Kerry tweeted a photo of himself standing in an elevator with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh and British actor John Cleese.

The woman was not identified.

Cleese was a member of the original Monty Python comedy troupe, which is performing in a reunion show for one night in London this summer.

Cleese was known for the popular 1970 “Ministry of Silly Walks” sketch from the "Monty Python's Flying Circus" series, in which he is responsible for developing ways of walking silly.

Kerry arrived in London on Thursday for meetings with his foreign counterparts about how to ease the humanitarian crisis in Syria and advance a political transition there.
