Nicolas Cage doesn't regret any of his career choices.

The 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' star doesn't have a problem with his decision to accept roles in big action movies, insisting he was motivated to try something new because of naysayers claiming he couldn't do it.

Speaking about his regrets to Red Bull's Red Bulletin , he said: ''I don't look at it like that. Much has been made of the fact that I made many action movies.

''The reason I did that was because the first time people said, you couldn't do it. 'You are not an action hero, forget it'. So what you saw was a dramatic actor acting like an action hero, trying to find characters that were interesting within the genre.

''And then I tried to mix in a little 'Lord of War', a little 'World Trade Center', 'The Weather Man' and 'Bad Lieutenant' and keep the spectrum going. Now having done that, I want to focus on the dramatic kind of filmmaking.''

The star described his latest role in 'Joe' as the continued ''process of reinventing'' himself, with a keen focus on deeper characters he could get to grips with.

He added: ''I am in the process of reinventing myself in terms of the movies I want to do. I am returning to my roots, which is independently spirited, dramatic characters.

''Before 'Joe', I had taken a year off to re-evaluate everything I had done, different kinds of performances I had done, the more operatic and more baroque stuff like 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance', 'Drive Angry' or 'Season of the Witch'.

''I wanted to find something where I could use my life experience, my memories and my emotions.''
