Nicholas Cage Separates from Korean American Wife

Nicholas Cage with Alice Kim

Nicholas Cage has separated from his wife of 11 years, Alice Kim, reports the Korea Times.

The only reason it’s being mentioned here is because Cage spoke out against the lack of opportunities for Asian men in Hollywood during an interview in 2013 with Chinese broadcaster CCTV.

During the interview, he cited the son he had with Kim as the reason for his passion about the subject.

“You know, my son is Asian,” he said to CCTV. “He may want to direct one day; he may want to be an actor like his father — and I want that to be open to him. So I want to make some kind of effort to see more of that happen in Hollywood.”

The couple has been separated since January. Their son is now 10.
(Editor note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the couple was divorced. We apologize for the error)

    RE: Nicholas Cage separates from Korean American wife: Is this article about his wife, race or opportunities for their son. Or a blinkered look at the film business . How special. An employee in the US or Canada who hasn’t earned their Directors Guild card or IASTE card really would flounder. Would that be beneath the son of Mr Cage and his wife. There was no mention of his technical or artistic skill, If their son is a child then dream big It’s a global business as you you should well know. What hapless Publicist dreamed up this ploy for attention.
