Nicholas Cage: 'I'm a pretty boring guy'

Hollywood star Nicolas Cage may be known as a maverick and bad boy but he claims that image was one he actually chose to create for himself.

He says he now leads a simple life in Las Vegas and describes himself as a 'pretty boring guy'.

But the Oscar winning actor says he worries for young stars now growing up in the spotlight.

He spoke to BBC Breakfast's Charlie Stayt ahead of the release of his new film The Frozen Ground, the true story of a notorious serial killer.
