Nicolas Cage has some pretty interesting pets–including one he claimed helped with his acting!
Hate him or love him, Nicolas Cage has cemented his name in current pop culture.
Known for his over-enthusiastic acting, spending copious amounts of dough, or the lack of care he takes in choosing his roles, you know his movies are going to be great—even if it's in that awful, campy kind of way.
Well, now you can thank his own personal acting coach: his pet octopus!
Among Nicolas Cage's many purchases, including yachts, a jet, a castle, many cars, and an island, he also allegedly spent $276,000 on animals.
They were Moby and Sheba, his two king cobras, and an unnamed octopus. But why? Was he interest in marine biology? No, he said that it would help him with his acting.
Unfortunately, upkeep became too much and the little guy had to go.
A couple fun of tidbits about Cage: he has 77 credits as an actor.His highest rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes was 95% with 1993's Red Rock West.
The lowest rated? Also 1993's Deadfall at 0%. What a crazy year for the Cage!
