Highlight Story

Barely six months after singing of her 30 lovers in her new album, France's First Lady Carla Bruni has announced that she is "no longer a man-eater".

Yes, the chanteuse wife of flamboyant French President said now that she was married to Nicolas Sarkozy, she'd given up her man-eating ways of old following that included a string of boyfriends from Sir Mick Jagger to Donald Trump.

"I can no longer seduce because I love my husband. I don't want to hurt him. I am no longer a man-eater. We are newly weds. We don't say much, we kiss," 'The Daily Telegraph' newspaper quoted Bruni as telling the Brazilian edition of the 'Marie-Claire' magazine.

Bruni, who has turned 41, is currently in Rio de Janeiro accompanying her husband who has gone to Brazil for sealing an eight-billion-pound arms deal with his counterpart, President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

In fact, Bruni's announcement came a week after she claimed that it took her and her lover, the French President, just 48 hours to enter into wedlock, which had left her barely enough time to find a dress for herself.

The former Italian supermodel had also acknowledged that she toned down her naturally playful personality because of the criticism she drew when she first started dating the flamboyant President, which finally culminated in marriage in February this year.

"There was a brief period when I was trying to be serious so that people would trust me and so they would not worry, so they wouldn't say: 'My God, what is the world coming to?'" she told in an interview to the 'French TV'.
