#Fluff Up

# fluff-up - Thursday 29 July, 2010

SHE’S CERTAINLY HOT, but she’s not quite so hot when it comes to acting.

Carla Bruni was filming Woody Allen’s latest flick – Midnight in Paris yesterday and although the French chanteuse didn’t have any lines, she managed to fluff up her scene, not once but 35 times.

Bruni’s role in the movie was confined to her entering a grocery store and leaving with a baguette – simple? Apparently not.

A bystander told The Daily Mail: “She seemed to be struggling to avoid looking directly into the camera, which didn’t impress Woody,’ said an onlooker in Paris. ‘The baguette scene could not have been simpler, but she wanted to make it a big one. That’s why she had to keep shooting it over and over again.

‘Woody was prompting Carla constantly, although he was very careful to show a lot of respect, especially as she was surrounded by security guards.’

Carla’s husband French President Nicolas Sarkozy looked on, as did co-star Owen Wilson.

Miss Bruni, who plays a museum curator in the Allen movie, had a small role in the 1994 film Pret-a-Porter and the 1998 film Paparazzi, each time playing herself.
