Nicolas Cage showed up to a Somerset’s local pub to spend his New Year’s Eve.
What amazed the local people even more was the fact that the Oscar-winning star took into account their presence by buying everyone a drink.
Lucky people of Wells, Somerset, had an amazing start of 2020 as they were greeted with such a kind gesture by Hollywood A-lister.
The incident became viral after the pub-owner, u/Koink, posted a picture on Reddit showing the actor in his Tramways Social Club.
He said: “Nicolas Cage spent NYE in my small, local pub, in Somerset, UK. He bought everyone a drink. Incidentally, he was a total legend, cool dude and is now a member.”
Many people confirmed Cage’s presence in the pub through their comments.
“I was in there when he come in, my partner got a selfie with him,” wrote someone.
Cage who holds property in Las Vegas, United States, also owns a house in Somerset. During an interview in 2018, the actor revealed that he felt ‘more at home’ when he’s in Somerset, England.
“I am a self-confessed Anglophile. I love everything about England; the history, the people, the countryside, the culture – you name it, I love it,” he said.
Speaking of his interests in England, the Lord of War star said: “I love seeing places like Buckingham Palace and all those other fantastic buildings which are steeped in history and culture.
“I love the whole concept of the Royal Family.
“As an American you want to see all those things when you come to Britain but I wanted more than that, I wanted to live among all these great treasures.
“I wanted to be a part of it so I looked for somewhere to call home here.”
The 55-year-old said he love Somerset because the county offers so much to its people. “When I looked at Somerset I just fell in love with the county,” he said.
“It has so much to offer; great countryside, great towns, great people and, of course, it has Glastonbury too.”
Comparing the life in Las Vegas to that in Somerset, Cage said that Las Vegas can be called a ‘party place’ but it can’t be termed as a serene environment to ‘put your feet up.’
The actor added that sometimes, he would even feel like a stranger in his own country.
He added: “I actually feel more at home in England than in America because I do not like what was done to the Native Americans.”
“I always see America as really belonging to the Native Americans. Even though I’m American I still feel like a visitor in my own country.
“It is very different when I’m in England. I know I’m technically still a visitor but I do feel a connection with my ancestry here.”
