Nicolas Cage Slows Acting Career for Family: ‘What’s Important’

Nicolas Cage Slows Acting Career for Family: ‘What’s Important’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Now that Nicolas Cage is almost 60, the NATIONAL TREASURE actor wants to prioritize family over his career.

“60 is coming up. I’d like to read a book a week, I wanna spend more time with my daughter,” Cage told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m taking more stock of what’s important.”

For the actor, that means, “Maybe not make quite as many movies.”

Fox News reported, “Cage and his wife Riko Shibata welcomed their first child together in 2022, a baby girl named August Francesca Coppola Cage. The actor is also a father to his adult sons, Weston and Kal-El, from previous relationships.”

Cage named August after his late father, August Coppola.

Coppola “died from a heart attack at age 75 in 2009, according to his obituary. August’s younger brother, Francis Ford Coppola, is THE GODFATHER trilogy director,” per PEOPLE.

PEOPLE recently reported about how the actor feels about fatherhood: “‘It’s profound, yeah. Totally new experience,’ he shared of life with his youngest child. ‘I love it.’”

According to Cage, he always values time with his family. He even turned down several major roles in the past in order to spend more time with them.

Movieguide® previously reported on the actor’s priorities:

Ahead of his new movie THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT, a satirical look at his nearly 40-year career in Hollywood, Nicolas Cage revealed how he always prioritized family.

The Oscar-winning actor recently highlighted the differences between his on-screen portrayal of himself as an actor and his real life.

“First and foremost … there’s no version of Nic Cage in reality that doesn’t want to spend time with his children,” he told PEOPLE. “There’s no version of Nic Cage that didn’t put family first over career. I turned down LORD OF THE RINGS and I turned down MATRIX because I didn’t want to go to New Zealand for three years or Australia for three years because I needed to be home with my son Weston, that’s a fact.”
