Jump To Nicholas Cage's Stats
With an uncle like Francis Ford Coppola and a literature professor father and a choreographer for a mother, Nicholas Cage grew up with the genes to do all the quirky leading man movie roles that continue to present themselves to him. As his uncle helped launch his career with an appearance in a filmed called Rumble Fish, Cage took over and cut his own path to stardom. With some hiccups along the way, Cage has managed to level out his net worth at $76,640,500.
His half Italian, half German ancestry seems to fit the bombastic roles he chooses to take on. His characters tend to espouse a quirky, humor that can be wild, flamboyant or demure. He has appeared as a FBI agent, a Secret Service agent, a baker, a treasure hunter, a con artist and a criminal. He's had roles portraying drunks, drug users, convicts and a professor. With more than 60 feature films under his belt, Cage is one of the few actors who has earned an Oscar, which he claimed for his performance in Leaving Las Vegas.
Thrice married, Cage shares the honor of having been married to a former wife of the late Michael Jackson. Cage married Lisa Marie Presley in 2002. The pair divorced in 2004. He has been married to his current wife, Alice since 2004.
It seems as though Nicholas has a penchant for buying exclusive, expensive and unique homes, cars, yachts and bobbles. He has owned a medieval castle in Bavaria, a haunted home in New Orleans, an island estate in the Bahamas, a fleet of boats, Rolls Royces and extravagant jewelery. Since 2007, the Internal Revenue Service has been pursuing millions of dollars of back taxes through the forfeiture of many of these items and properties.
As his tussles with the IRS continue, he has been forced to sell or lose a number of his 16 residences all across the United States. What once was a huge pile of money has been slowly sucked away. Cage needs to get back on the screen and apply some of that Academy Award Winning style to build that net worth back to where it could be.
