Lady Gaga Turned To Psychiatric Help During The Filming of House of Gucci: ‘I Was Always Patrizia’

“I don’t think that any actor should push themselves to that limit.”

Lady Gaga admits to pushing herself over the edge to outperform her role in House of Gucci.

In a podcast interview with Variety, Gaga confessed that she “had a psychiatric nurse with me toward the end of filming. I sort of felt like I had to. I felt that it was safer for me.”

The pop music icon famously stayed in character as Patrizia Reggiani, Gucci’s wife.

She added,“I was always Patrizia. I always spoke in my accent. And even if I was speaking about things that weren’t related to the movie – I wasn’t pretending that Maurizio (Gucci) was waiting for me downstairs – I was still living my life. I just lived it as her.”

“I don’t think that any actor should push themselves to that limit,” Gaga said. “And I ask myself all the time why I do that. I’ve done some pretty extreme art pieces throughout my career – the things I’ve put my body through, my mind,” continued Gaga.

Gaga also revealed, “I don’t know why I’m like that. I think that the best answer I could give you is I have a sort of romantic relationship with suffering for your art that I developed as a young girl, and it just sometimes goes too far. And when it does go too far, it can be hard to reel it in on your own.”
