Allen Eyes Bruni As New Muse

Jun 18, 2009 | 6:34am EDT

Woody Allen is eyeing his next muse -- and he thinks France's First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy would be the ideal candidate.

The Annie Hall director was promoting his new movie Whatever Works in Paris on Thursday when French reporters quizzed him on who he would love to work with.

And Allen seems to have set his sights high -- he is desperate to get French President Nicolas Sarkozy's wife in front of the camera.

He told journalists, "Without question, Carla Bruni! I'm sure she would be wonderful. She has charisma, and she performs, so she's not a stranger to an audience, and I would cast her in many different ways.

"I don't have a story at the moment, but you know, maybe even I'll ask her, if she's interested."
