"I still don’t really fully understand what the fascination is with my face or facial expressions that happen in these memes," he told GQ, the magazine he will grace the cover of this month! 

"I’m like, Well, but why? Just like, What is it?" he says. 

Cage, who has mystified audiences for being an actor that plays fantastic roles alongside major blockbuster flops, recently gained popularity again for being a meme when he hit the red carpet wearing a checkered shirt.

However, Cage was quick to note that he meant to "look like a can of shortbread", and the internet poked fun at the whole thing.

So where does Cage see himself in the future? Well, the famous actor says he's going to "be more selective" on what roles he takes on. It's no secret that the star had a wild ride for his mounting debts, and Cage worked tirelessly on movies to get the debts cleared. 

"I would like to make every movie as if it were my last," he said. 

Along with more movies in his future, Cage details his current wife, who is pregnant, as being the final choice for him. Riko Shibata marks Cages' fourth wife.

"I am a romantic, and when I’m in love, I want to give that person everything I can," he said to the outlet. "It’s my expression of saying, 'I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.' And this is it for me."
