How rich is actor Nicolas Cage?
In recent years, Nicolas Cage has not only made headlines with his numerous Hollywood films. Rather, it was also very publicly questioned why the actor has not been able to amass a large fortune so far. Because an estimated fortune of 25 million euros is more like peanuts for an actor in his league. This is especially true when you consider that Nicolas Cage received a fee of around 20 million euros for many of his films. So did his divorces have anything to do with the huge fortune loss? That seems unlikely given that Nicholas Cage’s ex-wives remain wealthy themselves to this day. Where are the approximately 140 million euros (150 million US dollars) that should actually be in the US actor’s account in addition to the current fortune?
Nicolas Cage’s fees
There was even a time when Nicholas Cage was almost broke. At that time he owed the US tax authorities a whopping 12.5 million euros. Between 1996 and 2011, Nicolas Cage earned enormous sums as one of the most successful men in Hollywood, which a look at the following list of Nicolas Cage film fees from this time reveals:
- $20 million fee for “Gone in Sixty Seconds”
- $20 million fee for “National Treasure”
- $16 million fee for “Snake Eyes”
- $20 million fee for “Windtalkers”
At the time, Nick Cage was even included in the Forbes list of highest paid actors . In 2009 alone he is said to have earned 40 million US dollars, i.e. around 38.3 million euros. In the case of Nicolas Cage, however, it quickly became apparent that the actor simply cannot handle money. He made one crazy purchase after another. From luxury cars to exotic pets, the actor has squandered much of his fortune.
Some of the frivolous issues
So what did the leading man from Hollywood smash his entire fortune on his head for? He is said to have had a bet with Leonardo DiCaprio , among others . It was about a dinosaur skull that is said to have been around 67 million years old. Nicholas Coppola finally placed the highest bid of over 287,000 euros. His two albino cobras may have cost the actor a small fortune. The purchase of two islands south of Nassau was also not cheap and cost 6.7 million euros .
Cage also had to have the Lamborghini of the former Shah of Iran. In 1997 he spent more than 430,000 euros on the Lamborghini Miura SVJ. With around 50 cars and 30 motorcycles that have belonged to the TV and film producer in the meantime, his preference for these fast vehicles must have cost him dearly. His collection included 9 Rolls Royce vehicles. He also owns a Ferrari Enzo valued at 957,000 euros , of which only 349 were produced worldwide. The American’s extravagant lifestyle seems to know almost no bounds. So the actor bought two castles at once. One of them in England for 7.65 million euros and another castle in southern Germany.
Pure luxury for Nicolas Cage
Of his four luxury yachts, the largest yacht alone cost around 19 million euros . But the yacht called Sarita also has 12 bedrooms with their own bathrooms. There’s no denying that Nicolas Cage is a real collector and hunter in real life. His collection included, for example, the comic in which Superman first appeared. In addition, the actor’s house is said to have been a veritable zoo. Among his personal pets, Nick Cage not only counted a crocodile and an octopus, but also a shark. In addition to his private jet, his 15 properties around the world have cost him a fortune. At least Nicolas Cage knows where his money went.
His love of art has also cost the Hollywood star dearly. Because his art collection included 50 extremely rare paintings by great artists of international art history. The actor, who was born in California, also showed his generous side to his ex-wives. He gave the ladies rich gifts of diamond jewelry. However, after accumulating debt, Nicolas had to resell many of those properties. One of the comics from his collection alone is said to have brought in 2.07 million euros. We can therefore be curious in the future whether Nicolas Cage has learned from his financial mistakes. Or whether he will also spend his remaining fortune lavishly. The Oscar winner can certainly only afford that as long as he continues to do well in the TV and television business.
