Nicolas Cage Visits His Tomb In New Orleans With Mystery Woman
Cage and his unnamed female companion were visiting the nine-foot pyramid tomb, which the actor bought for himself back in 2010... Because, well, why wouldn't you?
Housed at the St Louis Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans' French Quarter - the same ancient cemetery where Marie Laveau, who was known as the Queen of Voodoo, is buried - the tomb is inscribed with the Latin phrase 'omnia ab uno', which translates to 'everything from one'.
The National Treasure star has never explained what prompted him to make the eccentric purchase, but he has been known for his eclectic taste - having previously treated himself to two islands in the Bahamas and a pet octopus.
Stopping by the cemetery to check in on his tomb, Cage held hands with the woman as they arrived at around 1pm during New Orleans' Mardi Gras celebrations on Saturday 22 February.
They were both wearing leather trousers, a leather jacket and a white t-shirt, along with matching Mardi Gras beads around their necks.
An onlooker, who filmed the couple, said: "They pulled up in a private car with a driver.
"He just walked in with the woman.
"He was probably in there for 15 minutes looking at his tomb and then he came out.
"He waved to everyone and said: 'Have a great Mardis Gras'.

The sighting follows Cage's short-lived marriage to make-up artist Erika Koike last year, which lasted just four days before the 56-year-old actor filed for divorce.
Having tied the knot in Las Vegas, Cage sought an annulment just days after he married Koike in March 2019, arguing he had been too intoxicated to understand his actions when they tied the knot.
The divorce was eventually granted in May.
Cage - who famously wed Elvis Presley's daughter Lisa Marie in 2002, but filed for divorce just two months later - has since revealed the brief marriage to Koike was an experience that upset him.
He said in an interview with The New York Times Magazine: "That was a recent breakup.
"I don't really want to talk about it. I was pretty upset about that and the way things happened."
Cage has also been married to Patricia Arquette (1995-2001) and Alice Kim (2004-2016).
Koike, it seems, was equally devastated by what happened.
Speaking to the Daily Mail for the first time about her failed marriage, she said: "Nic did what he did."
She added: "We're not going to reconcile or get back together.
"Nic could have come to me and talked to me, not publicly humiliate me.
"I'm hurt and mistreated, it's unfair, but the case is sealed, and my lawyer won't let me speak until we are all done."
