Nicolas Cage kicked out of Las Vegas bar after getting ‘drunk and being rowdy’: report
Possibly he’s rehearsing for “Leaving Las Vegas” half two.
Troubled Hollywood star Nicolas Cage has been filmed getting thrown out of an upscale Las Vegas bar — the place he was “utterly drunk and being rowdy” and mistaken for a “homeless man,” eyewitnesses mentioned.
The actor — who gained an Oscar for his portrayal of an alcoholic in “Leaving Las Vegas” — was kicked out of Lawry’s Prime Rib on Monday final week after arguing with a workers member, in response to footage shared with the Sun.
“Nicolas Cage here’s a little f–ked up,” one man might be heard on the video because the unshaven star sat on a coach sporting leopard-print pants, a black T-shirt and nothing on his naked toes.
An eyewitness instructed the Solar that they first thought he was “a homeless man utterly drunk and being rowdy.”
“To our shock, it turned [out] to be Nicolas Cage,” the onlooker mentioned of the 57-year-old “Face/Off” star.
“He was utterly smashed and was getting right into a little bit of a combat with the workers.
“He was in a extremely dangerous state and was strolling round shoeless. Employees instructed us he had been downing pictures of tequila and 1980 Macallan whiskey.
“He was shouting at individuals and making an attempt to get into fights after which workers requested him to depart,” the witness mentioned.
Within the footage, Cage slurs as he asks for his “sneakers” — simply to be given some flip-flops that he seems to battle to slip his toes into.
“He was so drunk he may barely get his flip-flops on earlier than being escorted out,” mentioned the witness, who claimed that Cage had “requested us if we wished to return again to his place.”
The clip ends with Cage — who lost his mom earlier this year — seemingly confronting the workers who threw him out, apparently making an attempt to make his manner again into the bar.
“Cease, man,” a voice on the video will be heard, noting the obvious embarrassment Cage was inflicting.
In addition to enjoying a drunk onscreen, Cage has had his personal historical past with the bottle.
In March 2019, he annulled his Vegas marriage to fourth spouse Erika Koike — admitting that he was too drunk to “understand the full impact of his actions.”
In a 2018 interview with the Guardian, Cage additionally admitted that he throws himself into his work to keep away from being “self-destructive.”
“Then I’m simply going to take a seat and order two bottles of pink wine and dissolve, and I don’t wish to be that particular person, so I’ve to work,” he mentioned.
A consultant for the star didn’t reply to a request for remark and a member of workers believed to be a supervisor at Lawry’s refused to remark when requested concerning the incident, the Solar mentioned.
