Nicolas Cage wants to make something perfectly clear: he's not a blood-sucking time traveler.
The rumor began after a Civil War-era photo of a man resembling Nic was put up for sale on eBay. But the Ghost Rider star told David Letterman last week, "I don't drink blood, and last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection."
Nic does admit there's an eerie resemblance with the man in the photo, who an eBay seller called a "walking undead/vampire" who "re-invents himself once every 75 years." The star said, "Let me say that there is a resemblance, but how can I be polite about this. It's a somewhat slowed-down version of me."
