Nicolas Cage has admitted that he spent his childhood believing he was an alien.
In a new interview, the 58-year-old actor admitted he was shocked to discover he had “normal organs and a normal skeleton.”
“My dad told me he felt like introducing himself to me because I was such an alien,” he said ramp style Magazine.
“I was shocked the day I walked into the doctor’s office as a kid and found out I had normal organs and a normal skeleton because I was sure I was from another planet.”
Cage said he also found it difficult to connect with other people, which led to him pursuing a career in art.
“When I looked in David Bowie The man who fell to earthI realized I had to do something, so I became an actor,” he said.
It was announced this summer that one of Cage’s best-known films, national treasure, would be rebooted into a television series.
However, during the announcement at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, it was revealed that Cage would not be in the series, whose first episode will premiere on December 14.
Justin Bartha and Harvey Keitel, who both appeared in the films, will reprise their roles on the series. They will join Lisette Alexis, Breeda Wool and Lyndon Smith.
in the past few years, Cage has also made headlines over the years for the odd collection of objects he owned.

These include two king cobras who would try to “hypnotize” him, and the first-ever comic book featuring Superman, which he bought for $150,000.
Cage even bought a $276,000 dinosaur skull at auction, but was forced to return it to Mongolia after it was discovered it had been illegally kidnapped out of the country.
Regarding the situation, he said: “Of course it should be awarded to his country of origin. But who knew? Also, I never got my money back. So that stunk.”
