Certain news stories have us smiling from ear-to-ear. Even a tad speechless. The sheer absurdity of the life of a celebrity can sometimes be … well … strange. Especially if you’re Nicolas Cage and you have a new home invasion flick coming out.
For actor Nicolas Cage, making the new thriller movie Trespass hit close to home.
Cage, at the Toronto Film Festival along with director Joel Schumacher promoting the film about a home invasion, said that he has actually lived through the nightmare in real life.
“It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes, and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed,” he told reporters on Wednesday.
“I know it sounds funny … but it was horrifying.”
A Fudgesicle is a frozen, ice cream-like snack.
Cage said the ordeal ended after he talked the man out of the house and police arrived. He did not press charges, as the man had mental problems, but Cage, who now lives in Nassau, Bahamas, said he could not stay in the house after that.
You just can’t make this shit up. Or can you? Thanks to DC reader Andrew for the chuckles.
Directed by Joel Schumacher from a script by Eli Richbourg and Karl Gajdusek, Trespass also stars Nicolas Cage’s Hair, Nicole Kidman, Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato. Look for it to be opening in limited theaters and on VOD October 14th.
Bring it on! Hit up the official Trespass Facebook page for some stills.
A husband (Cage) and wife (Kidman) are taken hostage by extortionists, and a cycle of betrayal and deception emerges in the pressured conditions.
