Allen told Italian daily Corriere della Sera in the interview published Saturday that working with Bruni-Sarkozy was smooth and pleasant. The ex-supermodel was on set in July for her appearance in Allen’s romantic comedy, which stars Owen Wilson and Marion Cotillard.
Corriere said Allen made the comments in a phone interview from Paris.
Allen says Bruni-Sarkozy plays a guide at the Rodin Museum and that she was so good he’s going to keep all her scenes in, according to the newspaper. He said French President Nicolas Sarkozy came to the set one evening because he was curious to see his wife act.
