Carla Bruni turns film star!

Carla Bruni

Not content with being a supermodel, musician, oh, and the French First Lady, it sounds like Carla Bruni is carving out a new career – as a film star! (Aside: first Irina Lazareanu and now her; what is it with models taking over the movies?) 41-year-old Carla is in talks with famed director Woody Allen to star in his next film. The couple met in Paris in June this year and he was, like many men before, entranced by Carla. ‘She is very beautiful and I’m sure she would have a gift for comedy. I’d give her any part she wanted,’ he said at the time. And Woody visited his new muse at her Presidential residence this week apparently to discuss details of her role in the movie, which he is set to start filming next summer. Carla’s publicist insists ‘nothing is signed yet and it’s too early to discuss’ but didn’t deny the reports. Here’s hoping it all gets the green light. So far we’ve only seen Carla making a cameo as herself in Robert Altman’s 1994 film Pret-a-Porter – and that was hardly a memorable performance! [WWD]
