Nicolas Cage To Sue Kathleen Turner Over Book Allegations

by | 12 February 2008

The actor Nicolas Cage is to sue actress Kathleen Turner over allegations made in her autobiography regarding his behaviour on a film set.

London's high court has had a "defamation, libel and slander' case issued, a spokesman claimed.

Ms Turner's book Send Yourself Roses refers to Mr Cage's behaviour during the filming of the 1986 comedy Peggy Sue Got Married, a film in which they both starred.

A spokesman for Mr Cage is quoted as saying the legal action was a result of "false allegation[s] that appear in a forthcoming autobiography".

"As legal proceedings have been commenced, it would be inappropriate to comment further," he said.

It is alleged the book will say that Mr Cage was arrested for drink-driving and caused problems on set during the shoot.

Peggy Sue Got Married earned Ms Turner an Oscar nomination for her performance as the 43-year-old housewife Peggy Sue.

Mr Cage's uncle Francis Ford Coppola directed the film and featured the actor as Ms Turner's onscreen high school boyfriend.

The film received three Oscar nominations in total.
