Woody Allen wants to cast the French First Lady in his next film?

The Hollywood Reporter has this to say on the matter:
Woody Allen would like to use France's first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy for a film role, the director said on RTL radio Thursday."I'm sure she would be wonderful," he said through a translator. "She's got charisma, she's already acted so she's not unknown to an audience. There are a lot of ways I could use her though I don't have a story for her at the moment," he said."But I'll certainly talk to her about it and I'll ask her if she's interested."Bruni-Sarkozy, one of the world's top models before starting a career as a singer and marrying President Nicolas Sarkozy last year, has appeared briefly on the big screen, playing herself in Robert Altman's 1994 fashion satire "Pret-a-Porter."Allen, whose latest film "Whatever Works" comes out in France next month, plans to shoot a film in Paris next year, RTL said.
-I trust in all Woody casting decisions regarding women...thoughts?


  1. just a little side not

    but much to my surprise, and dismay, "Whatever Works" is getting absolutely slammed by the critics

    i'm so disappointed, but I will see it anyway

  2. likewise on the flick, but I'd see the french one

  3. I'll be seeing Whatever Works soon, so look out for the review

  4. definitely trust the Woodman's taste in women...
