For the last decade, Nicolas Cage has starred in a slew of offbeat, mostly indie films not sponsored by Hollywood’s big studios. And as it turns out, he is entirely pleased he left Hollywood behind.
Cage’s latest flick is entitled Pig, a story that follows the life of a celebrity chef who turned his back on stardom and is living out his life with his beloved pet pig. But the character of a man who walked away from the intense glare of the spotlight of fame suits him, Cage said, according to Variety.
“I do feel that I’ve gone into my own wilderness and that I’ve left the small town that is Hollywood,” Cage exclaimed. “I don’t know exactly why Rob left his stardom. It’s never fully explained, and I like that about the movie. But as for me, I don’t know if I’d want to go back.
