Nicolas Cage (Nicholas Coppola)
“I am still legally Nicholas Coppola but I am Nicolas Cage. I had to reinvent myself. ...
As soon as I went into the casting office under a new name and they didn’t know that there was a connection, I got the part. I felt liberated. It gave me the freedom to become what I wanted to be in my dreams.”
Lana del Rey (Elizabeth Grant)
"I think the reason why I started making music and you know [under] the name Lana Del Rey was really just so I always had a vehicle to actually be exactly who I was … like it was actually a way for me [to feel] free enough to be myself and that was my way of choosing to do that.
