Carla Bruni to Star in Woody Allen's New Movie

From French First Lady to big screen leading lady. Woody Allen has given Carla Bruni a starring role in his next film.

Carla, who married Nicolas Sarkozy shortly after he became French President in 2007, had become Woody's latest muse and she's reportedly accepted a role in one of his upcoming movies.

“I would like to work with Carla Bruni,” Woody said last year. “I’m sure she would be wonderful. She has charisma and she performs, so she’s not unknown to an audience, and I would cast her in many different ways.

“She is an accomplished artist, she is very beautiful and I am sure she would have a gift for comedy. I can assure people it would cause no problems with President Sarkozy, or with the image of France.”

Woody is staying mum on details surrounding the possible movie role, but we'll keep you guys updated on more info soon! Would you want to see the First Lady of France as an actress?
