First ladies on the big screen
Mon dieu! Woody Allen has cast French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in his new movie - which starts shooting in Paris this summer, according to a report by Reuters. She will star alongside Marion Cotillard, Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams.
This could be just the start of a global trend for leaders' wives (or husbands) to be signed up to the silver screen. Perhaps someone from Central Casting is running their eye over our own three potential "first ladies" and mentally matching them up with directing talent? Miriam and Pedro Almodovar, SamCam and Sam Mendes, Sarah and Ken Loach...?
