Nicolas Cage and The Fudgesicle Bandit
“To this day, I’ll never understand why he only left the Creamsicles… *chokes up* Can we do this another time?”
While promoting his new movie Trespass at the Toronto Film Festival, Nicolas Cage opened up about the time an intruder broke into his house and violated the sanctity of his frozen treats. Via Huffington Post:
“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.
Later, Nicolas Cage realized it wasn’t an intruder, but just his own reflection in the mirror again and laughed because eating Fudgesicles naked should’ve been the first clue. Fortunately, he didn’t do anything crazy like light the house on fire and buy a new one because the old one’s tainted now. No, sir, Nicolas Cage knows the value of a dollar, and that value is dinosaur skulls.
