Nicolas Cage told the following story at the Toronto Film Festival this week:
“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.
I’m glad the the definition of “fudgesicle” has been cleared up … you know, for the seven people who never ventured near an ice cream truck while growing up. While we’re talking about Nicolas Cage … here are the five best movies he’s starred in (no order):
Leaving Las Vegas
Honeymoon in Vegas (underrated)
* He doesn’t qualify for Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Not a starring role.
** I enjoyed Moonstruck, and it would be in the “next five.”
*** Face Off was awful.
**** Con Air was pretty bad, too.
***** His prime was 1995-2000 because he got solid roles after Leaving Las Vegas.
