Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage
has hit back after Kathleen Turner
accused him of behaving like a diva when they starred in 1986 comedy Peggy Sue Got Married
. The film - which earned Turner a Best Actress Oscar nomination - was directed by Cage's uncle Francis Ford Coppola
and Turner insisted the actor went to great lengths to disobey his famous relative.
In her forthcoming autobiography, Send Yourself Roses
, Turner, writes, "Everything Francis (Ford Coppola) wanted him (Cage) to do; he went against to show that he wasn't under his uncle's wing. Which was ridiculous. Oh, that stupid voice of his and the fake teeth! Honestly, I cringe to think about it. He caused so many problems."
She also went on to accuse the Face/Off
star of getting in troubled with the police while they were filming. She adds, "He was arrested twice for drunk driving and, I think, once for stealing a dog. He'd come across a Chihuahua he liked and stuck it in his jacket."
However Cage insists the 53-year-old's book is inaccurate. He tells New York Post
gossip column PageSix
, "While I recall Kathleen Turner being a great lady and wonderful actress, the credibility of her biography and her memory is at stake . . . Fact credibility should have been exercised on (her) part."
