Actor Nicolas Cage opened up about a bizarre home invasion incident he says was not nearly as funny as it sounds.
Cage, who is starring with Nicole Kidman in the upcoming Trespass, says that no one was harmed and charges were not pressed when the strange incident occurred. And he acknowledged that the whole situation sounds humorous, but the actor- who now lives in the Bahamas- could no longer stay in the home in which he lived following the incident because it was so unsettling.
Cage was in his bed, asleep, at the time of the home invasion. And it wasn’t a “bursting in with guns and stealing stuff” type thing- but the lack of violence and intent could have made it all the more scarier. Cage recalls:
“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… I know it sounds funny … but it was horrifying.”
Cage’s new film Trespass is about a home invasion as well, centering around a wealthy man in his mansion and a group of “thieves” who “con” their way in. Cage describes the film as about “haves” and “have-nots” as well as “class warfare” in America. Below is a trailer for Trespass, which will be out in theaters nationwide later this year.
