$276,000 Dinosaur Skull

If you've ever wondered how an actor like Nicolas Cage - who is willing to take any role offered to him - accrued a $6.2 million tax bill, look no further than his insane purchases.

For example, in 2009 he went to an auction and placed a $276,000 bid for a dinosaur skull, besting fellow bidder Leonardo DiCaprio in the process.

He also once owned a castle, his own island in the Bahamas and a collection of shrunken heads. Sadly, most of his possessions were sold and his houses foreclosed and now he's starring in films where he dresses like a bear and punches women in the face.
