Inconceivable actor Nicolas Cage posed for a photo opp in Kazakh costume at the 13th Eurasia International Film Festival, and man, was it a doozy.
Cage was photographed wearing a traditional Kazakh coat and hat, usually donned by nomadic horsemen of the steppes, at the festival opener in Kazakhstan's futuristic capital Astana.
- He was photographed standing next to the country's first lady, Sara Nazarbayeva, who seemed blissfully unaware of his discomfort.
- The combination of the unusual attire and his inexplicably befuddled expression of silent suffering caused a minor tempest on social media.
- The 53-year-old didn't seem miserable the entire time at the Eurasia International Film Festival, noticeably perking up while attending a children's film competition and meeting with disabled children.
- The festival runs from July 22nd-July 28th.
