(Newser) – Woody Allen’s newest leading lady could be France’s first lady. The director thinks Carla Bruni-Sarkozy “would be wonderful” in a film, Reuters reports. The former model has “charisma, she's already acted so she's not unknown to an audience. There are a lot of ways I could use her,” he told RTL radio. “I'll certainly talk to her about it and I'll ask her if she's interested.”
