Nicolas Cage Wears His Own Face On A T-Shirt, And So Can You

Stars, they’re just like us. They wear T-shirts. Sometimes they wear T-shirts of their celebrity friends on them (see Katy Perry’s Kanye shirt, Rita Ora’s salute to her BFF Cara Delevingne, and the T-shirt arms race that Ryan Gosling and Macaulay Culkin seem to be in.

Not Nicolas Cage, though. For Cage, the only celebrity worth wearing is himself. He was spotted at a Guns N’ Roses concert with Andrew “Dice” Clay wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with a portrait of his own mug on it. Let that sink in for a moment.

The Diceman was wearing a black leather sleeveless vest, a printed black-and-white tee (also sleeveless), fingerless gloves, and oversized aviator glasses, while Cage was clad in Cowboy Couture, which included the following: a cowboy hat, gold mirrored aviators, beaded necklaces with matching bracelet, cocktail rings, a cane (why not?), a wine goblet, fringed black jeans, a holster belt, and *takes giant breath* a T-shirt with a “Rage Face” Cage on it (the best part of his outfit, IMHO). Want to get in on the action and sport a Nic Cage shirt of your own? Lucky you, we rounded up a few.

This is probably the closest approximation we could find of the actual shirt that Nicolas Cage is wearing without asking him. And while it may not have the PJ Crook-esque artwork, you can’t really beat the manic stare found on cartoon Cage’s face. Side note: Redbubble seems to be THE place to shop for your Nicolas Cage shirts. I mean, look at this.

For those who want to take the Nic Cage “Rage Face” to the next level, there’s this tee by Beloved. It features an all-over print of the same face, which you can neatly coordinate with a sweatshirt, leggings, onesie and even socks depending on your level of mania and/or dedication.

Consider yourself a romantic and a fan of National Treasure? Then this baseball tee with faded lettering might be the shirt for you to gift to your sweetie.

I take back everything I said about the previous shirt. The California-born actor is OUR national treasure, on par with Mona Lisa and the Parthenon. How else would you classify an actor who has an extraordinarily large and complex body of work who just happens to be related to the Coppolas? Which makes this the perfect shirt for all the Italian-American art school kids out there.

At some point, it became a thing to Photoshop Cage’s head onto different animals. I don’t really know why there’s a T-shirt that features his face atop a dragon’s body, but I don’t really care. Neither should you. You should instead just get lost in the majesty of this tee instead.

Think the Nicolas cage “Rage Face”/”You Don’t Say?” meme is too played out? Why not slip this on instead? It carries through with the Nicolas-Cage-on-animal-bodies trend while still alluding to Vampire’s Kiss.

Hey ladies, afraid of commitment? Me too. Why not just put on a pair of Nicolas Cage earrings on instead. And at $9, you can use your extra cash to buy a stack of DVDs featuring the many faces of Cage. We recommend Valley Girl and Con Air, BTW.
