Cage Astounded By His Fearless Wife

NICOLAS CAGE has come to realise just how fearless his new bride ALICE KIM can be, after she read a book just feet away from lions in South Africa.

Following Cage and Kim's 30 July (04) wedding, the couple spent their honeymoon in Corsica and Venice, before jetting off to South Africa, where the actor filmed his movie LORD OF WAR.

And while Cage was thrilled his wife could be with him as he went on safari in Kruger National Park during breaks in filming, he was highly concerned about her fearless nature.

He says, "There were two lions sleeping outside the tent, literally like 10 feet away, a male and a female. I was in the tent and Alice was sitting outside the tent.

"I said, 'Honey, I think it would be a good idea if you came inside the tent and stayed away from the lions.' She said, 'No, it's okay. I'm just reading the DA VINCI CODE, don't worry about it. They're just like regular cats.'

"She thought they were like regular cats, which is pretty interesting. She definitely is brave. In any event, we had a lot of fun."
