Nicolas Cage Broke? Where’d All His Money Go and How Much Had He Earned?

When you have so much money how do you go broke? What did he spend it on? How much money did he really have? See how much money Nicolas cage got payed for each film.

If you made this much money could you ever be in financial difficulty and go broke? Nicolas cage has earned an incredible amount of money over the course of his career, where has the money gone? Cage has been in over 60 movies, and has spent his money on, among a lot of other things, a donation of $2 million to Amnesty International, and the purchase of numerous homes and cars. He seems to have a thing about castles, having lived in a fake castle near Los Angeles, and later owning a small castle in Bavaria, Germany. Here is a list of some of his film earnings, while you read through it think how easy or difficult it would be to blow all that money.

So he has made over 60 films and from these nine alone made over $94 million. I know the tax probably took a big slice of it, oh sorry, the tax didn’t get their cut, and that’s what all this is about!

 

Obviously the list goes on, but you get the idea. My conclusion is that we shouldn’t worry too much about this actor’s financial situation, it could be worse. He is a brilliant actor in my opinion and I hope he gets through this crisis, sells off a property or two, pays back the owed taxes, and continues to entertain us in the movies.

    Many artists go through this phase. Some recover, and some go downward spiral. I do hope he recovers. I watch his films.

    These people don’t know what to do with their money, they don’t deserve it, they are just throwing it away why not give it to the poor. I bet they would value it more.

    When people earn so much money it is so easy to become complacent in matters of money management.

    Yes, Nicholas cage is good actor but they need to know how to manage there money. He has children and wife to think about. How does wife feel when this happens etc. it does affect the whole family and can they recover? Some stars do and other do not only time will tell on his next movies.
    Thanks Lee Ness
