Nicolas Kim Coppola, known professionally as Nicolas Cage, is an American actor and filmmaker.
Date of birth
He was born on January 7, 1964.
In his early 20s, he dated Jenny Wright for two years and later linked to Uma Thurman. After a relationship of several years with Christina Fulton, a model, they split amicably and share custody of a son, Weston Cage Coppola (b.1992). He also has a son with his ex-wife, Alice Kim Cage.
After several lacklustre films in the early 1990s, Cage earned critical acclaim with his Oscar-winning performance as a self-destructive alcoholic writer in Leaving Las Vegas.
He went on to star in a series of large-budget explosive-laden films that were hits at the box office. In The Rock (1996), Con Air (1997), and Face/Off (1997), he appeared opposite such actors as Sean Connery, John Cusack, and John Travolta, respectively.
Other notable action films and thrillers include Gone in 60 Seconds (2000), about a group of car thieves attempting a single-night heist of 50 cars; Windtalkers (2002), a portrayal of Navajo code talkers during World War II; and National Treasure (2004) and its sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007), which featured Cage as a treasure hunter searching for historical artifacts.
His notable film work included Kick-Ass (2010), an action comedy about an ordinary teenager who dreams of becoming a superhero, and the action thriller Ghost Rider (2007) and its sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011), in which he appeared as a demonically possessed motorcyclist.
His atypically subdued work in Joe (2013), in which he played a former criminal who takes a protective interest in one of his young employees, was widely acclaimed.
Cage then assumed the role of an airline pilot in Left Behind (2014), an of Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins’s highly successful novel (1995) about the Rapture, and in Oliver Stone’s Snowden (2016) he was cast as a former intelligence officer.
Cage also lent his voice to such animated films as The Croods (2013) and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018).
