Nicolas Cage: I'm No Math Whiz

Nicolas Cage holds on tight to wife Alice Kim at the premiere of his upcoming film National Treasure: Book of Secrets at the Roppongi Hills mega-complex on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan.

This sequel (the original came out in 2004) involves Abraham Lincoln, his assassin John Wilkes Booth and eighteen missing pages from Booth‘s diary.

While doing a press junket in Japan, Cage, 43, admitted the hardest scene to film was a “balancing platform” where he found himself on a flat rock perched above an abyss and quickly had to ‘calculate’ the centre of gravity and shift positions.

“The balancing platform sequence … was complicated because it dealt with physics and mathematics,” Cage said. “Math was never really my strong point, so to have to figure out how to act the math … was a bit of a challenge for me.”

National Treasure: Book of Secrets opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, Dec. 21.

    I love this movie. It keeps you on the edge. Even though it is fiction, it incorporates real American history.

    do I have to go back to waitressing to hook a rich husband??
    I thought it was behind me & beneath me, but obviously she was in the right place at the right time. Oh, does this mean men love you to wait on them? Hmm…

    So cute to see an old school alum up there on the stage, working it! Justin Bartha and I went to middle school / high school, and has really come a long way! He was always a doll back then, and I’m so happy to see him doing so well!

    His wife looks like a hotter, Asian version of Vanessa Slutgens!

    Mayka Says:

    I sure hope nobody is suggesting she looks like a mail order bride simply because she’s Asian…

    As for the age, sure his wife looks younger than he, but hey, if they’re happy, does it really matter?

    I think they are happy together, and if NICK is a FREAK like u all say he is…. then seriously i dont think his wife would last THIS LONG with someone weird and crazy. I personally think she KNOWS she is lucky, and she grew fond of him otherwise she would have just got pregnant and left him and took a chuck of his money. But she stayed for so long… either its love.. or patience.. and asian women dont really have patience… well from what i heard. lol
