Deneuve Criticises Bruni-sarkozy For Meddling In Iranian Case

French actress CATHERINE DENEUVE has taken aim at her country's First Lady, CARLA BRUNI-SARKOZY, for speaking out in defence of an Iranian woman facing a death sentence - branding her appeal counterproductive.
The French president’s wife signed an open letter in support of Sakineh Ashtiani, a mum-of-two who was due to be stoned to death over alleged adultery.
Her support for Ashtiani infuriated editors of leading Iranian newspaper, Kayhan, who branded Bruni-Sarkozy a "prostitute" who "deserves to die".
And Belle de Jour star Deneuve insists the former model should not have intervened, given reports of her previous relationships with high-profile men with long-term partners.
Deneuve says, "When you are a famous person you need to be more cautious when you lend your support to causes - with her past, she should have been more careful. It can be a double-edged sword. The other side just took the ball on the bounce. Their hint at her private life was as if to say, 'Mind your own business.'"
