Nicolas Cage, Promoting Trespass, Recalls Brush with Naked Intruder in His Newport Beach Mansion
"I know it sounds funny . . . but it was horrifying," Cage said of the 2 a.m. encounter to a Reuters reporter covering the premiere of Trespass, which co-stars Nicole Kidman.
Police arrested Robert Dennis Furo outside the mansion.
Adamant that he and his family could not stay there, Cage sold the Newport mansion three months later for a then-record $35 million. He now lives in Nassau, Bahamas.
Trespass is scheduled to open Oct. 14.
Guess this means we can expect in a couple years a flick where Cage plays a multi-millionaire whose lavish lifestyle and bad investments drive him into bankruptcy and forced sales at huge losses of his yachts, driving machines, gothic art pieces, dead bat collection and homes around the globe . . .
Speaking of losses, Las Vegas casino and gas station owner Jerry Herbst, who bought the Newport Beach mansion in January 2008 for $35 million--or $10 million more than Cage had paid three years earlier--now has it on the market three years later at $28.5 million.
Things really are tough all over.
