Between 1996 and 2011, Nicholas Cage took home $150 million from his acting career. Bizarre roles in films like the The Wicker Man remake helped him earn his fortune, but they were matched by equally bizarre purchases.
In addition to spending $276,000 on a rare Tarbosaurus dinosaur skull, Cage had purchased a wide range of exotic animals, including a cobra. He also bought a private island in the Bahamas, two European castles and a reportedly haunted mansion in New Orleans.
In 2009, Cage sued his former business manager for fraud and negligence. The actor admitted he owed the IRS a total of $14 million in taxes.
He recently appeared in the DC Comics flick, The Flash, and has four upcoming films set for release in 2024.
