Nicolas Cage is a man of action even when it comes to talking down the aisle.
The 57-year-old National Treasure star surprised fans on Friday March 5 when he confirmed reports that he had married a girlfriend Riko Shibata, February 26, in Las Vegas. He told E! News in a statement: “It is true and we are very happy.”
The groom wore a Tom Ford tuxedo and the bride wore a handmade Japanese bridal kimono. Cage and Shibata exchanged traditional Catholic and Shinto vows that included poetry Walt Whitman and some haiku, said the actor’s representative.
Cage and Shibata were first seen together in public in February 2020. They were seen in New Orleans in a famous cemetery with a three meter high pyramid. Cage suggested Shibata on FaceTime in August 2020 when he was in Nevada and she was in Japan months after the coronavirus pandemic started. He later fed her a custom black gold and black diamond engagement ring.
