It became known that 85-year-old Doge Coppola, the mother of Hollywood star Nicolas Cage, has passed away. The brother of the actor Christopher Coppola told about it.

According to him, it happened on May 26, but the family did not want to talk about it with the press. Joy worked as a professional choreographer all her life, in 1962 she gave birth to Christopher, and two years later, Nicholas.

“She had a very difficult life, mental problems. But she managed to teach me a lot. From her I learned what love is. I am sure that only my mother can really teach this,” wrote Cage’s brother on Facebook.
