Nicolas Cage's Mom Joy Has Sadly Died at 85

Nicolas Cage‘s mother has sadly passed away.

The 57-year-old actor’s mother, Joy Vogelsang, died at the age of 85 on May 26 in Los Angeles, his brother Christopher Coppola confirmed on Facebook.

She was suffering from mental health issues for a while, and was hospitalized for two weeks before her death.

“My dear sweet mama died tonight at 10:33pm. Thank you for all your prayers and being with me the last few days. As weird as all this digital friendship is, as the former ‘DigiVangelist’ knows, it actually can mean something if it comes from the heart. Bless you all,” he wrote.

“She had a very hard life with mental health issues. In all of that painful emotional chaos she still managed to teach me something super important. My mama lioness told me, her middle son cub, that I was affectionate. I was very embarrassed by the term affection. I thought it was a bad thing, a something to laugh at thing,” he continued.

“I learned from my mama what ‘affection’ really means. I believe only a mama can truly teach that. It’s not love thy neighbor. It’s smaller yet bigger. Shake one’s hand with tenderness and meaning. Don’t let your mind wonder while you hug someone. And, and your kiss should definitely be sincere and in the moment…if it is not, well, that adds to hell on earth.”

Nicolas reportedly just began filming on The Retirement Plan with Ashley Greene when his mother passed.

Our thoughts are with Joy‘s loved ones at this difficult time. We have sadly lost all of these stars in 2021.

“The date was chosen to honor the birthday of the groom’s late father,” the rep said, adding that Cage wore a Tom Ford tuxedo. “The bride wore a handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto that required three layers.”

“After the wedding, the happy couple was joined for a small celebration attended by Nicolas‘ ex-wife, Alice (who he remains very good friends with) and their son Kal,” the rep added.

Tweets About 'National Treasure' Movie Went Viral Amid Events at Capitol Building

After the events that happened at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. this week, tweets about the movie National Treasure went viral.

If you didn’t know, one plot line in that movie involved Nicolas Cage‘s character and his team stealing the Declaration of Independence to find a treasure map on the back of it.

“starting to think it’d actually be incredibly easy to steal the declaration of independence,” one person tweeted.

Someone else wrote, “I am no longer impressed that Nicholas Cage managed to steal the Declaration of Independence.”

President Trump‘s supporters stormed into the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, but the Declaration of Independence isn’t actually in that building. It’s located at the National Archives Museum, which is on Constitution Avenue in D.C.

Nicolas Cage's Joe Exotic Series Goes to Amazon, Carole Baskin Reacts!

It was previously announced that Nicolas Cage will be playing the role of Joe Exotic in an upcoming series about the Tiger King star. Now, it has been revealed that Amazon Studios has signed on to help develop the show!

The series will live in the lion’s den with Joe, explore how he became Joe Exotic, and how he lost himself to a character of his own creation.”

Carole Baskin, who is Joe Exotic‘s real-life rival and another star of Tiger King, is opening up about Cage playing the role.

She told Extra, “He is such a favorite actor of mine, and I just don’t know if I can even watch him after seeing that role.”
