In life there is a sliding scale of weirdness. It’s not so much math as it is perspective, particularly as it applies to people. Say, for example, your friend told you that he woke up to find a naked stranger eating a Fudgsicle at the foot of his bed—that would be weird, right? But what if Nicolas Cage was telling the story? You’d be like, “Oh, cool. You’re funny.” (True Nic Cage story, BTW.)
We no longer question the actions of a man who once bought a haunted mansion so that he could write the great American horror novel. So when Nicolas Cage tells us that he won’t eat animals that have undignified sex, then you better believe this is a real thing that actually exists.
A few years back, speaking to The Guardian, Cage shared his fascination with certain animals, then took a hard left turn with this gem: “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.”
