France's First Lady Carla Bruni Sarkozy to star in Woody Allen film

Film director Woody Allen has asked French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy to star in his next film, she has revealed in an interview.

The wife of President Nicolas Sarkozy told French TV station Canal Plus that she had agreed to appear but did not know what part she would play.

"I cannot in my life miss an opportunity like this," she said.

"I'm not at all an actress. Maybe I'll be absolutely terrible," the former model added.

The 41-year-old, who is also a singer-songwriter, said starring in a movie would be a "great experience".
