Nicolas Cage dons cowboy boots as he pushes a trolley full of groceries at a supermarket in Western Australia with wife Riko Shibata

He has been one of Hollywood’s biggest stars for decades. 

But Nicolas Cage proved he is just like the rest of us on Monday, going shopping at a local Asian grocer and supermarket in Busselton, Western Australia with his wife Riko Shibata.

In scenes reminiscent of his Oscar-winning film Leaving Las Vegas, the 59-year-old was seen pushing around a trolley full of shopping.

In an iconic scene from the 1995 film, his character Ben Sanderson goes on a booze shopping spree so he can drink himself to death in Sin City.

But on Monday, he swapped alcohol for fresh vegetables and nappies for the one-year-old daughter he shares with Shibata.

Nicolas wore his signature Elvis-style sunglasses, a velvet hoodie, jeans and cowboy boots as he visited an Asian grocer before heading to a local supermarket.

Wife Riko also opted for a casual look for the outing, wearing white jeans, a white T-shirt and a cardigan.

She finished her look with black combat boots.

He was seen leaving the shopping precinct with a trolley full of vegetables, potatoes, nappies and paper towel.

Annie Liban, the owner of Busselton Food of Asia, told Daily Mail Australia the penny dropped when the A-list actor made his way to the checkout and she noticed his face up close and personal.

‘I said, “You look like Nicolas Cage”, recalled Liban, and he responded, “I am Nicolas Cage’.

She added the Con Air megastar was ‘very polite, very respectful’ and was happy to pose for photos with staff.

‘He was so down to earth,’ she said.

‘They did a lot of shopping, the baby was crying a bit, so they just wanted to get all the stuff done,’ she added.

The actor dropped about $400, stocking up on mostly Japanese food items.

‘He bought lots of Japanese stuff, along with kimchi and fried rice,’ she said.

Nic, Riko, and their daughter August are in the Margaret River to film his next project, The Surfer.

The couple welcomed their daughter August, who is Riko’s first child and Nicolas’ third, in September last year.

The Kick-Ass actor has son Weston Coppola Cage, 32, with ex Christina Fulton and son Kal-El, 18, with ex-wife Alice Kim.

Nicolas will be shooting The Surfer, a psychological thriller, in Western Australia’s most famous surfing and wine region.

CinefestOZ chief executive Cassandra Jordan said of Cage: ‘It is beyond exciting to have something of this calibre shooting in our region.

‘[The film] follows Nicolas Cage, a man returning to his hometown after many years of leaving the region, and it’s all about him up against a local gang of surfers who claim ownership over a secluded beach of his childhood.’
