Officially the most interesting man in Hollywood, Cage has more cocktail party stories than all of us could amass in a lifetime; he adopted 'Live fast, die young' as his motto (adding 'and make average movies' around 2007) and has bought and sold a menagerie of bonkers items in his 49 years on Planet Earth. He also went broke, which was no coincidence. Just imagine the poor accountant whose job is was to find receipts for this little lot…

Because, really, where else are you going to get a Lamborghini from? A car dealership? Clearly you know nothing about Nicolas Cage.
A pyramid-shaped super tomb
Sooner or later, we'll have to face facts: Nicolas Cage is going to die one day. I know, perish the thought. At least when Cage does shuffle off this mortal coil, his eternal resting place will be a 9-foot tall pyramid-shaped super-tomb in New Orleans. It makes other super-tombs look like paupers' graves.

Lots and lots of cars
We know Nicolas Cage likes to drive, and drive angry, but quite what he planned to do with his nine Rolls Royces and around two dozen other assorted vehicles, we've no idea. Maybe he got a little too into character while researching his role in Gone In 60 Seconds. Or maybe he's just mental.
A medieval castle
Did you know Nicolas Cage is from German ancestry? That was reason enough for him to buy (and later sell) the medieval castle of Schloss Neidstein in the Oberpfalz region in Germany. He also bought (and later sold) Midford Castle in Somerset, where he enjoyed "a Dickensian Christmas".

Two yachts and a private Gulfstream jet
If you think Nicolas Cage only travels by land, then friend, you've got another thing coming. Obviously guys like Cage need to have two yachts, because what if one breaks? You don't want your private jet to be your only method of transportation. You'd look like an idiot!
