Nicolas Cage says he “NEVER” watches any of his next films. Here’s why:

Fans were disheartened when it was announced that his upcoming film titled “The unbearable weight of massive talent” had been delayed until 2022. However, Nicolas Cage was the least embarrassed by this. Speaking in an interview with Collider, Cage explained that he doesn’t plan to see this movie someday. The film that was originally supposed to be published on March 19, 2021, Cage plays a fictional version of himself.

The plot of the film revolves around Nicolas Cage himself who finds himself both broke and dissatisfied with his career. Due to his financial troubles, he ends up accepting an offer from a wealthy but dangerous fan named Javi (Pedro Pascal). Javi wants Cage to attend a birthday party for a payment of $ 1 million. However, Javi turns out to be a wanted man and the CIA deploys Cage to spy on him. Things get worse as the actor must do nothing to ensure the safety of his family.

However, when it comes to his personal viewing preferences, Nicolas says he can’t bear to watch himself play an unbalanced version of himself. Here’s what Cage had to say exactly when asked how he handled the changes in more traditional acting roles to a role where he played himself:

This is a very good question and I always try to answer it. One of my answers is that I will never see this movie. I’m told it’s a good movie. My manager, Mike Nilon, who is also a producer on it, watched it. He was very happy. I am told that the audience loved the film. But it’s just too much of a crazy trip for me to go to a movie theater and watch myself play the very neurotic, anxious version of me of Tom Gormican. Because he kept pushing me in that direction. I said ‘Tom, it’s not really me. I am really [made of] quiet, meditative and thoughtful moments. I’m not that neurotic, nervous, anxious guy all the time. But he said, “Well, Neurotic Cage is the best Cage. I said ‘okay, okay. Let’s go, man. I’ll do whatever you want. ‘ I won’t see it. But I hope you enjoy it.

The academy award winner admitted he owes his career to bizarre characters audiences can’t get enough of. But in reality, it’s not even a percentage of that.
