Nicolas Cage is remembered for iconic films like Leaving Las Vegas , for which he won the Oscar for best actor in 1996, and the Orchid Thief, which also earned him a nomination for the Academy Awards.
There was a time when Nicolas Cage was at the top of the film industry. However, that was more than 20 years ago. In the last decade the actor, a native of California, has had to settle for less important roles as in The Runner or USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage.
The problem with Cage is that he has never been able to give up a whim or an extravaganza that is in the market, and that is why the actor is in the red, according to a publication of the Daily Mail. Nicolas Cage has been able to squander his fortune in record time, going from $150 million to just $25 million. That is, he has spent almost $125 million and to put it in perspective, that is more than what China invested to build the National Stadium in La Sabana ($110 million).
According to the English media, this waste responds to the peculiar purchases that it has made over the last few years. At one point in his life, the actor came to hold the keys to 50 houses, including a $25 million dollar mansion on the Newport beach in California, a cottage in Rhode Island and a house in Las Vegas.
Of course, the strangest possession is the haunted mansion LaLauri, in New Orleans, a property famous for having belonged to the assassin Delphine LaLaurie, and whose story was told in the series American Horror Story: Coven , the third season of this popular series Horror.
