About Carla Bruni:
Carla Bruni is an Italian-French singer-songwriter and former model. She is married to former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
When I met Eric Clapton, I was a very young girl. I was 20 years old. And we were linked for a very short time, and then we became friends. And then we lost touch, which I'm really sorry about.
Marriage is another trap. If you are someone who likes independence, it's another stamp against that. And you have to swear to fidelity.
I thought marriage was something very quiet and very regular and very bourgeois.
I like peace and solitude and silence.
I am cursed with computers; something always goes wrong.
My dream life is just to go back to my job full-time. And be with my family. You know, regular dreams, common dreams that everyone has.
I'm not at all an active feminist. On the contrary, I'm a bourgeois. I love family life, I love doing the same thing every day.
In reality, I don't see myself as a man hunter. In fact, when it comes to love, I am rarely the one to make the first move.
My mother was a classical pianist and my stepfather was an industrialist who was passionate about composing contemporary music.
I care about writing music and playing my music.
I love English rock music the best and have always been fascinated by The Clash, especially Joe Strummer, their singer.
I hoped that, you know, France wouldn't mind about, you know, the wife of their president to having a job.
I think it would be shocking for me to pretend not to have any past. And also, it would be a lie.
I'm not really a femme fatale.
I only judge people in one way. I like them or I don't. But I don't have preconceived ideas.
It would never occur to me to judge anyone.
It's always astounded me to have succeeded at having kids. It's crazy!
I find that talking about myself is often the most boring thing in the world. Sixty per cent of interviews I find mechanical.
I've ended up becoming my mother in some respects, despite my eight years of analysis!
I must represent France, and I want to be elegant, and I want the French people to be proud of me, you know.
