Hollywood star Nicolas Cage enjoys a low-key birthday with lunch in Glastonbury town centre
He’s known as one of Hollywood’s biggest stars over the past two decades.
But for his 49th birthday, Nicolas Cage was having a low-key day in his adopted hometown of Glastonbury.
The actor and his wife Alice Kim were spotted enjoying a spot of shopping in the town centre, before stopping for lunch at the Abbey Tea Rooms – a regular haunt of Cage when he’s residing in Somerset.

He was also spotted using the cash machine at the Lloyds TSB like any other Glastonbury local.
The Leaving Las Vegas star has split his time between LA and England for several years.
He used to own several houses in the UK, but downsized his property portfolio following a hefty bill for unpaid taxes several years ago.
However, he now owns a family home just outside Glastonbury, where he lives with Alice and their seven-year-old son Kal-el when he’s not away filming.

Speaking last year about his reasons for buying near Glastonbury, Cage said: ‘I came here largely because of my interest in British history and mythology.
‘Because even though I’m far from home in your beautiful country, I can’t help but feel some connection to the land – because of my appreciation for it.
‘And also because of the way England happened, with different elements coming into the area and forming the language, the Romans and the Saxons and all of it.’

Alice, who met Cage when she was working as a waitress in a Los Angeles restaurant, married the actor in 2004.
Previously he was married to Lisa Marie Presley for three months and actress Patricia Arquette, from 1995 until 2001.
He also has a 22-year-old son Weston with ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton.
