Nicolas Cage was obsessed with The Dating Game when he was younger and even applied to be a contestant.

Nicolas Cage once applied to be a contestant on a dating show. The Joe actor - who has sons Weston (23) with ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton and Kal-El (8) with third wife Alice Kim - was obsessed with The Dating Game as a teenager, and managed to get accepted for the show, despite being only 15 years old, but his father refused to let him take part.

‘Even that young I tried to be accepted on The Dating Game’
He said: "My first audition I was underage. Only 15. Even that young I tried to be accepted on The Dating Game. I used to love seeing that, and always somehow managed to, although my father said I couldn't watch it. Anyhow, he wouldn't let me do the show."

The 50-year-old star - who won the Best Actor Oscar in 1996 for his role in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - also insisted he has a very "normal" home life with Alice and Kal-El and is very focused on the future, rather than reliving his former glories.

Speaking to the New York Post newspaper, he said:  "I'm a regular at-home dad to him, not some movie star. I play with him, go out with him, do all those parent-child things like any other father.

I don't play my old movies. Don't look to make him see them.

Don't talk about those old days. I intend to maintain a normal, natural home life. I try to look at the future, not the past. The same with my Oscar. I'm living today. I'm a parent. I keep the totems away. My awards are safe. But they're not in my home. The totems are in the past."
