Adam Driver Couldn’t Wait To Stop Playing A Gucci
While Lady Gaga has gone on about how she’s had trouble shaking off the character of Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci, Adam Driver couldn’t wait to get out of his Maurizio Gucci cosplay. And in W Magazine’s Best Performances issue, Gaga continues to burp up all the ways she got into the mind of Patrizia while Adam talks about how he was so over playing the character and didn’t go to the movie’s wrap party because when he’s done, he’s done.
Adam was ready to drop the Gucci shit way sooner than Gaga and tells W that he shed the character right after filming was done. He’s like anyone who works retail, clock out and go the fuck home.
“I went to Juilliard, and they train you to be a repertory theater actor—Chekhov in the morning, Arthur Miller at night. I like that discipline. In some ways, House of Gucci was the most difficult. I do not live in the same world as Maurizio Gucci. The way he picks up things that are valuable and discards them, the way he is the most elegant man—those qualities were interesting to think about. But after 14 hours a day of being a Gucci, I was ready for it to be over. In general, I leave jobs immediately. I haven’t been to a wrap party since Girls. I just want to get the character out of my system and go home.”
Well, this explains why he stormed off from that interview where Adam was shown a clip of his old work; he had already got the character so far out of his system that it repulsed him!
We already heard from Lady Gaga on how she believes Patrizia sent a “swarm of flies” after her on the last day of filming HoG. There’s more to it since Gaga doesn’t do anything halfway, via Billboard:
“On the last day of filming, I was on the balcony of my apartment in Rome, and I was blasting Dean Martin singing Mambo Italiano, and I had a cigarette hanging out of my mouth. I was Patrizia,” the superstar dished to W for the magazine’s Best Performances issue. “But I knew I had to say goodbye to her: Large swarms of flies kept following me around, and I truly began to believe that she had sent them. I was ready to let her go.”
Mambo Italiano, really? Laying it on a little thick there, Gaga.
Well, if Patrizia really send a swarm of flies to attack Gaga, then Gaga really got off lucky. I mean, we all know what batshit Patrizia sent her ex-husband’s way…
