Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage's 40th birthday party took an unconventional twist on Saturday (13DEC03) - when his grandmother waltzed in with a pony.

The ADAPTATION star won't actually turn 40 until January (04), but opted to get the festivities started early with a Tinseltown bash.

While the likes of Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Demi Moore and ASHTON KUTCHER drew attention from fellow revellers, the show was stolen by Cage's grandmother, who arrived with a black pony as a birthday treat.
