Hollywood actor, Nicolas Cage believes he ‘got it right’ with his current wife Riko Shibata, 27, after he went through four failed marriages in less than three decades.
Cage, 58, made the admission in a candid interview with the Los Angeles Times, where he was asked to reveal the people/things he cares about most in life.
In his reply, he listed off Riko, who he married in February 2021 after a year of knowing one another.
‘I’m really happily married. I know five is a lot,’ he said, in a reference to the number of times he has tied-the-knot, before adding, ‘But I think I got it right this time.’
The couple first met in Japan in 2020 when Cage was filming Sion Sono’s Prisoners Of Ghostland.
The couple are currently expecting their first baby together.
Cage first married actress Patricia Arquette in April 1995, but their union ended in divorce in 2001. He later went to wed Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of the King Of Rock And Roll, Elvis Presley, one of Cage’s idol’s, in August 2002, which ended just three months later.
The actor found love again with Alice Kim in 2004, which resulted in the birth of his second son, Kal-El, now 16, but their union ended in divorce in 2016. He also shares a son Weston, 31, with former partner Christina Fulton, whom he dated beginning in 1988.
Cage exchanged nuptials with his fourth wife Erika Koike in March 2020, but again split just three months later.
