    For Everyone Who Has A Thing For Young Nicolas Cage

    Look, this is not an endorsement of his current state of affairs. I'm just sayin' DEM EYELIDS.

    If you aren't an 80s kid/teen, this might be the only way you think of Nic Cage: sort of handsome in a creepy dad wearing foundation way, but more of an action star than a heartthrob.

    But in the '80s? In the '80s, Nicolas Cage was a full blown hottie.

    His film debut was in a TV pilot called The Best Of Times, where he rocked jorts before jorts were even jorts.

    Where to even start here? The perfectly blown-out hair? The eyebrows fluffy enough to engulf your body like a warm blanket? Those heavy lids? The ever-present chest hair? EVERYTHING?!?!!!

    In Valley Girl he was charming as hell.

    Whatever you're asking, Nic, the answer is Yes. YES.



    In Moonstruck, we were able to admire the majestic sculptures known as "Nic Cage's arms".

    Speaking of which, observe perhaps the secret height of of Nicolas Cage's foxiness: Birdy

    About those arms: In 1986, Cage played famous Toronto sculler Ned Hanlan.

    Young Nicolas Cage also had a pre-Cullen turn as a teen vampire, and needless to say: hot.

    He even made an appearance as an unhappy fast food worker in Fast Times At Ridgemont High

    Standing next to lesser hotness? Proving of his supreme foxiness.

    Thinking about the futility of existence or whatever else is in that giant brain of his? THE HUNKIEST.

    You can raise my Arizona anytime, sir.
