How Nicolas Cage blew $150m fortune on islands, cars and zoo animals to end up broke
Movie star Nicolas Cage became the poster boy for blockbuster films following a string of hits in the 80s and 90s but ploughed through his huge fortune on a string of extravagant purchases
Nicolas Cage has been a local in Hollywood for years on end - but he ended up broke after blowing his millions.
The actor, 56, has been the poster boy for blockbuster films since he launched his acting career back in 1983
From starring in film National Treasure, to bagging a role in Snake Eyes, Nicolas Cage - real name Nicolas Coppola - soon put his name on the map.
An accumulation of his lead roles in successful movies led him to become a multi-millionaire, with the actor at one point becoming a top earner in Hollywood being worth an eye-watering $150 million.
But sadly his fortune didn't last.
