Though he's best known for his roles in films like 'Leaving Las Vegas' and 'National Treasure,' Nicolas Cage has also garnered a reputation for his bad decisions—especially when it comes to money. It makes sense, since he was at one time a top earner, worth a cool US$150 million. Unfortunately, in a textbook example of what not to do when you're suddenly wealthy, the actor squandered his fortune away on a series of wildly extravagant and unnecessary purchases, eventually owing the IRS over $6 million in taxes, CNBC reports. 

Cage was last reported to be worth around $25 million, which still isn't anything to feel sorry about, but it's far from his peak. To know what we mean, take a look at the actor's most expensive and extravagant purchases from his filthy rich and blissfully ignorant days.
