Washington: David Arquette is not having a nervous breakdown and what he said in a recent interview was just a joke, according to the actor.

During a rambling one-hour interview on the Howard Stern Show this week, the 39-year-old said he may be losing it, saying "I believe so," when the radio host asked if he was having a nervous breakdown.

Now the actor, who appeared on the show for the third time since splitting with wife Courteney Cox, 46, in October, says he was just kidding around.

"It is being reported that I’m having a Nervous Breakdown," UsMagazine.com quoted him as Tweeting.

"I assure you am not. This stemmed from a joke I made," he added.
