Carla Bruni not fired from Woody Allen film
Rep denies reports she was replaced by Lea Seydoux
French first lady Carla Bruni won't be replaced on Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" with look-alike actress Lea Seydoux.
A rep for Seydoux tells France's Voici magazine that she was just added to the cast.
Seydoux's role has not yet been made clear. The actress had a small role in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," and a much larger part in "Robin Hood."
The UK Daily Mail reported Thursday that Seydoux, who at 25 is nearly two decades younger than Bruni, 42, reshot all of Bruni's scenes.
"The American director has taken the precaution of filming the First Lady's scenes with someone else," a source told Paris website Bakchich.info.
A rep for "Midnight in Paris" told the Daily Mail that the film will premiere in May at Cannes -- and the director won’t confirm who will star in the film until then.
