“Patrizia Reggiani I let go of her faster.”

Whereas House of Gucci begins its tenth week of distribution in France, its main performer Lady Gaga went head-to-head with Jake Gyllenhaal to variety. Asked about her way of getting into the characters she has embodied during her career, such as The Countess in American Horror Story or even Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci, the artist with many hats revealed that he generally finds it difficult to part with his roles. Ally’s in A Star is Born stuck with him for several years, while that of Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci was dropped very quickly, for obvious reasons.

Referring to her singing career before her acting career, Gaga explains that she always wanted to act in the cinema. “I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer. And I studied for a very long time. (…) I would even say that for me, playing a character is like living a long song.” A song that sticks to the artist’s skin, which also answers Gyllenhaal’s question “Is that why you stay in your characters all day?” : “Yes. A long song that lasts for months. For A Star is Born, it’s been years for me. And for Patrizia, I let go of her faster because she was a killer and there were things in the transformation that, psychologically, were super difficult for me. When I watch the film, I feel like I’m watching a montage of my life. I don’t feel like I’m watching a movie.”

Chosen to play the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, Lady Gaga has already mentioned on many occasions the work provided to manage to put herself in the shoes of the sponsor of the murder of Gucci. Italian accent all day long, watching interviews and reading biographies: Gaga became Patrizia, while using her own experience to bring her to life. “I wanted to inject a multi-faceted, fractured and shattered reality into her. When I think of her as a character, I think I took little pieces of glass from tons of different women and encapsulated them in a character that I believe is really her, but I think madness is subjective.”

Released November 24, House of Gucci is Ridley Scott’s new feature film, after The Last Duel. Worn by Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto and Al Pacino, it takes up the tumultuous history of the Gucci House and family in the 1980s. Its trailer:
