Here’s The Wacky Ways Nicolas Cage Blew $150 Million


Nicolas Cage was a top notch box office hit back in the day. After a series of movie flops and excessive spending, Cage was forced to go into foreclosure on many of his properties and pay back the IRS $6.3 million in taxes. This is why you’ll see him taking on even more shitty roles to pay off his debts. So how exactly did Cage go through $150 million? Check out the 5 craziest things he bought.


5. The LaLaurie Mansion

Cage is said to have owned 15 residences, including a $25 million waterfront home in Newport Beach, California, a $15.7 million countryside estate in Newport, Rhode Island, and an $8.5 million abode in Las Vegas. Cage also bought The LaLaurie Mansion in his prime but is trying sell it off for $3.5 million. Go inside this haunted New Orleans home below.


4. His Own Private Island

Yes Cage spent his checks on what every Hollywood celebrity needs, their own island. Cage bought the Bahamian island Leafy Cay for a cool $3 million.


3. Pigmy Heads

Now that you have these amazing places to live, you need to fill it with stuff right? Cage bought a fancy car (a Lambo for $450,000) and paid $150,000 on the first Superman comic, but what a home really needs is some shrunken Pigmy heads. These are said to be worth thousands though the true price is unknown since they are only sold through an exclusive market.

2. Dinosaur Bones

Cage must have been a little delusional after filming National Treasure. He outbid fellow actor Leonardo DiCaprio in an auction for  a 7-million-year-old dinosaur skull. The $276,000 artifact turned out to be stolen, however, and Cage had to return it to the Mongolian government.

  1. Pet Octopus

Cage naturally needed a pet to keep him company. An exotic dog or cat won’t do for this Hollywood legend. No, Cage spent $150,000 on a pet octopus and all his needs.

Don’t cry for Cage and his excessive spending yet. Despite having to sell some of his extravagant things to settle debts, he still has a net worth of $25 million.
