Carla Bruni is Woody Allen’s latest ‘muse’June 19th, 2009 - 5:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 19 (ANI): Filmmaker Woody Allen says he would love to cast French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in one of his films - insisting she has the charisma for the job.
The 73-year-old director, who’s in Paris for promoting his new film ‘Whatever Works’, was asked what strong personality he would most like to see star in one of his movies - to which he replied “Without question, Carla Bruni!”
Meanwhile, Allen is expected to visit the Elysee presidential palace during his stay to meet with President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, reports The Telegraph.
Carla’s sister Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi is herself a well-known actress and director whose first autobiographical feature depicts her sister - played by Chiara Mastroianni - as a guitar-strumming seductress with whom she is barely on speaking terms.
Allen will start shooting his next film in London on July 13 including Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Freido Pinto and the young British actress Lucy Punch. (ANI)
