Lady Gaga on the ‘psychological difficulty’ she struggled with during House of Gucci


Hollywood actress and singer Lady Gaga recently opened up about her highly anticipated film House of Gucci. While talking to British Vogue she opened about her transition into the character of Patrizia Reggiani. The Oscar- and Grammy-winning superstar revealed that she suffered “some psychological difficulty” while working on the film.

“It is three years since I started working on it and I will be fully honest and transparent: I lived as her (Reggiani) for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months of that. Off camera, I never broke. I stayed with her. It was nearly impossible for me to speak in the accent as a blonde. I instantly had to dye my hair, and I started to live in a way whereby anything that I looked at, anything that I touched, I started to take notice of where and when I could see money,” Gaga was quoted saying.

When asked how her role affected her mental health, she said “I had some psychological difficulty at one point towards the end of filming. I was either in my hotel room, living and speaking as Reggiani, or I was on set, living and speaking as her. I remember I went out into Italy one day with a hat on to take a walk. I hadn’t taken a walk in about two months and I panicked. I thought I was on a movie set.”

“It was the experience of a lifetime making this film because every minute of every day I thought of my ancestors in Italy and what they had to do so that I could have a better life. I just wanted to make them proud, which is why I made the decision to make the performance about a real woman and not about the idea of a bad woman,” Gaga concluded.
