Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim, 20-Year Age Difference

Nicolas Cage Sugar Daddy and Alice Kim

Nicolas Cage Sugar Daddy and Alice KimActor Nico­las Cage accepted his first minor movie role in 1982’s Fast Times at Ridge­mont High, hop­ing that it would be his ticket to Hol­ly­wood. It might have been—the film was fairly well-received—if most of Cage’s scenes weren’t cut out of the final ver­sion. Cage wound up tak­ing a job at a local movie the­atre until his famous direc­tor uncle, Fran­cis Ford Cop­pola, gave him a break in his 1983 film Rum­ble Fish. That same year, Cage also landed a lead role in the movie Val­ley Girl. From that point on, the roles kept pour­ing in.

Cage has proven his com­mit­ment to acting—he has even devel­oped his own unique act­ing style called “Nou­veau Shamanic.” Unfor­tu­nately, his level of com­mit­ment in rela­tion­ships isn’t quite as strong. In 1995, Cage mar­ried Patri­cia Arquette. Although they acted like a real cou­ple in pub­lic for years, they had actu­ally sep­a­rated only nine months into the marriage.

His divorce from Arquette was final­ized in Novem­ber 2001, and less than a year later, he mar­ried Lisa Marie Pres­ley, Elvis Presley’s daugh­ter and Michael Jackson’s ex-wife. They exchanged vows in August 2002 and Pres­ley filed for divorce in Novem­ber of the same year. They actu­ally spent more time in divorce pro­ceed­ings than they did being mar­ried to one another.

Fol­low­ing the high-profile split from Pres­ley, Cage decided to try his luck with some­one a lit­tle less famous and a whole lot younger. In 2004, the 40-year-old actor mar­ried Alice Kim, a 20-year-old wait­ress he met just months ear­lier while din­ing at an L.A. restau­rant. The fol­low­ing year, Kim gave birth to their son, Kal-El.

Despite it being his longest rela­tion­ship by far, it hasn’t been all roses for Cage and Kim. In 2011, the actor was arrested after the celebrity cou­ple became embroiled in a heated argu­ment on the street. Cage, who was said to be under the influ­ence of a lot of alco­hol, report­edly pushed his young wife before aggres­sively grab­bing her by the arm. He spent a night in jail on charges of domes­tic abuse, pub­lic intox­i­ca­tion, and dis­turb­ing the peace. Kim denied being assaulted, and the charges were later dropped.

The inci­dent didn’t seem to affect their rela­tion­ship too much because Cage and Kim attended a fam­ily wed­ding together a cou­ple days later. Cage has spent almost 10 years with Kim—impressive con­sid­er­ing his his­tory. Per­haps the trick to tying down this older man was find­ing a younger woman.
