Nicolas Cage only eats animals he thinks have sex in the right way.
Nicolas Cage only eats the meat of animals he thinks have sex the right way.
The 'Kick-Ass' star believes fish and chickens mate in a "dignified" manner and he will consequently eat them, where as he avoids pork because he believes pigs fornicate in an unsavoury manner.
He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "I love all animals. I have a fascination with fish, birds, whales - sentient life - insects, reptiles.
"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. But pigs, not so much. So I don't eat pig meat or things like that. I eat fish and fowl."
Cage's fascination with the animal kingdom led to him buying a two-headed snake to protect him when he filmed latest movie 'Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans'.
He said: "I met the snake and said, 'Maybe this will be my bodyguard in New Orleans.' "
Cage, 46, is known for his eccentricities and previously professed a willingness to tattoo his head for his role in upcoming vengeance movie 'Drive Angry'.
He said: "Originally I was going to shave my head and tattoo my scalp.
"But the producer didn't want me to do that. So then I decided that I was gonna embrace the Celtic roots on the other side of my family. So I dyed the hair lighter because I think that's what the character should look like."
