Woody Allen Shoots Down Carla Bruni Rumors
By PopEater Staff Posted Sep 13th 2010 11:04AM
"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.
Allen reiterated that the number of takes was greatly exaggerated, saying that he usually does 10 or so takes for all his actors including big names like Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard and Rachel McAdams.
The wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy was no different.
"This is a hundred percent untrue," Allen said in the interview. "She's in the picture. Everything she shot is in the picture. I love her. She's great. It's not a big part, but it's a respectable part."
Allen did say he did make a last minute hire for another actress, but not for Bruni-Sarkozy's role.
"I did hire another actress late in the picture for another part, for a totally different role," Allen adamantly stated. "They're both in the picture."
Bruni-Sarkozy's role is a tour guide a the Rodin Museum, and the film is set to debut next year.
