Nicholas Cage Claims To Remember Being in the Womb in Crazy Interview

There’s no real good reason to watch late-night television. The hosts are leftist hacks, the jokes are contrived and stale, and the sketches are cringe. That is, of course, unless an American treasure like Nic Cage is on. That is must-see television. Even a lefty like Stephen Colbert couldn’t mess that up.

Recently Cage was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote his new movie Renfield. He has been having a career renaissance over the last few years, and his new Dracula movie looks like another winner. Cage also looks like the perfect actor to play the titular character.

Being transparent and admitting I don’t watch Colbert, I don’t know if his bit “The Colbert Questionnaire” is done for every guest or just because Cage is one of the most intense, interesting men in Hollywood. Whatever the reason, Cage was gold. Check this out.

For most of us, our earliest memories are somewhere around preschool age, maybe a bit earlier. As for Nicolas Cage, his earliest memory is about as Nic Cage as it comes: he says he remembers being in the womb.

Likely due to his nature for being… well, odd, Colbert busted out a hacky bit called “The Colbert Questionnaire.” In it he asks a bunch of quick random questions like “What is the best sandwich?” (Cage picked some muffuletta at a place in New Orleans, which could very well be the correct answer).

Colbert also asked Cage about his earliest memories and that’s when Cage delivered the kind of eccentricities that lead one to spend money on fossils, albino cobras, and a copy of the first Superman comic book.

Nic Cage’s appetite for the unusual is part of the reason he makes so many movies. He spent money on crazy things and got himself in trouble with the tax man. First-edition comic books, fossils, and I am assuming cobras don’t come cheap. How he finished his answers is exactly what makes Nic Cage Nic Cage. When asked about his earliest memories, he replied as only he could.

“Let me think. Listen, I know this sounds really far out and I don’t know if it’s real or not, but sometimes I think I can go all the way back to in utero and feeling like I could see faces in the dark or something,” Cage said.

“I know that sounds powerfully abstract, but that somehow seems like maybe it happened.”“Now that I am no longer in utero, I would have to imagine it was perhaps vocal vibrations resonating through to me at that stage. That’s going way back. I don’t know. That comes to mind,” Cage said. “I don’t even know if I remember being in utero, but that thought has crossed my mind.”

Pure gold like that is why there is only one Nic Cage and why we better appreciate him while we have him. Sure, maybe some of his movies are pure cash-grab garbage, but he has the ability to turn a steaming pile of street chocolate into a compelling watch. That’s why we are lucky to have Cage, and that’s why he can probably really remember being in utero.
