Move over Scarlett JohanssonWoody Allen has a new muse: France's first lady, the model-turned-singer Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

The brunette beauty will appear in Woody's next film in a role that is, as yet, undefined, reports Bloomberg.

“He offered me a role in his next movie,” Carla told a French TV show yesterday.

“I don’t know for what character, but I said yes. I’m not an actress at all,” says the wife of France's president Nicolas Sarkozy. “Maybe I will be terrible. But, in my life, I cannot let such a chance go.”

"She livens the set up. The minute she walks on the set, the amperage goes up 200 points... Whenever there's a part she could play, she would probably always be my first choice."
