Nicolas Cage Isn't Over The Top, He's Just Operatic

Nicolas Cage Isn't Over The Top, He's Just Operatic

  • Nicolas Cage discusses his acting style and process, interspersed with his best movie moments from classics such as "Face/Off," "The Wicker Man," "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance," and "Honeymoon in Vegas."

    "I prefer to call it 'outside the box,'" he says of his acting being called "over-the-top." "I like to push the envelope of film acting. I don't want to get stuck in a style like naturalism. But my taste is to that."

    He adds, "'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' was the last movie I did where I went operatic. I want to remind people that I can do something minimal and also photo-naturalistic."

    But even if it looks like Cage is going bonkers, he assures us that it's all a part of his master plan. "To me, the words 'over-the-top' mean you're out of control. See, I always feel I'm in control while portraying 'out-of-control.' It's by design."

    Catch Cage in "The Frozen Ground," in theaters August 23.
