Nicolas Cage auditioned for dating show

Apr 22 2014, 5:28am CDT | by

Nicolas Cage once applied to be a contestant on a dating show.

The 'Joe' actor - who has sons Weston, 23, with ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton and Kal-El, eight, with third wife Alice Kim - was obsessed with 'The Dating Game' as a teenager, and managed to get accepted for the show, despite being only 15 years old, but his father refused to let him take part.

He said: "My first audition I was underage. Only 15. Even that young I tried to be accepted on 'The Dating Game'.

"I used to love seeing that, and always somehow managed to, although my father said I couldn't watch it. Anyhow, he wouldn't let me do the show."

The 50-year-old star - who won the Best Actor Oscar in 1996 for his role in 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' - also insisted he has a very "normal" home life with Alice and Kal-El and is very focused on the future, rather than reliving his former glories.

Speaking to the New York Post newspaper, he said:

"I'm a regular at- home dad to him - not some movie star. I play with him, go out with him, do all those parent-child things like any other father.

"I don't play my old movies. Don't look to make him see them. Don't talk about those old days. I intend to maintain a normal, natural home life. I try to look at the future, not the past.

"The same with my Oscar. I'm living today. I'm a parent. I keep the totems away. My awards are safe. But they're not in my home. The totems are in the past."

You Wouldn't Want To Be Left Behind With These Idiots

Oct 3 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Gawker

The genius of the Left Behind series is the way it combines Roland Emmerich-style disasters with its Biblical lectures. And the new movie version even stars Nicolas Cage. So it's too bad this new movie fails on the "disaster epic" front, because it's too busy torturi ...

A Man, A Plane, A Rapture: 'Left Behind'

Oct 2 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

The world is ending, billions will die, and hell is, literally, coming to Long Island. But the rebooted Left Behind doesn't want to alarm you. Fourteen years ago, as a new millennium's arrival failed to extinguish our doggedly persistent universe, the first Left Behind movie introduced a slithery Antichrist — a U.N. official, of course — and the prospect of global war centered on Jerusalem. Just last month, The Remaining treated the fundamentalist-Christian notion of "the rap ...

Celebs' Weird Japanese Ads They Probably Would Rather You Not Know About!

Sep 30 2014 4:00pm CDT | Source: Perez Hilton

Part of being a celebrity is being in ad campaigns, because you get lots of extra dough for it! But occasionally, some of the commercials might have been a regrettable choice when they look back on them. For example, every single time Nicolas Cage went NUTZ for Fever Pachinko he basically gave US a fever! And while he spoke English in all of his ads, others like Harrison Ford actually learned the ...
