Nicolas Cage can always be counted on for bizarre behavior, and his latest has to do with his strange eating habits. The actor has a “fascination” with all animals, the Sun reports, but it goes a bit further than that. “I actually choose the way I eat according to the way animals have sex,” he says.

What exactly does that mean? Well, “I think fish are very dignified with sex,” he explains. “So are birds. But pigs, not so much. So I don't eat pig meat or things like that. I eat fish and fowl.”
