Washington: Hollywood actor Salma Hayek recently spoke about her experience working with co-star Lady Gaga on the upcoming biographical crime film ‘House of Gucci’. In the latest cover story for Variety, Hayek spoke about working with the singer. “We were talking on the phone and she was already Patrizia. Her accent was perfect,” Hayek said of getting to know Gaga before filming took place in Italy.
In the movie, the ‘Bad Romance’ singer portrays Patrizia Reggiani, the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was the head of the Gucci fashion house at the time before Patrizia hired a hitman to murder him in 1995. Talking about her on-set experience, Hayek said, “I think we had a lot of fun reliving scenes that are not even in the movie and she is the ultimate professional, and I could not wait to get on that set. We really couldn’t wait to get on the set and just do it and do it together and play off of each other.”
Hayek, who portrays Pina Auriemma, a close confidante of Patrizia, told Variety that Gaga is incredibly talented, incredibly smart. She said, “And she has on top of all that, extra abilities that not every brilliant actor has, which is she’s good with the accent,” adding, “Of course, she has an amazing ear. She is extraordinary improvising, and not everybody has that. She really embodies the character. Her level of commitment – I’ve only seen maybe once or twice somebody commit to a character like she does. And she’s also a great team player.”
Gaga wrapped filming on ‘House of Gucci’ earlier this month, sharing a photo of herself pounding fists with director Ridley Scott on Instagram. In the caption, she wrote “That’s a wrap, Rid,” Gaga wrote alongside the post, adding the hashtag, “#HouseOfGucci (sic).”
