David Arquette named his new nightclub after seeing a picture of his mother as a pin-up.

The 40-year-old actor recently opened Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows - already a favourite with the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton - and he admits the inspiration for its name came from a photograph of his mother Brenda.

Speaking on Bethenny Frankel's TV show 'Bethenny' he said: ''It's named after my mother... She did, like, nude modelling.

''I was going through this book, because I've always loved pin-up models and all that kind of thing and I come across a picture of my mom.

''And then there's another one picture and she's having a catfight with some other lady in lingerie. And she was alive at the time, and I'm like 18, and I go, 'Mom, look what I found'. And she goes, 'Oh David, you know we were just pretending. We weren't really fighting.'

''I'm like, 'But you're naked!' She was like, 'The human body is beautiful'.

''So we opened this club, called Bootsy Bellows, and it's singing and dancing and puppets. Because I'm a weirdo and I love puppets.''

David recently filed for divorce from his wife Courteney Cox two years after they split.

He is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their eight-year-old daughter Coco and is not asking for any child support from the former 'Friends' actress.
