Early Life

Nicolas Cage was born to August Coppola and Joy Vogelsang on 07th January 1964, Long Beach, California, as of now 2021 he is 57 years old. He belongs to a Catholic background but never mentions his religion on public platforms.

His father was a professor of literature and his mother was a dancer and choreographer. August Coppola had an Italian descent whereas Joy Vogelsang had German and Polish ancestry. He belonged to a well-known family where his grandparents Carmine Coppola, who was a composer, and Italia Pennino, an actress. Nicolas Cage’s great grandparents were immigrants from Bernalda, Basilicata.

Cage’s two brothers are New York radio personality Marc “The Cope” Coppola and director Christopher Coppola. Through his father, he is a nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola and of actress Talia Shire, and the cousin of directors Roman Coppola and Sofia Coppola, film producer Gian-Carlo Coppola, and actors Robert Carmine and Jason Schwartzman.

Nicolas studied at Beverly Hills School. After finishing his high school education, he attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Theatre, Film, and Television where he studied acting.

He aspired to act from an early age. Although early in his career he appeared in some of his uncle’s films, he changed his name to Nicholas Cage to avoid the appearance of nepotism as Coppola’s nephew and was inspired, in part, by the Marvel Comics superhero Luke Cage.

Career

Before launching his career, he begged his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola to give him a screen test, but instead he found his place in the cast of the Fast Times at Ridgemont High in 1982, directed by Amy Heckerling, based on the book by Cameron Crowe. He then featured in several successful films, such as Valley Girl (1983), but Coppola’s crime-drama The Cotton Club (1984) launched him to stardom, and since then Cage has been a go-to guy, no matter the genre of the film. Through the ‘80s, Cage had success with such films as Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), Raising Arizona (1987) and Vampire’s Kiss (1988).

In the ‘90s, Nicolas cemented his place among the top actors, thanks to the romantic drama Leaving Las Vegas in 1995, for which he won both Academy, and Golden Globe Award, while the following year he appeared in the cult film The Rock, starring next to Sean Connery. In 1997 had another smash hit – Con Air – also featuring John Cusack and John Malkovich, and the same year had a double role in the sci-fi action film Face/Off, with John Travolta and Joan Allen and he ended the decade by appearing in the action-crime film 8mm (1999), which grossed close to $100 million at the box office.

He started the 2000s with the successful action thriller Gone in Sixty Seconds. Then Cage tried himself as a director, debuting with the crime-drama Sonny in 2002, starring James Franco, Brenda Blethyn and Mena Suvari, but it didn’t have much success. So he continued with his film roles, in 2004 playing Ben Gates in the action adventure National Treasure, and repeating the role in the sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets in 2007, in between which Cage featured in World Trade Center (2006), Ghost Rider (2007)and Grindhouse (2007).

In the 2010s, he starred in Kick-Ass (2010), The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010), Drive Angry (2011), Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011), Joe (2013), The Runner (2015), Dog Eat Dog (2016), Snowden (2016), Mom and Dad (2017), Mandy (2018), Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), and Color Out of Space (2019) and Pig (2021). His participation in various film genres during this time increased his popularity and gained him a cult following.

Nicolas started his profession as a director in 2002 by directing the film Sonny, a low-budget drama starring James Franco as a male prostitute whose mother(Brenda Blethyn) serves as a pimp. However, the film received poor reviews and short-run in a limited number of theaters. He also produced Shadow of the Vampire (2000), the first effort from Saturn Films. In early December 2006, Cage announced at the Bahamas International Film Festival that he planned to curtail his future acting endeavors to pursue other interests. On The Dresden Files for the Sci-Fi Channel, Cage is listed as the executive producer.

His overall wealth has suffered since the start of the 2000s, as he went on a shopping spree.

This resulted in tax problems, and a massive plunging in his net worth. However, it looks like Cage has managed to stop spending more money than he can earn, and maintains a steady $25 million.
