Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, former supermodel and wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, is set to make an appearance in Woody Allen’s French-set film which begins shooting in the Summer reports the trades.
The script for the $30 million English-French language is still being finished up, but Bruni is only expected to play a secondary role. She told Canal Plus television that Allen himself had asked the French First Lady to be in the project but wouldn’t tell her what the role was.
“I said ‘yes’… I do everything a little bit blindly. If I don’t, I won’t do anything… I’m not at all an actress. Maybe I’ll be absolutely terrible” said Bruni-Sarkozy.
Allen’s next project, the London-set “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”, stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas.
