London: French First Lady Carla Bruni has got just one scene in Woody Allen`s new film.

The director revealed at the Cannes Film Festival that Bruni had now been offered the role of a glamorous museum curator in the film – appearing on screen for just a few minutes, reports the Telegraph.

France`s leading celebrity website Pure People said: "Mr Allen has let it be known that Carla will have a very minor role."

The news comes weeks after Bruni lost the part of leading lady to French Oscar winner Marion Cotillard.
