Well i can understand that someone wants to pay less taxes ... don't we all after all ? But this is a bold and near-crazy move. Why not go to the USA or Canada or whatever country out there ? Why Russia ?
I like the actor but he seems to go down the Busey/Nolte road of crazyness.
Not to mention, Russia, nor are any of the post-Soviet republics are all warzones and gangsters as portrayed in Hollywood films. Also, throughout history Russia and France had close relations and respected each other's cultures. That's why it's a logical choice. Not everyone rushed out to the UK or US of A.
