OSCAR-winning actor Nicolas Cage has married for the third time.

The LEAVING LAS VEGAS star, 40, wed 20-year-old ALICE KIM on Friday (30JUL04) at a private ceremony on a ranch in northern California, says publicist ANNETT WOLF (corr).

It is the third wedding for Cage, 40, who split with his previous wife Lisa Marie Presley after less than four months in 2002. Before that, he was married for six years to actress Patricia Arquette.

Kim, a former sushi waitress, met Cage when the actor visited the Los Angeles restaurant where she worked. This is her first marriage.

They started dating in February (04) and reportedly became engaged after two months.
