Nicolas Cage: I'm Not A Vampire

YAHOO.COM - Is Nicolas Cage disowning his career-defining role? Does Maria Conchita Alonso know this?

No, "Vampire's Kiss" is still sacred. The actor appeared on "Late Night With David Letterman" Feb. 9 to put a wooden spike to the rumors that the actor's a blood-sucking time traveler from the Civil War era. Considering that fact never made Ken Burns's documentary, Cage shouldn't have needed to prove up that he didn't walk among the undead.

Of course, Cage's credibility was a little suspect since "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" actor was actually on Letterman to promote "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" -- and how could that action flick have gotten a sequel without drawing a little blood?

Still those Internet rumors have been hard to kill, ever since a September 2011 eBay auction of an 1870 photo showing a mustached Tennessee gent who bears an unnerving resemblance to Cage (the short-hair Cage, which gives us the slimmest excuse to mention The Evolution of Nicolas Cage's Hair).

Cage, when faced with the photographic evidence, admitted to a similarity but said, "How can I be polite about this? It's a somewhat slowed-down version of me." He also pointed out that "there's a photograph of me and you can't take pictures... I don't drink blood, and the last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection." click here to read more

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.
