Carla Bruni Cast in Woody Allen’s New Film
Woody Allen has cast Carla Bruni in his new film. The French First Lady – who is married to French President Nicolas Sarkozy – has accepted Woody’s offer to appear in his as-yet untitled project, but admits she could be “completely useless”.
Carla Bruni, 41, was first approached by Woody Allen, 73, last year after he met her and told her she was “wonderful” and gushed he would love to have the supermodel-turned-singer in one of his movies. Carla Bruni – who married Sarkozy two months after meeting him at a dinner party in Paris – said: “He suggested I appear in his next film. I don’t know what the role is but I said yes. I go into everything blindly or I’d never do anything at all. “I’m not an actress at all. Perhaps I’ll be completely hopeless but I can’t miss an opportunity like this one. When I’m a grandmother I’d like to be able to say I made a film with Woody Allen.”
Carla Bruni – whose acting experience so far consists of only a few brief film appearances – was seen in an episode of ‘The Simpsons’ last week in the US where she was portrayed as a sex-mad femme fatale.
