WOODY ALLEN DIRECTED FIRST LADY CARLA BRUNI-SARKOZY WITH GREAT CARE
France’s first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was a nervous nelly on the Paris set of Woody Allen’s new movie and had to repeat her simple scene 35 times! Carla is very excited about appearing in Woody’s film “Midnight in Paris” with Owen Wilson, but she admits she has little acting experience. Carla had a simple cameo appearance – no lines- where she walked out of a Paris grocery store with a baguette. Over and over again, she tried to make the small part special but couldn’t keep her eyes off the camera! Woody was gentle and respectful in his directing – she was surrounded by bodyguards and her husband President Nicolas was watching. Eventually Carla got it right and everyone relaxed.
