August 1, 1998

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ With adoring fans and a bevy of stars watching, Nicolas Cage unveiled his star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

``I’m an L.A. boy,″ Cage, 34, told the crowd, many of them screaming women. ``This is my city. I used to live around the corner from here and I used to walk around here and think to myself, `If I could only have my name on one of these stars.‴

About 1,000 people gathered to watch Friday’s ceremony, including Cage’s actress-wife Patricia Arquette, actress-aunt Talia Shire, Courteney Cox, Mike Figgis and Sherry Lansing. The crowd was so big that police considered closing down Hollywood Boulevard.

Cage’s films include ``Moonstruck,″ ``Raising Arizona″ and his Academy Award-winning role as a doomed alcoholic in ``Leaving Las Vegas.″ His new movie, ``Snake Eyes,″ is to open next weekend.
