YOU CAN’T HELP but wonder how famous Nicolas Cage is over in Kazakhstan.

Who ever would have thought that the 53-year-old actor was famous enough to meet the nation’s First Lady?

He got dressed up in some of the country’s traditional clothing and since then, the internet has been pretty amused by the photos.

Yashar Ali from New York Magazine attributed his expression, which appears to be void of any soul, to the fact that he was probably paid for it due to the fact that he’s pretty hard up at the moment.

People immediately took note of his extremely uncomfortable body language.

What happened Nic? Are you OK?

People compared his effort to dress for the occasion as similar to François Hollande’s previous effort.

However, neither of them got as extreme as Steven Seagal on his trip to Kazakhstan for the World Nomad Games.
