In celebration of the Hollywood A-lister's action-packed comedy, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, our mission is to activate your funny bone. With that said, keep reading for hilarious (and bizarre) facts about Nicolas Cage.

A vampire?

In 2012, a Seattle-based man sparked rumours that the superstar was a vampire. The man listed a photo from 1870 on eBay of a Tennessee man resembling Cage. The star publicly denied the outlandish rumours. "Now look, I don't drink blood, and the last time I looked in the mirror, I had a reflection."

Cage, magic mushrooms, and a cat

Cage and his cat once munched on magic mushrooms and got high. "The cat ate them voraciously, so I thought, what the heck, I better do it with him. I remember lying on the bed for hours, and Lewis was on my desk across from my bed. We just stared at each other for hours – no moving, just staring at each other, and I did not doubt that he was my brother." Warning, don’t try this at home or anywhere else.

The naked intruder

A naked intruder broke into Cage's home, wore one of his leather jackets, and ate a fudgesicle (a chocolate-flavoured popsicle) at the foot of his bed. Cage calmly asked the intruder to remove his jacket before ordering him to leave. Don't mess with a man and his leather jacket!

Stalked by a mime artist

Cage seems to have a very colourful life on and off-set. On the show Jimmy Kimmel Live, he spoke about being stalked by a mime artist. Yes, a mime artist.
