Nicolas Cage Speaks About His Fifth Marriage Saying That It Will Be His Last: "This Is It"
Nicolas Cage explained in his recent GQ cover story why he has no intention of remarrying if he splits from his fifth wife, Riko Shibata.
While talking about the 58-year-old actor's career and current projects, Cage discussed how he loves people completely and plans to spend his life with Shibata.
“I am a romantic, and when I’m in love, I want to give that person everything I can,” he said. “It’s my expression of saying, ‘I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.’ And this is it for me. I mean, this is not happening again. This is it. This is it.”
The couple is expecting their first child together, and Cage also revealed that they are considering two names: Akira Francesco for a boy, and Lennon Augie for a girl.
“Augie was my father’s nickname. And my uncle has decided to change his name to Francesco,” Cage said. “I think it’s so sweet. It’s like a little edamame. A little bean.”
Cage also addressed the public opinion that he was "crazy" during the interview, saying he couldn't have maintained such a long career if he had been.
“The misconception that I’m crazy, which people seem to enjoy, the madman or whatever—to which I simply say you can’t survive 43 years in Hollywood or star in over 120 movies if you’re crazy,” he said. “You’re not going to get bonded. They’re not going to work with you.”
On April 22, Nicolas Cage stars in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. Head here to see Cage’s full interview with GQ.
