Nicolas Cage says he can remember what it was like inside his mother's womb
| Last updated
Nicolas Cage has opened up about his earliest memory.
While some might have a vivid or hazy recollection of finding sticks in the backyard or having cuddles with your parents, it seems the Con Air star has a far more intense vision.
It's hard to believe, but he thinks his first ever memory was being inside the womb.
Yes, before he was even born.
“Let me think. Listen, I know this sounds really far out and I don’t know if it’s real or not, but sometimes I think I can go all the way back to in-utero and feeling like I could see faces in the dark or something,” Cage said.
“I know that sounds powerfully abstract, but that somehow seems like maybe it happened.”
“Now that I am no longer in-utero, I would have to imagine it was perhaps vocal vibrations resonating through to me at that stage.
“That’s going way back. I don’t know. That comes to mind… I don’t even know if I remember being in-utero, but that thought has crossed my mind.”
That's the most Nicolas Cage answer imaginable.
If that did indeed happen then it would be pretty hectic to remember being inside the womb and wondering what the hell you're doing there.
That answer alone would have left the audience pondering for days, however Colbert wasn't done with asking the hard questions.
He then flipped the conversation to the completely opposite end of his first enquiry.
The talkshow host wanted to pick the Pig actor's brain about what he thinks happens when someone dies.
Drum roll please...
Cage replied: "Oh, wow. Nobody really knows, I don’t know
“They say that electricity is forever eternal. That the spark keeps going.
"I like to think whatever spark is animating our bodies, once the body passes on, that the spark continues to go.
"But whether or not that electricity has consciousness or not, who can really say?”
There have been a few people over time who have claimed to have died and seen what happens on the other side.
It's hard to know for sure because the person involved isn't actually conscious enough to make a solid judgement on what they saw in the same way people interpret dreams.
