Carla Bruni: Naked, Unsold and Working for Woody Allen (Like Scarlett Johansson Does)

Carla Bruni, steamy chanteuse and — marginally more recently — wife of French Prime Minister Nicholas Sarkozy, has promised Woody Allen first refusal if she starts a film career. Despite admitting that she can’t really act, she said she’d be excited at the idea of working with Allen on his next movie after he visited the first couple on a June trip to Paris.

Bruni said that she didn’t know what the film was about or what she’d do in it, but as the AFP puts it, with some bite:

This announcement comes on the heels of the astounding news that a nude photograph of her, taken in 1993, failed to reach the reserve price of 6,000 to 9,000 Euros (about $9000) at auction and remains unsold.

It is unclear what effect appearing in a Woody Allen movie will have on the price of the photo. Naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson, also a New York Jew, have remained highly sought after even after starring in several of Allen’s pictures.

At time of writing Michelle Obama has expressed neither interest in modeling for Vanity Fair nor acting in a Woody Allen film.

Watch the video below for Carla Bruni (fully clothed) singing “Quelgu’un m’a dit” (Somebody Told Me).
