Nicolas Cage discussed his current endeavours, claiming that in the last few years of his career, he has done “the finest work of his life.”
The Pig actor was asked in an interview with People Magazine whether there was anything he would tell his’real-life early-career self.’
The actor, who is 58 years old, said, “It should be OK, in my opinion. I’d say that your dreams — the real Nicky, the Nicky who first saw Midnight Cowboy on a funky old television in Louise Vogelsang, my grandmother’s house and had his heartstrings pulled and his heart torn out — I’d say that we’re going to make some movies down the road that you’ll have that feeling again.”
“‘I never had a career, only work,’ I always tell myself. What I mean is that when you get into this career-minded image of one’s self — and I won’t name names — it can be a slippery slope, and it can lead to things like believing in your own mythos and taking yourself much too seriously “The actor came to an end.
“You become pretentious and then you fall into the realm of diva, and that’s when mistakes happen in your personal life and on camera.”
