Lady Gaga portrayed a fictional version of Patricia Gucci in House of Gucci, but the singer believes Gucci may have sent her a real-life message. In the form of flies, of course.
Gaga told W magazine in an article published on Tuesday that she “began to believe” that the bloodthirsty widow Maurizio Gucci sent insects to stalk the actor during the filming of Ridley Scott’s film.
“On the last day of filming, I was on the balcony of my apartment in Rome and listened to Dean Martin singing ‘Mambo Italiano’ with a cigarette hanging from my mouth,” Gaga told the magazine. In keeping with her one and a half year filming method, the singer said she was “Patricia” at the time.
“But I knew that I had to say goodbye to her: large flocks of flies pursued me everywhere, and I really began to believe that she had sent them,” said the artist of Chromatika. – I was ready to let her go.
Patricia, who went to jail for hiring a hitman to kill her. ex-husband, has not yet commented on flies.
But she had something to say about Gaga’s portrayal, and she had previously expressed her disappointment that the Star Is Born actor hadn’t contacted her prior to filming.
Although Gaga told British Vogue that refusing to meet with Patricia Gucci was part of her image.
“I felt that I could really do justice to this story if I approached it from the perspective of a curious woman interested in having a journalistic spirit so that I could read between the lines what was happening in the scenes of the film.” said the singer in an article published in November. “That means no one was going to tell me who Patricia Gucci was.”
“Even Patricia Gucci,” she explained.
While British Vogue suggested that Patricia Gucci was apparently happy to be played by such a celebrity, the Gucci family said watching the film was “extremely painful.”
“While the work claims to tell the family’s ‘true story’, the fears raised by the trailers and interviews so far published are confirmed: the film contains a narrative that is far from reality,” the family said via a Statement released in November. by the Italian news agency ASNA and later translated by Variety.
“This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the heritage on which the brand is built today,” they added.
