Her name is Carla Bruni, a model and singer, who also happens to be France’s first lady, the wife of President Nicholas Sarkozy.
Allen is currently in Paris promoting his new film Whatever Works, and spoke with reporters about who he had his eye on for a leading lady role.
Woody is apparently desperate to direct Carla Bruni. He told reporters, "Without question, Carla Bruni! I'm sure she would be wonderful. She has charisma, and she performs, so she's not a stranger to an audience, and I would cast her in many different ways.”
Unfortunately Woody doesn’t have any current projects to cast Carla in, but he not letting it deter him. He said, "I don't have a story at the moment, but you know, maybe even I'll ask her, if she's interested."
Do you think Carla Bruni would do a Woody Allen film? It definitely takes a certain type of actor to work with him!
