Nicolas Cage never worked with Marlon Brando, but he was connected through his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola. Coppola directed Brando in two of the actor’s most famous performances in The Godfather and Apocalypse Now. Brando was known for his methodical style and also for his often disruptive demeanor. Coppola and Brando famously clashed on “Apocalypse Now,” especially after Brando showed up to play much heavier than his Colonel Kurtz character was meant to be (per HuffPost).

Despite this, Brando was an acting hero of Cage’s and the then-teen actor had the chance to meet him twice, once at a screening of his uncle’s film “Apocalypse Now” and another time at a screening of Brando’s film “Burn!”. During the latter exchange, Cage earned a classic Brando reaction.

“I met Marlon at my uncle’s house a million years ago. He showed “Apocalypse Now” for the first time. The house was in an uproar. “Marlon Brando is here, Marlon Brando is here.” It was as if he were our King Arthur. I met him again at a screening of his film ‘Burn!’ I said to him, ‘You really were my motivation.’ He said, “Oh, Jesus Christ, Nick, give me a fuckin’ break.” That was it,” Cage told Empire for their Greatest Actors issue.

Cage also met Jerry Lewis, who didn’t curse him but gave an equally unique response to Cage’s praise.
