Nicolas Cage is a character, and he's played some of our favourite characters to date. He's also been playing the role of dad since 1990 when his first son was born, and now he even plays the role of grandpa to his four grandchildren. Nicolas's sons have grown up on Hollywood film sets and with famous friends but, but they still lead fairly low-key lives, all things told. Nicolas himself doesn't have an Instagram to share pictures of his boys, but we do catch glimpses of them on red carpets and at events. Ahead, get to know both of Nicolas's sons a little bit better.
Weston Coppola Cage
Weston Coppola Cage was born Dec. 26, 1990. He is Nicolas Cage's oldest son and his only child with ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton. Weston has been in two black metal bands, Eyes of Noctum and Arsh Anubis. At one point, Weston and his mother had their own fashion collection of menswear and womenswear, as well as some accessories. It was called FULCAGE. He's acted alongside his dad, as well as in roles of his own. Of his acting, Weston told the Daily Mail in 2019, "My father introduced me to the importance of the many intricacies in acting, the dynamics of it. The importance of delivery, character background study and research. The best acting advice I've received is from my father. He told me about the importance of utilising your imagination, your expressions and voice — a homeostasis of all those things together to really express your character's desires."
Weston spent his childhood in the presence of Hollywood legends who were friends of his dad's — Jim Carrey, Cary Elwes, and others. He flew all over the world at his dad's side while he took on major film roles, and even said in 2019 that he still has hope for the two of them filming something together. "I would really love to be on a TV series with my father. That's something we've always liked to do together," he told the Daily Mail.
Weston also has four children of his own to keep him busy, sons born in 2014 and 2016 and twin girls born in 2020. He often shares pictures of his family on Instagram.
Kal-El Coppola Cage
Kal-El Coppola Cage was born Oct. 3, 2005. He is Nicolas Cage's youngest son and his only child with ex-wife Alice Kim. He is, of course, named after Superman, whom Nicolas is a huge fan of. He's also followed in his dad's footsteps a bit and landed a voice role in Teen Titans GO! to the Movies. Like Weston, Kal-El no doubt spends time with his dad on various film sets when he's not at home with his mother, whom Nicolas split from in 2016 after over a decade together. Unlike Weston, Kal-El's life seems to be a little bit more low-key, though, and he seems to mostly stay out of the spotlight.
