Just a little over six months after they said “I do,” National Treasure star Nicolas Cage and his wife Riko Shibata struck a few interesting poses for Flaunt magazine’s latest cover.
“Nicolas Cage and Riko Shibata cover The Magic Issue, out now,” Flaunt declared in a post on Thursday (October 22nd). The magazine revealed that Cage is starring in the new film Pig, which is about an “isolationist truffle forager who endeavors on a quest to retrieve his stolen pig and best friend, Brandy.”
Flaunt also shared that Nicolas Cages’ new film presents pain—and its bedfellow grief—through a convex panorama of estranged family and haute cuisine and micro-fame and arthritically revisionist purpose. “There’s humor, oddity, and tragedy.”
Nicolas Cage struck a few poses while wearing a Tom Ford blazer and top with a William Henry bracelet. His wife looked gorgeous in a Tom Ford dress. The couple posed for photographer Noah Dillion.
Nicolas Cage Opens Up About His Career From 2010 to 2020
During his interview with Flaunt magazine, Nicolas Cage opened up about the 42 films he did between 2010 and 2020. “I would love to look ahead to mostly independently-sported projects. I would say that’s about staying true to the imagination. And I am enjoying that.”
Nicolas Cage also said he’s “digging” the work he did with SpectreVision’s Color Out of Space and Mandy. “The latter could be described as a celluloid meets revengeful psilocybin, the neural pathway-clearing fungus among us.”
While speaking about his role in Pig, Nicolas Cage revealed, “I am loving what happened with Pig. What Michael [Sarnoski, director] and Vanessa [Block, co-writer] got up to, and Alex [Wolff, co-actor] and Adam [Arkin, co-actor]. That was like lightning in a bottle.”
Also speaking about his life before acting, Cage recalled, “My first gig was selling tickets and popcorn at a cinema called the Fairfax Movie Theater. That job required so much… being a waiter is a hard job, man. Like, ‘Sir, you have to put your cigarette out,’ and he blows smoke in my face. But the beauty of that job was I got to see the big screen, I got to see all these fun movies and try to figure out how do I go from this guy to that guy, and I enjoyed that.”
Cage then noted that he wanted to be a part of film from a very young age. He also grew up loving movies. He also loved Orson Welles and Citizen Kane. “I loved what could be accomplished and what you could feel with a really powerful film performance. I thought it to be more powerful than anything else. More powerful than painting, or music, or books. So that was my first plan.”
