Nicolas Cage is quickly climbing the limbs of the Hollyweird tree. He has been in the news so often lately for so many strange things. For example, how about the purchase of a 9 ft. pyramid super-tomb in New Orleans that will be his final resting home. With all of these odd revelations it is harder for Cage to raise eyebrows but this bit of news certainly turns the wacky meter up a few notches.
The Sun from Britain has discovered some rather interesting diet choices for Mr. Cage. What is the determining factor in how Cage goes about choosing which meat to eat? Is it the texture or the protein content? No, it’s how the animals ‘get it on’ that matters to Cage. Here is what he had to say:
“I have a fascination with fish, birds, whales – sentient life – insects. I actually choose the way I eat according to the way animals have sex. I think fish are very dignified with sex. So are birds. But pigs, not so much. So I don’t eat pig meat or things like that. I eat fish and fowl.”
There are so many roads that I could take with that statement that it makes my head hurt. I don’t know maybe Cage handles his fame in a healthy manner by just being flat out nuts sometimes. It certainly is better than some of his young contemporaries in the media spotlight like LiLo, Tiger Woods, and Amy Winehouse.
This odd behavior actually conjures up a couple of interesting questions in my mind. First off who is currently the most off his/her rocker Hollywood A lister. If Cage is the new king, he may be getting some insider information from a man who has long been at or near the top of the list. I have photographic proof:
I challenge you to out superstar-strange that little photo! The other thing that I thought about is the idea of an actor / musician earning a lifetime pass because of a role or album they produced. Nicolas Cage certainly falls into this category for me. Short of some terrible crime I can’t hate on Cage because he was H.I. McDunnough in Raising Arizona. The man can eat what he wants based on whatever reasons he so chooses because of this:
Life pass from my judgement right there. So who do you think is the most whacked out Hollyweird A lister right now and who on that list gets a pass because of a role they played that you will never forget?
