London, Apr 16 : France's First Lady Carla Bruni has a secret passion - the works of great William Shakespeare.
In a recent interview, the former supermodel told British Airways magazine High Life is planning a return visit in search of the Bard of Avon.
"I'm keen to visit Stratford because I have such a love of Shakespeare," the Telegraph quoted her, as telling the magazine.
"My friend Marianne Faithfull - or 'my dear professor', as I like to call her - insists that I read a couple of his sonnets every day," she added.
The 40-year-old beauty counts folk singing among her many accomplishments and her latest album, No Promises, sets the poems of WB Yeats, WH Auden and Emily.
