Lady Gaga revealed that she spoke in an Italian accent with her own mother Cynthia to stay in the character of Patrizia Regianni while filming for House Of Gucci.
The singer, 35, told Alison Hammond during a performance on Thursday’s This Morning that she took the part home because of her dedication.

Wow! Lady Gaga revealed she spoke in an Italian accent with her own mother Cynthia to stay in the character of Patrizia Regianni while filming for House Of Gucci
“And then I’d go to the set and I’d still be in character, so my life really became the movie. My memory of filming this movie feels like real life.’
She dropped her Italian accent and added, “I’ve called everyone in my life. I called my mother and I would talk to her in a minute.’
Despite winning an Oscar for her performance in 2016’s A Star Is Born, Gaga’s bid to determine the country’s pronunciation was recently panned by the film’s dialect coach.

Italian actress Francesca De Martini spoke to The Daily Beast about the Bad Romance singer’s transformation into Patrizia, who in 1995 hired a hit man to kill her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci.
Clearly unconvinced, Francesca, who auditioned for roles in the film before returning as a vocal coach, said of Gaga: “I feel bad saying this, but her accent isn’t exactly Italian, it sounds more Russian.”
Francesca also spoke about working with Salma Hayek, saying: “What happened was this: Salma shot one day and then asked for a dialogue coach. I think she heard the accent wasn’t right and she was worried – she wanted to do it right.”

Gaga has spoken extensively about her transformation into Patrizia and using the accent for nine months to maintain her character.
She previously said: “I started in the voice six months before we started filming and I stayed in it for the whole movie, which I’m sure was super annoying for Adam [Driver] For me, I thought it was harder to get in and out, so I stayed in character.”
The star then told British Vogue: ‘I lived like her’ [Reggiani] for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months. I never broke. I stayed with her.’
Gaga then revealed that she dyed her hair off screen to stay in character: “It was almost impossible for me to speak with the accent as a blonde. I had to dye my hair right away.”

The film is based on Sara Gay Forden’s novel, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.
Set in Italy, the story explores three decades of countless themes, including love, betrayal and revenge.
Significantly depicted over the course of the film is the aftermath of the 1995 murder of Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam), the Italian businessman and head of the fashion house Gucci, by his ex-wife Patrizia (played by Gaga).
Oh no! Clearly unconvinced, Francesca said of Gaga: ‘I feel bad saying this, but her accent isn’t exactly Italian, it sounds more Russian’
Jared Leto plays vice president of the luxury fashion house Paolo Gucci, cousin of Maurizio, while Al Pacino plays Aldo Gucci, the company’s president from 1953 to 1986.
The cold-blooded murder of fashion scion Maurizio in 1995 shocked the world – especially when his ex-wife Patrizia was found guilty of arranging the crime.
During the murder trial, which grounded Italy, Patrizia arrived every day wearing Gucci clothing and accessories from head to toe.
The court heard how she ordered her husband’s murder after he offered her $650,000 in a divorce settlement.
In 1998 she was initially sentenced to 29 years, on appeal this was reduced to 26 years. She served 18 – with her pet ferret Bambi part of the time as a companion – before being released in October 2014.
Known for her luxurious lifestyle, Patrizia once said ‘I’d rather cry in a Rolls than be happy on a bike’ and turned down the offer of day release while in prison because it would mean having to do ‘minor’ work. to do.
House of Gucci is slated for release on November 26.
