“I don’t really know why she wanted me in the movie. She kept fighting for me. She saw me in Peggy Sue Got Married and said it was like watching a two-hour train wreck. It was pretty intimidating to be her leading man.” — Nicolas Cage

"What I like so much about Warhol-and he's actually influenced my acting, especially with Wild at Heart -is that he takes these icons and makes them his own, which is a brave thing to do." -- Nicolas Cage (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“What I like so much about Warhol-and he’s actually influenced my acting, especially with Wild at Heart -is that he takes these icons and makes them his own, which is a brave thing to do. With acting it’s not something you’re supposed to do-you’re never supposed to mimic or copy another person. For Wild at Heart  I thought, ‘Let’s be Elvis’. I’ve always called that my Warhol performance, because I tried to subvert the image.” — Nicolas Cage

"I had to make this man seem plausible as someone who could survive a situation that's incredibly dangerous. Also, I wanted to bring in a spiritual concept, which I hadn't seen in action movies." -- Nicolas Cage (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"As an actor I'm able to drop in and observe. But I think seeing people maimed and mangled, day in and day out, any predilection to psychosis may come out. I don't think I could handle it." -- Nicolas Cage (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“My goal is to never get comfortable with what I’m doing. I don’t think I can grow if I’m comfortable, so I want to push myself a little further. Frankly that’s dangerous, because you can fall on your face or look very silly when you push yourself. But you must have the guts to try.” — Nicolas Cage

"Blaze was easy; I knew he was a man who had been living with a curse for 8 years of having his head light on fire, and the tone that would take." -- Nicolas Cage (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“The first time that I played Ghost Rider. Blaze was easy; I knew he was a man who had been living with a curse for 8 years of having his head light on fire, and the tone that would take. I compared him to a cop, or a paramedic who develops a dark sense of humor to cope with the horrors he has seen. But Blaze has also caused the horrors, so he’s hiding out because he doesn’t want to hurt anyone else. Ghost Rider was an entirely new experience, and he got me thinking.” — Nicolas Cage
