Oscar-winning star Nicolas Cage has credited temperamental exes with preparing him for his role in Gore Verbinski's The Weather Man. The actor - whose ex-wives include Patricia Arquette and LISA MARIE PRESLEY - says his romantic past aligns him with the experiences of his unlucky character, who is regularly bombarded with flying objects. He tells Hotdog magazine, "There have been times when, in my past, girls have thrown glasses at me and things like that."
