Nicolas Cage Quote: People often say that you should never work with child actors. I think that's all wrong. Children have not had the imagination kicked out of them by life experience and adulthood. So, they still are very much alive with that kind of magical thinking which enables an actor to believe they're in these circumstances and make them real to you.

The invitation had a Christmas ornament on it with Ghost Rider's face on it as a tree.
