Nic Cage -- I'm Not Dead Broke!

7/13/2010 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicolas Cage says he ain't penniless -- in fact, the actor shrugged off bankruptcy rumors yesterday like a boss ... sporting the kind of crushed velvet blazer you wear when you don't owe millions in back taxes.

Cage was leaving the set of "The Late Show with David Letterman" -- when the actor signed autographs and dismissed questions about his money problems all at the same time.

How does owing millions make someone penniless?

What happened to his face? he now has Hawk like features. In another year he is going to look like a freaken gargoyle for crying out loud.

Nicolas Cage is EASILY one of the most eccentric people in Hollywood right now and at the same time one of the most successful box office draws of all time. He’s awesome! He’s responsible for Johnny Depp being an actor, owns/owned a DINOSAUR SKULL, and just rocks. Here’s more than enough proof:

How can you not like the guy or at least not find him extremely interesting after reading that?

The point is it is the IRS putting him in this boat. Why don't they take the money out before he is paid like the rest of us? If he does not pay up he can bunk with Wesly Snipes.He does rock though.
