Johnny Depp Returns a Favor to Nicolas Cage

Johnny Depp Nicolas Cage

This is actually a great Hollywood story, but only if you can stop asking “really?” in regard to Nicolas Cage’s financial situation. There’s a lot of gossip surrounding the issue. Cage alleges that his business manager failed to do his job, resulting in the actor owing six million to the IRS (ouch, right?). However, points to Cage’s spending habits. The man owns two islands and almost as many cars as Jay Leno, people.

But, sure, if you extract all that it’s a pretty good story. A-list actor , who evidently is better at managing his money, has decided to extend a helping hand. One movie star to another, right? As it turns out, Depp sort of owes his fame to Nicolas Cage (who owes his to Coppola, but that’s a different story).

Johnny Depp was trying to break into the music business when he met twenty-something years ago. The two hit it off, and Cage set Johnny up with a meeting. Next thing you know, Depp gets his film debut in A Nightmare on Elm Street. The rest, as they say, is Hollywood history.

An unnamed source says that Nicolas Cage has yet to agree to Depp’s generous offer. According to this person, Depp told him “basically, not to worry and he’d help him and sort everything out. Johnny feels he owes his career to Nic and now he wants to repay him.”

Isn’t that precious?
