There have been more than 100 films starring Nicolas Cage in his career, including such films as "Valley Girl", "Raising Arizona", "Leaving Las Vegas", "Adaptation" and many others, but one of them has left its mark on his fans more than others.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight prior to the premiere of his upcoming film "Renfield", the 59-year-old Oscar winner recalled a bizarre incident with fans who were thrilled with his 1987 romantic comedy "Moonstruck" in which he appeared alongside legendary actress Cher.
There is a scene in the movie where Cher tells him, "Shut up!", and then slaps him. In a recent interview with Cage, he revealed that his fans often recreated this scene and that they would yell, "Snap out of it" and slap him as if he were Cher.
"I got slapped a few times. And that's part of the job, you know," said Cage, whose revelation left his "Renfield" co-star Nicholas Hoult pretty shocked.
As Count Dracula, Nicolas plays a furious character in the film "Renfield", which was directed by Chris McKay.
During this film, Nicholas Hoult plays Renfield, a tormented assistant to Dracula, the most narcissistic boss in all of history, who is the loyal servant of the infamous vampire. Renfield will do whatever it takes to secure his master's prey and answer every challenge his master gives him, no matter how humiliating it may be.
However, now after centuries of obedience to the Prince of Darkness, Renfield is ready to find out if there is life beyond the shadow of such a powerful ruler. The only thing he is lacking is the ability to find a cure for his addiction.
There were many popular roles that Nicolas Cage had in the Hollywood scene that left a huge mark on the industry. There is no in between when it comes to Cage, he is one of those actors that you either like or don't like. We certainly have a great deal of respect and admiration for all he has accomplished in his career in the past.
