London: Hollywood star Nicolas Cage doesn`t bemoan working with special effects used in movies these days, as he considers acting to be all about `imagination`.

The 46-year-old actor`s upcoming movie `The Sorcerer`s Apprentice` included many scenes shot in front of green screen
with a number of special effects involved in the post-production, a news website.

"Acting is imagination. It`s acting, that`s what it`s all about. I actually enjoy working with green screen because I can imagine all that stuff happening," Cage said.

Cage insists he enjoys work after the challenges he faced playing twin brothers in his 2002 film `Adaptation` "I really cut my teeth on a movie I made called Adaptation where I had to imagine four page dialogue scenes with my twin brother who`s nothing more than a tennis ball and a gas can," he said.
