Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and American actor Tom Cruise met at the presidential office in Kiev on Monday, following Ukraine’s invitation.
Coming from an acting background himself, the president seemed to have a lot to talk about with Cruise. After exchanging friendly banter, the two discussed a movie that Zelenskiy had worked on in Los Angeles.
Zelenskiy didn’t shy away from compliments either, calling the actor “good-looking, like in the movie.”
According to the presidential office’s press release, the actor revealed that he was interested in finding locations in Ukraine for the filming of his upcoming movie.
Additionally, Zelenskiy informed the actor about a recent law passed in the parliament which is aimed at developing Ukraine’s film industry and attracting foreign producers to shoot movies in the country.
