London, (ANI): Carla Bruni, wife of French president Nicolas
Sarkozy, is all set to act in a Woody Allen movie in Paris this
summer. But Allen seems to be concerned about the problems that
would come up because of Bruni being France"s First Lady.
Bruni is to play a supporting role in the movie. The lead role
has landed in the kitty of Oscar winning French actress Marion
Cotillard, reports The Telegraph. Allen told Bruni last year that
she would be a “natural" choice for one his films. But the director
did not have a script ready for the former model. Bruni had then
hinted that she might act in one of Allen"s movies.
"Carla Bruni is not a woman who earns her living as an actress.
She is a first lady. She could be taken away at any moment by other
duties, like a political crisis or an important event. I have to
take account of the risks that there could be, and hiring her is
far from certain," Allen said. Earlier, 42-year-old Bruni has
played herself in Robert Altman"s Pret-a-Porter.
