Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage was once one of Hollywood’s top-earning actors according to Forbes Magazine. His net worth was estimated to be an astonishing $150 million dollars.

In order to pay off his debts, he took on numerous poorly written projects which were ridiculed at the box office. And that’s how an A-lister falls from fame.
