Face Off Star Nicolas Cage Is convinced ‘Fame Sucks Right Now’

Image1Nicholas Cage says fame is bad right now. The former Honeymoon in Vegas star has convinced himself that being a famous Hollywood actor has just been more difficult during the past few years and he insists that ‘it really sucks to be famous right now’. The Red Rock West actor has fears that maybe the movie business is to connected to personal lives. And does not understand why it is important the public’s interest in his life when he is not on screen. Addressing reporters at the South by Southwest (Sxsw) festival in Austin, Texas, Cage says,

“I started acting because I wanted to be James Dean… This was before everyone had a thing called a smart phone and before the advent of the ‘celebutard’ – just being famous for famous’ sake. I’m not complaining, but it really sucks to be famous right now… Now even the art of film criticism… (a) critic who reviewed (movie) Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans (sic), incorporated how many homes I bought or sold into the review.”

Cage goes on to cite troubled actress Lindsay Lohan as an example of fame gone bad, adding,

“What the hell does Lindsay Lohan’s personal life have to do with her performance in (movie) The Canyons? It should always be about the work itself. What difference does it make if Bill Clinton had an affair – how does that affect his performance as president? In my opinion, I don’t want to see personal aspects of someone’s life eclipse (their) work.”
