Washington (ANI): French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has added a new feather to her cap – she has now become an actress. Dressed in a white blouse and jeans, Bruni-Sarkozy stepped before cameras alongside Owen Wilson in Paris in a film directed by Woody Allen.
The scenes, shot around the Pantheon in Paris's fifth arrondissement, will appear in Allen's current project, 'Paris In Midnight". "Carla and Woody got along incredibly well on the set," People magazine quoted a source as saying. "They talked constantly and laughed quite a lot between takes. Owen as well," the source added.
Paris In Midnight is a 1920s Jazz-Age period costume piece featuring Wilson, Marion Cotillard and Adrian Brody told largely in flashbacks. Bruni-Sarkozy is playing the director of a Paris museum with Oscar winner Cotillard playing her subordinate.
"Carla has a tiny role in the film," says a member of her entourage. "In any case, she won't be stealing the spotlight from the other actors." In November, Bruni-Sarkozy, officially announced that she'd taken the part, but said she wasn't expecting to be perfect.
"I go into everything blindly, or I'd never do anything at all," she said during a television interview on France's Canal+. I am not an actress at all. Maybe I'll be completely hopeless, but I can't miss an opportunity like this one in my life. When I''m a grandmother, I'd like to be able to say I made a film with Woody Allen," she added.
