34. 34

    Re: markustucker – That cracked me up!



  35. 35

    I agree with her. I believe the jerk asking the question was hoping for that reaction, and he got it. Christ, it's bad enough she has to deal with her own personal life in public, why does she now have to answer for her brother's?



  36. 36

    Normally I'd side with her but she should have taken the high road and started talking about the event she was there for. Also, I would expect it to be a private matter if her brother hadn't been flapping his mouth to howard stern. He's obviously not concerned with privacy.



  37. 37

    I'm surprised anyone cares about her or her brother. Next.



  38. 38

    I think she did the right thing. Good for her! No over emoting here.



  39. 39

    She is perfect in every way.

    Patricia Arquette in True Romance is the girl of my dreams.

    Subud!



  40. 40

    I adore Patricia. shes probably sick to death of people asking her about her siblings. jeez. how about some questions about HER and HER career.
    Im behind her with whatever she says. shes probably one of the most down to earth celebs around.



  41. 41

    I think she is under a lot of stress from her own marriage and her show. She was a movie actress for years and have been in some good films. I think she was on overload from being asked that question too often. She just had to blow off some steam. If Medium does not return she can always return to movies.



  42. 42

    Congrats to her for standing up to stupid questioning! About time someone did. I commend her heartily for doing this.



  43. 43

    Your being a fucking douche about this Perez, this woman is completely right. You and people like you who only focus on the gossip of peoples personal lives rather than what's actually going on in the world need open ur minds.



  44. 44

    It is funny, because on one hand she is completely right but on the other her brother keeps giving interviews revealing so much information (crying after sex) that you can't blame them for trying and hoping TMI disorder is a genetic condition.



  45. 45

    Don't blame her..



  46. 46

    Give her a break - she has her own stuff going on and is probably sick of being asked about her brother. They're a somewhat private family and if David wants to talk about what's going on, that's fine, but asking someone's relatives about it is over the line.



  47. 47

    I think it's great and I would do the same for any of my siblings. She was pissed and has a right to be! Sticking up for your family is always the right thing to do and Medium is a GREAT show.



  48. 48

    go patricia! i totally agree with what shes saying. i dont believe shes overreacting at all.

  49. @v@ says – reply to this


    49

    I think that on a different, perhaps less stressful day, she probably could have smoothly segwayed the question(s) into the direction that she felt was important to cover without even bothering to refer to the offensive ones. I like her work onscreen.



  50. 50

    This is a perfect example how even at a positive event to help others,some people are still more interested in what can HURT other. It's one thing to ask questions like that on a gossip site like this, but not at a charity event. Hollywood is twisted!

  51. Zopo says – reply to this

    Good on her. Who says it is ok to ask her personal questions about her bro.

    What do you expect, her to react differently???



  52. 52

    She did not defend her brother ONE BIT! Mario, are you so out of touch that you don't realize that people are getting sick and tired of these distractions?! THE CHARITY WAS WHAT WAS IMPORTANT!
