Nicolas Cage Blames Himself For Eccentric Image

Nicolas Cage blames himself for fans' assumptions he's eccentric - because he purposefully created that image of himself.

The GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS star, who has often hit headlines for reportedly bizarre behaviour, admits he cooked up a plan to look like the wild man of Hollywood.

He says, "I wanted to generate an image at one time that I thought would be maybe wild and eccentric and fun. I think part of it was a plan to sort of create an image."

But Cage eventually ditched his plan when his 10-year-old son WESTON was born.

He explains, "When I became a father I stopped smoking, I fastened my seatbelt. I had to pull myself out of the narcissism of an actor and put me into the reality that there's someone more important than me that I can care about and love."
