ROME (Reuters) - A report Vivendi <VIV.PA> is thinking of calling a shareholder meeting at Telecom Italia <TLIT.MI> to appoint four more board members are off the mark, the French media group's CEO said.

"What I read is not a reality of the moment," Arnaud de Puyfontaine said on Friday on the sidelines of a conference.

Vivendi is Telecom Italia's leading shareholder.

Last May activist fund Elliott wrestled board control from the media giant after a two-month campaign to shake up the way the French group had been running the former telecoms monopoly.
