Nicolas Cage accepts Turner’s public apology over drunk-driving claimsApril 5th, 2008 - 5:21 pm ICT by admin
London, Apr 5 (ANI): Hollywood hunk Nicolas Cage has accepted a public apology from co star Kathleen Turner over drunken driving and stealing claims made in her autobiography.
Turner had alleged that Cage was arrested twice for drunk driving while they were shooting for the 1986 film Peggy Sue Got Married.
The 44-year-old actor had filed a “defamation, libel and slander” case against the allegations in the book ‘Send Yourself Roses: My Life, Love and Leading Roles’.
The actress, UK publisher Headline and Associated Newspapers, which extracted the book in the Daily Mail, have also made a substantial donation to the actor’s charity, reports BBC.
Cage’s UK solicitor Simon Smith said the Cage was “extremely pleased” with the result of the case “since he has never been arrested for drink driving, dog theft or anything else”.
“As an actor who stars in many family-friendly films and who has a young child and teenager of his own, Mr Cage was understandably upset at having been wrongly depicted as condoning that sort of reckless, dangerous and criminal behaviour,” BBC quoted Smith, as saying. (ANI)
