Is Woody Allen’s New Muse France’s First Lady?

Speaking in Paris, at the premiere of his new movie, “Whatever Works,” Woody Allen said that he’d love to work with the country’s first lady.

Allen was asked what real-life personality would make a good character for one of his films, he said, “if I could, Carla Bruni.  Without a doubt.  I’m sure she’d be marvelous. She has charisma and is used to being in front of people. I’d give her any role.”

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, is a former model turned singer turned wife of a president.  She did appear in Robert Altman’s “Pret-a-Porter,” playing herself.

Woody Allen is scheduled to shoot a movie in France in 2010.  Maybe Bruni would be interested in stopping by set

Bruni-Sarkozy, a former model-turned-singer, has never appeared as an actress, though she has at least one notable film credit to her name – playing herself in 1994’s Prêt-à-Porter,” the late Robert Altman’s satirical look at the fashion industry.

While Allen, who begins filming in France in Sept 2010, has yet to ask Bruni-Sarkozy, when asked about widely-circulating rumors that he has been invited to the Elysées Palais (the official residence of the French President) this weekend for a private dinner with both Bruni-Sarkozy and husband Nicolas Sarkozy, Allen replied, “chances are good.”
