We learned a whole lot about Nicolas Cage this year, thanks to the movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, in which he played himself.

But even Nicolas Cage himself wasn’t sure who he was during his youth. We’re not talking about confusion over his character or personality — we’re talking aliens, folks.

In the latest dose of awesomeness from one of Hollywood’s most eccentric actors, Cage recently revealed that it took him a while to truly believe he was a human being.

According to multiple media reports, Nicolas Cage recently told Rampstyle magazine, “My father told me he felt like he had to introduce himself to me because I was such an alien.”

He continued: “I was shocked the day I went to the doctor’s office as a child and I found out that I had normal organs and a normal skeleton because I was certain I was from another planet.”

Cage’s Career, at Least, Is Out of This World

Thus far, Cage’s only “close encounter” with an alien species, as far as his film roles go, was in 2019’s Color Out of Space. Adapted from a short story by the hugely influential science-fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft, the movie featured a performance by Cage that won him an award at the Toronto Film Festival.

Cage juggles more projects than just about any other major actor. That’s infamous because of a massive debt hole he dug for himself by making expensive — and, even more so, bizarre — purchases ranging from albino king cobras to a pair of islands in the Bahamas.

As relayed by The Hollywood Reporter, Cage is in “various stages of discussions” on a National Treasure sequel. He’s also discussing a sequel to Face/Off,THR reported.

One wonders if there will ever be a day when Nicolas Cage runs out of WTF? stories from his life. Let’s hope not.
