Nicolas Cage claims he remembers being inside his mother's womb, and, well, we need a minute to process that.

But honestly, if anyone could make that statement believable, it would be him.

Cage was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week where he participated in "The Colbert Questionert."

After answering life's tough questions like "Apples or oranges?" and "Window or aisle?" Cage was asked about his earliest memory.

The Renfield star pondered a moment and then revealed:

"Listen, I know this sounds really far out, and I don't know if it's real or not, but sometimes I think I can go all the way back to in utero and feeling like I could see faces in the dark or something."

He continued:

"I know that sounds powerfully abstract, but that somehow seems like maybe it happened."

He completed his response:

"Now that I am no longer in utero, I would have to imagine perhaps it was vocal vibrations resonating through to me in that stage going way back."
"That comes to mind."

Nicolas Cage Takes The Colbert

Viewers of the segment were highly entertained by Cage's response... but also not in the least surprised.

After hearing Cage out, Colbert replied:

"I buy it. I buy it."

And, honestly, we think we might, too.
