Woody AllenAfter rumors swirled last July that Carla Bruni-Sarkozy took 32 takes to shoot a single scene, Woody Allen has swooped in to defend the beautiful actress-French First Lady in distress.

"She was no problem at all," Allen declared at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, the AP reports. "I was delighted with her."

Allen was all defense at TIFF in an interview when asked about Bruni-Sarkozy when reports surfaced about her on-set troubles for the shooting of Allen's latest 'Midnight in Paris,' including a mentioning that Allen had to replace her at the last minute with another actress.
