House of Gucci – How Lady Gaga took personal trauma in the role of film – NEWS WORLD UPDATE

Lady Gaga said she relied on her experience of being abused as a teenager when she shot House of Gucci.

The new film tells the story of love, betrayal and, finally, the crime of the famous Italian fashion family.

The singer and actress play Patrizia Reggiani, who has served 18 years in prison for hiring an assassin to kill her ex-husband and head of the record company Maurizio Gucci.

“I used all these memories, all these traumas, all these moments in my life,” Lady Gaga told BBC News.

This summer, the star revealed that she suffered a fall as a result of a sexual assault that left her pregnant more than 15 years ago.

She said she believed Reggiani’s murder was the act of a woman who was “pushed over the edge.”

Asked how her own personal experiences helped her inform her character, she told BBC entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba: “The poison of experiencing the world of a man all the time as a woman being in the music industry, I would say.

“Less agitation as part of her character, but more that I was assaulted when I was 19 by a music producer, feeling endlessly controlled by men as I continued my career and tried to find my own voice and to be in my own power – not power, but empowerment, as a woman.

“I took from every trigger point I could find and allowed myself to experience – I could cry talking about it – the way to survive all the time.

“So it was very painful on set because we were constantly working using the memory of the senses.”

She added: “I was very open about post-traumatic stress disorder and I have PTSD complex. So it is not a single PTSD incident, but several incidents.

“I used them all at different times in different moments of the script.”

“An exorcism”

Her “amazing” director Ridley Scott regularly checked her mental health because she could see that she was being “traumatized” willingly with her performance, she said.

“Reliving your trauma for a character may not be the healthiest thing,” she admitted. “But I am a romantic. I have a love with the script, a love with my character, a love with the cast.

“I think it was in a therapeutic way, in a way that … what he called it was an exorcism. I relived all this to interpret it, to count.”

The film is based on the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed by Sara Gay Forden.

He also plays Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci, as well as Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek and Al Pacino.

After gaining fame with hit songs such as Bad Romance and Poker Face, Lady Gaga was nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars and Bafta for her last major film role, alongside Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born .

‘Black Widow’
In an interview earlier this year, Reggiani himself gave it to Gaga – who also channeled her own Italian ascendant proud of her role -, describing her as a genius. However, she later said she was “annoyed” that the actress had not contacted her to meet her out of “respect”.

The producers later said they did not want the couple to meet because they were “aware that they do not want to support or support the heinous crime.”

Lady Gaga told the BBC that she believed Reggiani had hired an assassin because she was “too hurt and pushed over the edge” and “there is simply no other answer to why she killed her husband”.

The actress said: “What I found very fascinating about her was that everyone said she was a gold digger, a black widow looking for gold.

“What I felt about her was that she was trying to move forward in life, she was trying to count, she was trying to do something of herself.

“So, playing it, I bled humanity into this character in every cell of my being. How do you feel waking up every day and feeling less than everything around you?

“It’s never as bright as Gucci’s, it never fits, it’s always a little embarrassing. And once that embarrassment starts to add up, that mirror turns on it and sees it, it starts to unravel.”
