What Does Nicolas Cage Spend His Money On? A $276,000 Dinosaur Skull, Among Other Thingsby

Nicolas Cage is – love him or hate him – one of the most iconic Hollywood stars. While the Oscar winner may have rolled out some classic performances in the likes of Leaving Las Vegas and Raising Arizona, he is perhaps best known in recent years for joining projects which are altogether rather… choice. He’s an actor who is famous now for over-the-top performances – such as those you may have seen in the remake of The Wicker Man – and as such, he’s rewritten himself in such a way that he commands a completely different kind of audience. You have to admire him – while you may not subscribe to the theory that he prefers goofy roles and performances over standard action fare, there are few different actors out there who polarize viewers quite so much.

This week, word regarding his own personal fortune has been grabbing entertainment columns – as it appears that his once lavish lifestyle bolstered by $150 million has since dwindled to $25 million. This is perhaps not pauper’s funds – but it’s thought that his fortune has crashed due to a number of his spectacular purchases. While Cage may not be appearing in the likes of National Treasure nowadays, back in the day he was courting leading man roles that would boost his wealth like no tomorrow – though you really don’t know quite what the man has chosen to spend his hard-earned moolah on in recent years.

It’s thought that, as well as having owned 15 different properties all over the US and even as far afield as Somerset, UK, the actor once paid up to $276,000 for a dinosaur skull – before handing it back to Mongolian authorities after discovering that it had been stolen. He supposedly beat Leonardo DiCaprio to the punch – though this isn’t the only big purchase he’s reportedly made over the years. He’s also thought to have purchased a Bavarian castle 12 years ago – though this has since gone on the market again.

Cage seems to know his market well – he’s a cult actor and therefore seems to keep picking a wealth of different bizarre action roles to add to his resume. He’s clearly well aware of his status as an over-the-top action man – and while it may be bizarre for some viewers these days to imagine Cage pulling in an Oscar, there’s nothing to say he wouldn’t hit those heady heights again – and as for his fortune, we think he should be free to spend it how he feels!
