Lisa Marie Presley’s marriage to Nicolas Cage broke her personal record. People called her one-year-and-a-half marriage to Michael Jackson “short-lived,” but her union with the National Treasure actor lasted even less.

Cage on his failed marriage to Elvis' daughter

Shortly after the separation, Cage sat down with Barbara Walters (this woman can get anyone to open up!) and discussed a range of things, including his marriage to Presley.

Their relationship started after they met at a party, Cage told Walters. He fell for Presley right then and there! And it wasn’t because of her famous dad, of whom Cage is a big fan, he said.

Cage and Presley tied the knot in August 2002, shortly after their whirlwind romance began. As the actor admitted, the decision wasn’t very thought-through. In hindsight, he realized they shouldn’t have rushed things:

I wish we couldn’t have rushed the marriage, and sometimes I regret rushing the divorce.

The actor said he missed his ex-wife "every day". But he added that he didn’t think they could back together and also said he was satisfied with being good friends with her.

Moving on

Both Cage and Presley moved on with their lives not long after they parted. Presley married guitarist Michael Lockwood in 2006 and gave birth to twin girls in 2008, becoming a mother-of-four.

She filed for divorce from Lockwood in 2016.

In 2004, Cage married Alice Kim, whom he met at an LA restaurant where she was working as a waitress. They welcomed a son, Kal-El, in 2005 (Cage also has an adult son from his past relationship). Cage and Kim separated in 2016.

Do you think it’s possible for Cage and Presley to reunite, now that both are divorced?
