Here are all the fun facts you never/aboslutely needed to know about Nicolas Cage: While participating in a European press tour for his new film The Frozen Ground, Nic Cage revealed that his "song of choice" (for what? Life?) is none other than "Waterfalls" by TLC, and that he "dabbled" in drugs for about six months because he wanted to live life like "an art."
Never change, Nic.
The first revelation came from his interview with UK radio station Magic 105.4. According to the Irish Examiner, Cage revealed: "My song of choice is 'Waterfalls' by TLC. It's the only girl-band album I've ever bought!" Did that make anyone else imagine pulling up next to Nic Cage on the street, only to find him blasting TLC's 1994 album CrazySexyCool and singing along to, like, "Creep"? Because that's what we're thinking of right now. It's a troubling thought.
The second, from an interview with BBC: Cage claims that he's a "pretty boring guy" who's living a simple life in Las Vegas, but back in the day, he spent six months of that simple life "dabbling" in drugs. But don't worry, he totally didn't have a problem. He could stop whenever he wanted to.
He added that he believes everyone should "get a bit surreal to help…whatever it is you’re trying to express," because "you need to live your life like an art." So, when the cops arrest you for doing drugs this weekend, just tell them Nic Cage told you to. It'll probably (not) work.
One bonus fun fact: Also from that same press tour for The Frozen Ground: Cage's co-star, Vanessa Hudgens revealed that it was her life's goal to portray prostitutes and druggies in film from a very young age. According to Perez Hilton, Hudgens stated, "I always wanted to play a really heavy role. I remember being like 12 I think and being like 'I want to play a prostitute and do drugs." This is the weirdest press tour ever. But hey, Nic Cage approves:
It's Friday, OK? If we want to just look at memes of Nicolas Cage looking all hopped up and crazy on drugs, that's what we're going to do. Carpe diem.
Don't do drugs, kids.
