Nicolas Cage Does Not Appreciate Internet Memes Mocking His Intense Acting Style

Nicolas Cage has always been an intense actor but the internet memes inspired by him may be going a bit too far for the actor’s taste.

In an interview with IndieWire promoting his latest film “Mandy”, the Oscar-winning actor addressed the so-called “Cage rage” memes that pop up all over social media.

“I’m sure it’s frustrating for [director] Panos [Cosmatos], who has made what I consider a very lyrical, internal, and poetic work of art, to have this ‘Cage rage’ thing slammed all over his movie,” Cage said. “The internet has kind of done the movie a disservice.”

Cage also explained the thinking behind his unique acting style.

“I did make certain choices to realize my abstract and more ontological fantasies with film performance by playing people who were crazy or by playing people who were on drugs or supernaturally possessed,” he said, “so that I have the licence, if you will, to explore the German Expressionistic style of acting, or the Western kabuki.”

He added, “It’s all very thought out and carefully planned.”
