On December 26, 1990, Weston Coppola Cage was born. He is Nicolas Cage's eldest son and the father of his only kid with ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton. Weston told the Daily Mail in 2019 about his acting, "My father educated me to the value of the numerous complexities of acting, the dynamics of it."
He also said that he doesn't talk to his father often because they don't get along. According to Weston, his father is not happy that he has chosen a normal job instead of becoming an actor like him.
Weston explained that he doesn't want to end up like his dad by getting married and having kids early, which is why he doesn't have a girlfriend or a boyfriend.
He also said that he doesn't drink alcohol because it makes him feel bad after doing some scenes in movies where he has to act drunk.
In addition, Weston claims that he doesn't use drugs because it's not good for your mind when you are an actor.
He concluded by saying that he wants to be known as a serious actor who works hard on his craft.
Since his mother is a former model, it's possible that she took care of her son when his father was filming movies. However, we don't know anything about any other family members except for this son.
