Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage was thrown out of a Las Vegas bar based on the footage shared with the Sun.
Based on the video, he was “completely drunk” and was even mistaken for a homeless man based on an eyewitness account.
The actor won an Oscar for his role in Leaving Las Vegas where he portrayed an alcoholic. He got kicked out of Lawry’s Prime Rib last week after having an argument with a staff member I the upscale bar.
A man on the video was heard saying, “Nicolas Cage here is a little f–ked up”, referring to the actor who was sitting on a coach, unshaven, and wearing leopard-print pants and a black shirt. He was barefoot, too.
According to an eyewitness, they thought he was “a homeless man completely drunk and being rowdy.”
“To our shock, it turned [out] to be Nicolas Cage,” the witness said.
“He was completely smashed and was getting into a bit of a fight with the staff.”
“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. He was shouting at people and trying to get into fights and then staff asked him to leave,” the witness said.
Based on the footage, the 57-year-old actor slurred while asking for his shoes but he was given flip-flops which he actually struggled sliding his feet into.
The eyewitness continued, “He was so drunk he could barely get his flip-flops on before being escorted out”. Adding that the actor “asked us if we wanted to come back to his place.”
Cage confronted the staff who decided to throw him out of the bar after he tried to go back inside.
A voice could be heard on the clip saying, “Stop, man.”- Advertisement -
The Face Off actor has been struggling with being drunk. He admitted in March 2019 when he and his fourth wife Erika Koike annulled their Vegas marriage that he was too drunk to actually understand the impact of his actions.
He was interviewed by the Guardian in 2018 where he revealed he keeps himself busy with work to avoid being “self-destructive”.
“Then I’m just going to sit and order two bottles of red wine and dissolve, and I don’t want to be that person, so I have to work,” he said.
