    I was today years old when I found out that “Nicolas Cage” is not the name that “Nicolas Cage” was born with

      So that must mean you’re actually “Toddler” years old 😐….. or just totally uncultured 🤷‍♂️

    • ThA MAN C MAcK

      @Gabriel Leroux
      Oh yea, knowing that really makes you cultured.
      I’ve known this for @ least 2 decades and that doesn’t mean sheeit.

    • Gabriel Leroux

      November 23, 2022 at 2:56 pm

      @ThA MAN C MAcK exactly , you’ve known that for 2 decades and still have a mediocre culture , so imagine how weak is the culture of someone who didn’t know this fact …

      @Gabriel Leroux
      That what you don’t get. Genius.
      I’ve been all over , experienced many different cultures in person 1st hand and knowing Nick Cage is a fake name has nothing to do with being cultured or how cultured I am or am not.

    The fact that is first explanation for “cage” is just basic toxic cultural appropriation ……. He just dropped BIG time in my esteem

      You have to be one of the dumbest people to ever live.

      Naming himself after his favorite comic book character not a big deal

    • Anym

      November 23, 2022 at 6:06 pm

      How the fck is it cultural appropriation? 1. Luke Cage is a made up character. it’s not real. 2. believe it or not, there are many people with the same last name. A last name is automagically tied to one person or culture

    • Gabriel Leroux

      November 23, 2022 at 6:53 pm

      All of you toxic haters can go massage your eyeballs with sandpaper 😡😡🖕

    • Lifted Marco

      November 23, 2022 at 6:59 pm

      @Gabriel Leroux says the guy who thinks liking a super hero of a different skin color is ”toxic cultural appropriation”💀💀💀

    Explain the hair plugs

    • John Werner

      November 23, 2022 at 3:01 pm

      It’s common in Hollywood along with Botox

    • Samuel

      November 23, 2022 at 5:15 pm

      I mean he had a face transplant in the 90s so hair transplant isn’t too far removed

    • Anony-Mousse 8

      November 25, 2022 at 12:46 am

      Simple reason; to look better and younger.

    • Jo NoSaY

      November 25, 2022 at 1:10 am

      @Samuel 😂🤣

    • Jo NoSaY

      November 25, 2022 at 1:10 am

      @Anony-Mousse 8 yeah, but it made him look worse lol, and after he stopped getting Major Movies and started his straight-to-dvd career 😫

    • Jules King

      The best piece of movie trivia ever is that Nic Cage was supposed to be cast as SuperMan but the movie got cancelled

  9. Claudia Claudia

    November 23, 2022 at 3:15 pm

    Nicholas cage is the real deal SKULL&BONES

  10. DINESH

  12. Mark Maurer

    Oh? did being a Coppola make acting hard?? Here’s the world’s most unbearable talent

    내 어린시절에 영화 채널 틀면 자주 볼 수 있는 분 중 하나 니콜 아저씨.. 세월이 흐르면서 나도 그렇고 저 분도 나이를 많이 드셨네ㅜㅜ 오래오래 건강하셨으면 합니다..

  15. KainzMusic

    November 23, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Nicholas Cage is an icon!

  16. Nicholas Federico

    November 24, 2022 at 1:12 am

    And this is why Nicolas Cage is one of the coolest actors of all time, I don’t care what anyone says, Ghost Rider 1 was a great movie

  17. Mr Green

    November 24, 2022 at 3:53 am

    This man is genius even abed couldn’t understand him

  18. Donovan Simmons

    November 24, 2022 at 6:55 am

    That makes sense! I forgot he changed his last name tbh 😅😂

  19. Brendan

    November 24, 2022 at 8:01 am

    i feel dumb but whats the connection between his last name being copalla and people referencing apocalypse now?

    • Wesley Riot

      November 24, 2022 at 8:40 am

      It was directed by Francis ford Coppola?

    • Harley Fleming

      November 25, 2022 at 10:55 am

      ​@Wesley Riot aka, his uncle, who he begged for movie roles. He actually changed his name to avoid accusations of nepotism, which would be accurate lol

    • Wesley Riot

      November 25, 2022 at 11:09 am

      @Harley Fleming well yeah obviously

  20. Martin Solomon

    November 24, 2022 at 8:37 am

    Nice wig

  21. Wesley Riot

    November 24, 2022 at 8:39 am

    He literally named himself after a comic character. What a legend

    • John

      November 27, 2022 at 6:15 pm

      He also named one of his kids Kal-El after Superman.

    • Wesley Riot

      November 27, 2022 at 7:32 pm

      @John fuckin nerd! I love it

    • John Lucas

      November 28, 2022 at 5:13 pm

      @Wesley Riot Yeah. Because if I remember right he was almost a Superman choice for a movie.

    • Yunghotspot

      November 28, 2022 at 8:05 pm

      @John Lucas no it was his superman movie, you can google him in the costume, they unfortunately cancelled the film before much could be done

  22. W

    November 24, 2022 at 8:48 am

    that’s pretty dumb you changed your name because another after would say certain types of comments why didn’t you just be a man and deal with it, that’s one of the weirdest things in the world to change your name cuz of what someone else is doing. don’t ever play poker cuz you’re figured out before the game starts

  23. SarahsNewSkates S

    November 24, 2022 at 9:42 am

    Keep doing you Mr. Cage, keep. doing. you.

  24. Benjamin

    November 24, 2022 at 9:56 am

    He is so cool

  25. Albert Willemsen

    November 24, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    What’s that smell though?

  26. A.I.O TECH

    November 25, 2022 at 10:39 am

    “give this man a ghost rider”

  27. Harley Fleming

    November 25, 2022 at 10:54 am

    Lol, that’s a great cover story, except he definitely change his name to avoid accusations (probably accurate ones) of nepotism, seeing how that movie he referenced was created by his uncle Francis Ford Coppola, ha

  28. Afonso Lucas

    November 25, 2022 at 4:02 pm

    Well, now I too have some things on my list. It’s also a sneaky way of Van saying what he’d like as a gift haha.

  29. HappyFunJenn

    November 25, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    YaY! He’s a Marvel geek like the rest of us

    • Mathias Walker

      November 28, 2022 at 11:33 am

      He’s a comic nerd first and foremost.
      Named his kid Cal-El and was almost Superman in the 90s.

  30. parafraceren

    November 26, 2022 at 10:28 am

    This makes no sense at all. If you had a problem with them using your first name in such a context, why did you only change your LAST name???? 😂

  31. kimber Lee

    November 27, 2022 at 1:56 am

    LEGEND!! This man has made movies to be so many characters, to challenge himself, to do things differently and I’ve always loved that you never know what he’ll do next! His “bizarre” screen appearances are great because he’s not afraid to really put himself out there. AMAZING ACTOR!

  32. Ghost

    November 27, 2022 at 5:02 am

    Cage that is my name

  33. darci peeps

    November 28, 2022 at 12:32 am

    I don’t get why people said that quote with his previous last name?
