Why Nicolas Cage Should Be Your Life Coach
Kick-Ass star Nic Cage has had some huge ups and downs in his life. Here are six lessons you can glean from his mistakes—and what to steal from his successes.
Cage Don't: Committing too quickly. Cage, an Elvis fan, married Lisa Marie Presley—essentially a priceless, living Elvis collectible item—for a grand total of 108 days.
You Do: As many of us learn after breakups, being infatuated is different from being in love. "It's tempting to be drawn to the most awe-inspiring partner possible, but the requirements to sustain marriage are much more than that spark of attraction," says Scott Haltzman, a doctor and the author of The Secrets of Happily Married Men. That also goes for marrying because your friends think she's out of your league or your parents don't approve—these qualities make both marriage and divorce more difficult than they already are.
