Nicolas Cage has no regrets. He is an actor, who has been in romantic comedies, dramas, science fiction and action movies says that during his career he has regretted nothing, he wanted to prove to critics that he had what it took to play all such roles. He acted in Valley Girl, Racing with the Moon (1984), Birdy, Peggy Sue Got Married, Raising Arizona, Moonstruck, Vampire’s Kiss, Wild at Heart, Honeymoon in Vegas, and Red Rock West. He never had a problem accepting any role, as he says he was motivated in doing so because it was said that he couldn’t. Speaking about his regrets to Red Bull’s Red Bulletin , he said:
”I don’t look at it like that. Much has been made of the fact that I made many action movies.
”The reason I did that was because the first time people said, you couldn’t do it. ‘You are not an action hero, forget it’. So what you saw was a dramatic actor acting like an action hero, trying to find characters that were interesting within the genre.
”And then I tried to mix in a little ‘Lord of War’, a little ‘World Trade Center’, ‘The Weather Man’ and ‘Bad Lieutenant’ and keep the spectrum going. Now having done that, I want to focus on the dramatic kind of filmmaking.”
The star described his latest role in ‘Joe’ as the continued ”process of reinventing” himself, with a keen focus on deeper characters he could get to grips with. He added:
”I am in the process of reinventing myself in terms of the movies I want to do. I am returning to my roots, which is independently spirited, dramatic characters.
”Before ‘Joe’, I had taken a year off to re-evaluate everything I had done, different kinds of performances I had done, the more operatic and more baroque stuff like ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’, ‘Drive Angry’ or ‘Season of the Witch’.
”I wanted to find something where I could use my life experience, my memories and my emotions.”
