Nicolas Cage's upcoming film 'Trespass' is a thriller about a wealthy family taken hostage inside their own home by burglars. An unsettling premise in its own right, but for Cage, the scenario hits far closer to home than any of us ever knew.

Speaking with reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival, Cage recalled a similarly frightening (and sorta hilarious) encounter he had in his California home.

According to Cage:
It was two in the morning. I was living in Orange County at the time and was asleep with my wife. My two-year old at the time was in another room. I opened my eyes and there was a naked man wearing my leather jacket eating a Fudgesicle in front of my bed. I know it sounds funny ... but it was horrifying."
In true action hero fashion, Cage resolved the confrontation by talking the man out of his house and calling the authorities to handle it from there. Cage did not press charges as the man had mental problems.

Look for 'Trespass' in theaters on Oct. 14, just don't get your hopes up for fudgesicles.
