Troubled Hollywood star Nicolas Cage was reportedly thrown out of a restaurant in Las Vegas after he got drunk and was mistaken for a homeless man.
Exclusive video footage obtained by The Sun shows the National Treasure actor, 57, being escorted out of Lawry’s Prime Rib near the famous Las Vegas strip last week.
At first, eyewitnesses mistook the star for a drunk homeless person as they told The Sun that Cage had been drinking expensive whiskey and shots of tequila before becoming belligerent.
Wearing leopard pants and flip-flops, the star, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of an alcoholic in Leaving Las Vegas, was seen sitting on a sofa barefoot and struggling to get his sandals on before staggering around and shouting.
This incident comes after an emotional rollercoaster of a year for Cage which has seen him get married for the fifth time and lose his mom Joy Vogelsang.
A source told The Sun: “We were at that bar at Lawry’s when we noticed what we at first thought was a homeless man completely drunk and being rowdy.”
“To our shock it turned to be Nicolas Cage. He was completely smashed and was getting into a bit of a fight with the staff,” the source added. “He was in a really bad state and was walking around shoeless. Staff told us he had been downing shots of tequila and 1980 Macallan whiskey.
The source affirmed that the Hollywood star was shouting at people and trying to get into fights and then staff asked him to leave.
“He asked us if we wanted to come back to his place but he was in a bad way so we didn’t think it was a good idea.
“One of the regulars ended up taking him home.”
Needless to mention that this is not the first time that the actor has been filmed while apparently drunk in public in recent times.
In March 2019, he was filmed making a scene, while drunk, applying for a marriage licence at a Las Vegas courthouse with his fourth wife Erika Koike.
