So the Internet is abuzz by the hilarious news that Nicolas Cage, the worst actor of our generation, is flat broke, with six million dollars of unpaid taxes and a two million dollar loan that he’s in default on. The actor has already sold his German castle to dig himself out of the pit he’s in, but how did this happen? How did the beloved star of The Wicker Man blow through the millions and millions of dollars he takes home from some of the worst movies we’ve ever seen?
