Nicolas Cage was actually born as Nicolas Kim Coppola, but changed his last name to avoid accusations of nepotism due to being related to legendary director Francis Ford Coppola.

Cage was once married to Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, for a brief period in 2002.  

In the early 2000s, Cage owned a pet octopus, which he would reportedly take with him to movie sets.

 Cage has an extensive collection of rare and valuable comic books, including a copy of Action Comics #1, which features the first appearance of Superman.

Cage is a huge fan of Superman and even named his son Kal-El, which is Superman's birth name.

Cage is known for his eccentric spending habits, which have included purchasing a castle in England and a dinosaur skull.

Cage once claimed to have had a near-death experience while filming Ghost Rider, during which he saw the ghost of a deceased crew member.

In 1997, Cage starred in the music video for the song "Dinner with Gershwin" by Donna Summer.

Cage is a huge fan of the film The Wicker Man and even went on to produce and star in a widely panned remake of the movie in 2006.
