Cage spends New Year's Eve in a small pub – and gets everyone a drink
US actor Nicolas Cage stunned regulars at a small Somerset pub by spending New Year’s Eve there – and buying them all a drink.
The Oscar winner, 55, was a “total legend” and a “cool dude”, one local, Koink, said on Reddit.
He posted: “Nicolas Cage spent NYE in my small, local pub, in Somerset. He bought everyone a drink.”
A photo shows Cage behind the bar of the Tramways Social Club, while in another, he is seen posing for a selfie.
“Our newest member, Nicolas Cage,” the club posted on its Facebook page.
Membership is £10 a year, and half that for pensioners, the club says on its website.
It was recently “refurbished and brought up to a modern high standard of finish and comfort”.
Posting on the Facebook page, one reveller described Cage as a “legend”, saying it was “so kind of him to have bought us all a drink”.
Lorraine Barrett, who got the selfie, posted: “Happy new year Nicolas Cage, thank you for making a small club happy by your presence. You are now a member of the Tramways.”
The star reportedly has a house in Baltonsborough, near Glastonbury, and used to live in Bath, where he turned on the city’s Christmas lights in 2009.
Cage won his Academy Award, in addition to a Golden Globe and Screen Actors’ Guild Award, for his role as an alcoholic Hollywood writer in Leaving Las Vegas.
He has also appeared in Face/Off, Con Air, and City Of Angels.
