Carla Bruni: I’m more in demand than the Queen
"The wife of Nicolas Sarkozy made the declaration while discussing her role in Woody Allen's latest film, Midnight in Paris, which opened the Cannes Film Festival last night.
"Allen cast Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy after she and her husband invited him to breakfast at the Elysée Palace. She plays a museum tour guide in the Parisian-set comedy and is on screen for three minutes.
"Referring to the director, Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy said: When he was asked in a press conference if he would dream of casting the Queen of England, he said he'd rather cast me, which made me extremely happy and a lot of my artist friends actors and actresses, of which I have many jealous. Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy, 43, said she was the only first lady to be approached by Allen because she is an artiste."
