ET’s Lauren Zima talked to the House of Gucci cast about how one of the film’s most memorable lines came to be.
“That was something Jared [Leto] and I came up with together,” Said Lady Gaga, who plays the role of Patrizia Reggiani, who went to prison for hiring a hitman to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver in the movie).
“Father, son and house of Gucci? Well, it was the first time, and then we kept it.” Gaga revealed. “It was not in the script,” claimed Jared Leto, who plays Gucci fashion designer Paolo Gucci.
So the brilliant line was totally improvised by Gaga!
“These things came to us, I think they came from a real place of spontaneity on set, where you can do as much work as possible before, and then when you get there, you just throw it out, and you just talk to each other,” added the singer.
The cast got deep into character for the film, so much so that they almost forgot their real-lives. Adam Driver claimed he realized he wasn’t actually the Italian fashion-house head he plays in the film just at the end of the shootings.
“I kept a pair of Gucci shoes, but I always found this, where you are playing a character for three or four months, I start feeling like, ‘This is who I am,’ and then you take the clothes home, and you try to wear them in life and I’m like, ‘I am not this person at all,'” he told.
