There is virtually nothing that Nicolas Cage could say these days that would surprise people, as evidenced by his latest quote about his earliest memory.

During a recent appearance on The Late Show, for example, Cage was discussing his earliest memory and revealed that he believes he can remember life from before he was actually born.

“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. I know that sounds powerfully abstract, but that somehow seems like maybe it happened,” Cage said during a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“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,” Cage added. “That’s going way back. I don’t know. That comes to mind… I don’t even know if I remember being in utero, but that thought has crossed my mind.”

Cage’s most recent film Renfield, which hit theaters back in April, is now available on demand. Later this year, Cage is also set to star in Sympathy for the Devil, The Retirement Plan, and Dream Scenario. He’s also in post-production on films such as Arcadian and Longlegs.

The 59-year-old Cage has experienced a massive comeback in recent years, as his performances in films such as Pig and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent led to Cage returning to major studio movies with his star turn as Count Dracula in Renfield.

BroBible’s Post-Credit Podcast recently had the chance to sit down with Cage for an exclusive interview, where we chatted about everything from the most difficult role of his career to what about the future of film inspires him most.
