Fan Facts: Nicolas Cage (star of `Face/Off')
Friday 07 November 1997
Back to life: Despite the emotionally draining experience of playing a suicidal alcoholic, Cage said the role did not make him consider giving up drinking.
Study time: To prepare for the film he watched how drunks behaved in The Volcano, Days of Wine and Roses, The Lost Weekend and Arthur.
Um, thanks: After winning the Oscar, Cage thanked Dudley Moore for his performance as a alcoholic in Arthur, which he said most resembled the real thing.
Film tragedy: The screenwriter of Leaving Las Vegas, John O'Brien, didn't live to see his autobiographical script filmed. He committed suicide before the film went into production.
True romance: Hollywood legend has it that after dating actress Patricia Arquette in 1987, Cage swore that he would marry her some day. They were eventually married in 1995.
Garage notes: Cage is an enthusiastic collector when it comes to cars. He owns a Ferrari, a 1967 metallic blue Corvette Stingray, a 1967 black- on-black Chevelle and a Bentley.
Recent purchase: Cage spent pounds 350,000 this March on a Lamborghini that was owned by the Shah of Iran.
