Nicholas Cage has separated from his wife of 11 years, Alice Kim, reports the Korea Times.
The only reason it’s being mentioned here is because Cage spoke out against the lack of opportunities for Asian men in Hollywood during an interview in 2013 with Chinese broadcaster CCTV.
During the interview, he cited the son he had with Kim as the reason for his passion about the subject.
“You know, my son is Asian,” he said to CCTV. “He may want to direct one day; he may want to be an actor like his father — and I want that to be open to him. So I want to make some kind of effort to see more of that happen in Hollywood.”
The couple has been separated since January. Their son is now 10.
