London (ANI): Filmmaker Woody Allen has replaced French First Lady
Carla Bruni with Marion Cotillard in his new film. Allen had last
year said that Bruni would be the "natural" choice to star in his
forthcoming flick, set in France, describing her as "wonderful".
However, earlier this year rumour mills went into overdrive
around Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy"s marriage, which seemed to have
left the Allen sour, reports the Daily Express. “Carla Bruni is not
a woman who earns her living as an actress," he recent said. “She
is a first lady. She could be taken away at any moment by other
duties. I have to take account of the risks there could be and
hiring her is far from certain," he added.
Bruni may still get a cameo role but insiders say she will be
eclipsed by Cotillard. “As far as the film is concerned, Marion
will definitely be the French First Lady," a movie insider
