Nicolas Cage: I was awoken by naked man with Fudgesicle

Actor Nicolas Cage told reporters Wednesday that making the movie "Trespass" brought back memories from his own life.

"It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed," he said at the Toronto film festival as he promoted his new thriller.

A Fudgesicle is a frozen snack on a stick.

"I know it sounds funny," he told the press, as reported by Reuters, "but it was horrifying."

Cage told reporters he talked the man with the Fudgesicle out of the house, and the police then arrived. The man with the Fudgesicle turned out to have mental problems, and Cage did not press charges. But he also didn't stay living in that house. Cage has since moved to Nassau, Bahamas.

In the thriller movie, thieves con their way into a mansion where Cage's character lives with his family. His wife is played by Nicole Kidman, Reuters reports. The thieves hold the family for ransom, and the plot follows their negotiations.

"Trespass," directed by Joel Schumacher, is scheduled for release in October.
