While attending the Toronto International Film Festival to promote his new film “Trespass” – which concerns a wealthy man who suffers a home invasion — Nicolas Cage revealed that he was once the victim in a similar scenario when he awoke to a man donning his clothing and eating a frozen treat in his bedroom.
“It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife,” Cage told reporters in Toronto. “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.”
According to Cage he was able to talk the man out of the house, and police eventually arrived at his home. Though he did not press charges against the man who he sad had mental problems, the actor said that he was unable to remain in that home after the “horrifying” incident. He know resides in Nassau, Bahamas.
In the new film re-teams with his “8MM” director Joel Schumacher to play a diamond dealer who along with his wife, portrayed by Nicole Kidman, endures a home invasion that leads to the discovery of betrayal and deception. It is slated for release next month.
