The marriage scene from one reminded me of the other…
Nicolas Cage: “You bet I do.”
Kip: “You know I do.”
First Fact: “[Nicolas] Cage’s second wife was singer/songwriter Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, of whom Cage is a fan and on whom he based his performance in Wild at Heart. They married on August 10, 2002 and filed for divorce on November 25, 2002, after 108 days of marriage; their divorce was finalized on May 16, 2004. The divorce proceeding was longer than the marriage.” Wikipedia
Second Fact: “Twenty days after her divorce from [her first husband] Keough, [Lisa Marie] Presley married singer Michael Jackson on May 26, 1994, in the Dominican Republic. They had first met when the seven-year-old Presley attended several of his concerts in Las Vegas. According to Yahoo.com, when they met again years later, “things moved very quickly”, with Jackson proposing over the telephone after four months.” Wikipedia
Third Fact: “To avoid the appearance of nepotism as the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, [Nicolas Kim Copolla]… changed his name early in his career to Nicolas Cage.” Wikipedia
This post is dedicated to Scott. RIP, buddy.
(I know how much he gets annoyed when his rest is disturbed, and rest is important, so may as well be peaceful.)
