Nicolas Cage admits he isn't a vampire

Is Nicolas Cage an immortal creature running around, reinventing himself every 75 years? reports that Cage denies this unusual rumor, and says he's not an immortal vampire whose image was caught in the Civil-War era. Cage stated as much on David Letterman's Late Show.

"I don't drink blood, and last time I looked in the mirror I had a reflection."

Cage understands the confusion with the Tennessee man in the 1890 photo. The eBay seller claims the photograph is of a "walking undead/ vampire" who "reinvents himself once every 75 years."

"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," Cage stated.

What a way to burst our blood thirsty bubble. And there goes our True Blood dream of Cage as a real life Civil-War vampire.
