Hollywood Actor Reveals He Believed He Was An Alien As A Child

  • “I was shocked the day I went to the doctor’s office as a child and I found out that I had normal organs and a normal skeleton because I was certain I was from another planet,” Cage said, going on to add that one of the main reasons he had believed that was because he had always found relating to other people to be painfully difficult.
  • “My father told me he felt like he had to introduce himself to me because I was such an alien,” Cage said of his father, the late author and film executive August Coppola.
  • Cage then explained that the feeling of being alien — along with a little inspiration from late artist David Bowie — led him toward acting.
