Lady Gaga revealed in an interview that she and Salma Hayek had an intimate scene in House of Gucci but ended up on the cutting-room floor.
In this Singapore news, we will reveal more details about the unused footage.
An intimate scene that were cut
The acclaimed singer and actress, stated that there is a surprising scene in this film that wasn’t included in the final cut. She is also widely expected to win an Oscar this year for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in the Hollywood drama film that is inspired by the real-life assasination of Maurizio Gucci.
According to Gaga, Patrizia—who was jailed for hiring a gunman to murder her ex-husband Maurizio, who was portrayed by Adam Driver in the movie—established a sexual relationship with her clairvoyant friend Giuseppina Auriemma in a footage that were cut.
In an interview, the A Star is Born actress shared that “There is another side of this movie that was not shown where me and Pina developed an intimate relationship.”
“This is an indicator of how genius our director Ridley Scott is, because he permits us to do whatever we want. What I recalled is that me and Salma were on set, and then Ridley said “So after Maurizio dies, maybe it gets hot? And she goes, “What are you talking about?” she added.
As a response, 55-year-old Salma said, “I can assure you that she was not kidding. Maybe they will include the scene in the director’s cut of the film. Who knows?”
A magical farewell
Concurrently, Gaga said that she started to believe that Patrizia had sent a whole slew of flies to the House of Gucci set.
The Bad Romance singer claimed that she was visited by the insects while she was saying goodbye to the character that she played on the final day of filming.
She stated “On the final day of filming the movie, I was standing in the balcony of my flat in Rome, while I was listening to Mambo Italiano being sung by Dean Martin, and I remember I had a cigarette in my mouth and I was Patrizia.”
“However, I knew that I had to bid farewell to her. A whole slew of flies encircled me, and I began to think that they were sent by Patrizia. I am now ready to set her free.”
The reaction of the heirs to the film
Recently, the heirs of Aldo Gucci said that the film was inaccurate and they were sad that the film portrayed their relatives differently from real life.
In their official statement, they said “ We were concerned about the Ridley Scott film from the start. The producers of the movie did not manage to consult us about the description of Aldo Gucci, the head of the company for 30 years. Also, the film depicted the members of the family of Gucci as criminals, oblivious and indifferent to the rest of the world.”
“There was also a manner and personality of the characters in the popular events in the film that was different from what happened in real life. Also, it was really painful for us to see the film and I was deeply sad for days after I watched it because it was a clear disrespect to the legacy on which the global brand was established now.”
The House of Gucci is currently dominating the nominations for the Hollywood’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Among the praises to the film is the ensemble of talented actors making up the cast and the stellar performances of Jared Leto and Lady Gaga.
The drama film definitely deserves a lot of nomination to the Academy Awards 2022 that is set to air in March.
