Nicolas Cage’s favorite movie is “Vampire’s Kiss”
- Nicolas Cage was recently profiled by GQ.
- In the article, Nicolas Cage’s favorite Nicolas Cage movie was revealed.
- The movie – 1988 vampire kiss — became iconic thanks to Cage’s performance.
While I’ve been ranting and raving on this site for what feels like a year now, Nicolas Cage is back. And with his QG profile interview that was posted this week and then set the internet ablaze, it’s safe to say that his return to the top is officially over (it also helps that his latest film The unbearable weight of massive talent shows a score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes).
In this QG piece, of the many fascinating treats stuffed into it, the one that stood out to me was the mention of Cage’s favorite Nicolas Cage movie.
You would think it would be something like Leaving Las Vegaswhich won him the Oscar for best actor, or The rock, which made him a movie star. But that wouldn’t really be “Nic Cage” from him, would it?
Nicolas Cage’s favorite Nic Cage movie is the 1988 horror comedy vampire kiss
It’s perhaps fitting, then, that Cage’s favorite film in his filmography is the 1988 horror-comedy. vampire kiss.
In his early twenties, he did just about everything he could to put himself on the map. During filming of the 1988 experimental horror comedy vampire kiss, about a delusional yuppie literary agent named Peter Loew who thinks he’s a vampire, he insisted on eating a live cockroach for a hit. (He feels bad about the bug now.) He instilled in Peter the qualities of both his parents, talking to the walls like his mother but with his father’s mid-Atlantic accent. It’s still his favorite movie he’s ever done. [via GQ]
Now, while you may never have seen Vampire’s Kiss in its entirety, you’ve definitely come across it before as it’s easily one of Cage’s most memorable films.
Cage’s last film, The Unbearable weight of massive talent, also stars Pedro Pascal, Sharon Horgan, Ike Barinholtz, Alessandra Mastronardi, Jacob Scipio, Lily Sheen, with Neil Patrick Harris and Tiffany Haddish. The film hits theaters in the United States on Friday, April 22.
