After casting France's first lady Carla Bruni in his film Midnight in Paris, director Woody Allen says that he would like to cast Barack Obama's wife Michelle in one of his movies.

The 75-year-old veteran actor-turned-director revealed his idea during an interview, reported Ace Showbiz.

"If I was in a room with Michelle Obama, and I thought she was right for a part, I wouldn't hesitate to ask her," the three-time winner of Academy award said.

Allen previously tapped Bruni to play a museum tour guide in Midnight in Paris, which also stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard.

Allen explained that he decided to cast the French first lady on a whim while having dinner with her and her husband, French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
