Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Pats Husband's Derrière During Interview (VIDEO)

The Sarkozys are no strangers to public displays of affection, and now it's been caught on tape.

When France's first lady invited five readers of the women's magazine Femme Actuelle to Elysee Palace, the president dropped in for a surprise visit. The couple engaged in what could only be called light petting, as Bruni stroked her husband's backside, hands, lapel, and face. She also called him "chou-chou" (cabbage, a French term of endearment) .
