Nicolas Cage keeps adding delusional films to his endless filmography. This time it’s the turn of Renfielda film in which he plays Count Dracula.
While Renfield is a more expensive film to produce than the average of Cage’s more recent projects, the artist’s involvement in the project left a lot of cloth to cut.
In a conversation with fans on Reddit, The 59-year-old actor admitted playing the vampire ‘forced’ him to drink some of his own blood. Don’t worry: it wasn’t intentional (not like Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly… More on that later).
In the company of Nicholas Hoult, the protagonist of the film, Cage revealed that he consumed real blood during filming. She admitted it after a user asked her.
“The tusks were real tusks, ceramic and quite sharp. So I bit my lip a couple of times, which made me drink my own blood,” Nicolas said.
And Hoult added, “I like the taste of my own blood,” to which Cage, true to form, added, “There is something warm and fuzzy about this“.
The film directed by Chris McCay He closely follows in the footsteps of Renfield, Dracula’s assistant, whose job it is to serve the Count – quite literally – his victims on a platter. The conflict takes place when the servant decides to leave his master.
Megan and Kelly, fans of blood
Megan Fox he had anticipated it when he announced his marriage to the rapper Machine gun Kelly. “And then we drank each other’s blood”, reads at the end of the famous message published by the Transformers actress in 2022.
I wasn’t kidding. In April of that year, Megan confirmed in a statement with Glamor Magazine that she and Kelly occasionally drink each other’s blood.. Why do they do it? “for ritual reasons”.
“I guess drinking each other’s blood might make people think badly or people imagine us with glasses like in Game of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood. It’s just a few drops, but yes, sometimes we consume each other’s blood just for ritual purposes,” she said.
“I’m much more controlled. I read tarot cards and I like astrology and I do all these metaphysical practices and meditations. And I do rituals on new moons and full moons and everything in between. So when I do, is it a pass or is it used for a reason. And it’s controlled, it’s like, ‘Let’s drop a few drops of blood and everybody drink it.’ It’s much more messy and hectic and chaotic, where he’s willing to open his chest with broken glass and say, ‘Take my soul,’” concluded the actress.
