Film News: ‘Trespass’ Star Nicolas Cage Awoken By Naked Man Eating Fudgesicle
CHICAGO – You can probably count the number of times you have used the terms ‘Nicolas Cage’ and ‘Fudgesicle’ in the same sentence on one hand; maybe even one finger. Regardless, the news is true: Nicolas Cage was awoken by a naked man eating a Fudgesicle.
Cage, who was at the Toronto Film Festival Wednesday to support his new film “Trespass,” said he has lived the nightmare of a home invasion just like the character he plays in his new movie. Cage revealed the story to a room of reporters at a press junket for the film:
“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,” Cage said. “I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed.”
The news, which had to come as a complete shock to the reporters present, was quickly followed by Cage saying it was no laughing matter: “I know it sounds funny … but it was horrifying.”
The news was reported online by Reuters, who were sure to specify that a fudgesicle is “a frozen, ice cream-like snack.”
Cage went on to say that the issue was resolved calmly when Cage talked the man out of the house. The police arrived on the scene shortly after. No charges were pressed when Cage found out that the man had mental issues.
Cage’s new film “Trespass” is due in theaters October 14, but the intruders in that film are not said to be wielding frozen snacks of any kind.
