Last year, we told you as soon as we knew that Carla Bruni had a film role up her sleeve and NOW we’ve got the first pictures!
Oh yes, not only is former supermodel and chanteuse (singer songwriter) Carla taking on an acting role *thrills*, but the film, called 'Midnight in Paris' and directed by Woody Allen, stars the gorgeous Marion Cotillard (crush of crushes), Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson!
Marion recently remarked that she was looking forward to filming in Paris, because she’d be in her home town. “I’m happy to be able to be home and sleep in my bed after a day of work. Usually when you work, you make homes everywhere."
She added she was thrilled to have been cast by Woody Allen. “He’s a maestro. I still can’t believe I’m going to do a movie with him.”
Yippedy yooo! Mr Allen is undergoing this latest venture in the hope of doing for Paris what he did for London in 'Match Point' and Barcelona in 'Vicky Christina Barcelona' – two very worthwhile DVD evenings in, might we add.
All that remains for us to do is to point out (quite unnecessarily) how cute the costumes are – all flippy chiffon dresses and gorgeous Parisian je ne sais quoi. Oh and to add check back for more news as we get it!
