Cage Hits Back At Turner's 'Difficult' Claims

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." But 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."
