Cage To Sue Turner Over 'False' Book Claims

LATEST: Hollywood star NICOLAS CAGE has begun legal proceedings against his PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED co-star KATHLEEN TUNER after she accused him of drunk driving and theft in her new autobiography. In the autobiography, Send Yourself Roses, the 53-year-old insists Cage went to great lengths to disobey his uncle and the director of the 1986 comedy, Francis Ford Coppola - and even got in trouble with the police while filming. 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. "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." On Friday (08Feb08) Cage, 44, has issued libel proceedings against the actress at the High Court in London. A spokesman for the actor says, "The libel action follows false allegations that appear in the forthcoming autobiography. As legal proceedings have been commenced, it would be inappropriate to comment further."
