During an interview with Variety to promote his new movie Mom and Dad alongside director Brian Taylor and co-stars Selma Blair and Anne Winters at the Toronto International Film Festival, Cage shot down a question about going overboard in certain scenes by explaining that he sets the bar for exaggerated performances.
“You show me where the top is, and I’ll let you know whether I’m over it or not, all right,” he told the interviewer. “I design where the top is.”
The Oscar winner went on to explain why he doesn’t like to describe his craft as “acting” in classic Cage style. “[Taylor] knows how spiritual acting is for me,” he said. “I don’t even like the word acting anymore because it implies lying in some way. I don’t act. I feel and I imagine and I channel.”
