We're starting to think that Nicolas Cage bought and built his ridiculous 9-foot tall pyramid-shaped tomb in a New Orleans cemetery in an attempt to throw us off the track that he's actually immortal.
When a photo of a man from 1870 who bore an extreme resemblance to the actor surfaced online, we thought it was humorous, but now comes more proof that Cage might actually be centuries old.
The (allegedly) 48-year-old actor was asked about the Civil War era photo back in February and he told David Letterman he thought it looked like a "slowed down version" of himself. He also went on to deny beliefs that he's a vampire, by explaining that the very existence of the picture would seem to denounce the vampire theory, since folklore states a vampire's photo can't be taken.
"I don't drink blood and last time I looked in the mirror, I had a reflection, so I'm not going with the vampire theory," he concluded.
