You read that right, Nicolas frickin’ Cage just turned 59-years-old. Anyone else feel as old as we do? A true-blue Hollywood mainstay, Cage has been keeping audiences on their toes for over forty years. Part man, part myth, part legend — we couldn’t be happier for a guy who has graced us with some of the most compelling characters ever put to film.
After all, he’s stolen the Declaration of Independence, an Arizona baby, and at least a few fast cars over the course of his career — or at least that’s what it looked like on screen.
Say what you will about his time spent in the spotlight, but Nicolas Cage is known far and wide as one of the nicest actors working today. That may be why fans and friends across the internet have shared their well wishes and praise with reckless abandon.
