If Nic Cage is embarrassed about the financial meltdown that forced him to sell off his castles and that “frathouse bordello,” the Kick-Ass actor isn’t telling anyone. Instead, he’s telling us that only animals that have “dignified” mating rituals are granted the honor of being chewed upon. “I love all animals. I have a fascination with fish, birds, whales—sentient life—insects, reptiles. 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.”
While Cage, who is recovering from his economic woes by continuing to bust out movie after movie (he’ll make his 3D debut in Drive Angry next year), didn’t specifically say “I only eat animals that make classy love because I want their energy to improve my own classy lovemaking,” we’ve decided to assume that’s the motivation for his peculiar criteria for chowing down. The alternative, of course, is that the man who will be buried in a 9 ft. tall pyramid is just crazy. Marvel at our hero in the gallery below and get pumped for his next film, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, out later this summer.
