PARIS - French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy says her husband was not upset when he learned of all the nude photos she did during her modeling days.
Bruni-Sarkozy told Vanity Fair magazine that she gathered up her past nude shots to show President Nicolas Sarkozy early in their relationship, telling him: "You must know that this is going to come out.
"He said, 'Oh, I like this one! Can I have a print of it?'" Bruni-Sarkozy was quoted as telling the magazine, which released an advance copy of the interview on Monday.
The 40-year-old model-turned-singer married Sarkozy, 53, in February after a whirlwind romance. Her new album, "Comme si de rien n'etait" (As if nothing had happened)," appeared in record stores this month.
Vanity Fair's September edition, with Bruni-Sarkozy photographs by Annie Leibovitz and an interview by special correspondent Maureen Orth, widow of late NBC newsman Tim Russert, hits newsstands Friday.
