Poor Nicolas Cage: despite being a national treasure (punny!) and one of the great actors working today, his hammy and over-the-top acting style has led him to be the butt of many Internet memes. Nicolas Cage’s hair through the years, Nic Cage As Everyone, the Whicker Man mashup, the Nic Cage song , that other Nic Cage mashup…shall we go on?
We hope that Nic realizes that all these tributes are made out of love, because some of our favorite movies would be so boring if he wasn’t there to crazy them up. In honor of that, we present to you our 12 favorite photos of Cage smiling. Look, he’s having such a good time. Ha-ha!, everyone!
