Personal Quote:

Nic [Nicolas Cage] was a junior and I was a senior. It's hard to believe he's younger than I am. Nic was like the cool outsider - he kind of had this James Dean quality - but he thinks he was the loser who didn't fit in. But he doesn't realize all the girls think that's hot. See more »
