Growing up with a grandmother who was an actress, and a famous director uncle – Francis Ford Coppola – Nicolas Cage was transitioned into the public eye slowly at the age of 16, when he filmed his first movie. Since this time, Cage, has been in the media for his hit blockbuster films, his high-profile relationships, and his financial and legal woes.
Cage is dad to 19-year-old son Weston from a previous marriage, and 4-year-old Kal-El with current wife Alice Kim. In an interview with Access Hollywood, Cage said he tries to provide his home life with a “sense of normalcy.” He then joked about Kal-El discovering his dad is a famous movie star, saying,
My youngest son has started to refer to me as Nicolas Cage from time to time. I have to remind him, ‘I’m Daddy. I’m Daddy.’”
Cage’s latest flick, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, is one that his youngest son would be a fan of, saying, “He’d love this movie. I made this movie for all ages.”
Cage and wife Kim, a former waitress from Los Angeles, have been married since July 2004.
