The Gucci family is not happy with Ridley Scott’s Gucci House.
Patricia Gucci, who is Gucio Gucci’s great-grandson, told the Associated Press that she was worried that the film “went beyond the title, grabbing the real crime story and prizes in the personal lives of Gucci Gucci’s heirs.”
“We are really disappointed,” Gucci told the AP on Wednesday. “I am speaking on behalf of the family. They steal the identity of a family in order to earn, to increase the income of the Hollywood system … Our family has an identity, confidentiality. We can talk about anything. But there is a limit that cannot be crossed. “
The House of Gucci follows the actual murder of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver), a former head of the Gucci fashion house, who was shot dead in 1
Patricia said she contacted the director’s wife, Janina Fazio, for clarification on the “scope of the film”, but received no response. Earlier, Fazio met with some members of the Gucci family in the early 2000s to discuss another potential project that would revolve around Patricia Gucci’s father, Paolo, and his grandfather, Aldo, turning the Gucci brand into a global luxury player. .
Stressing the family’s concern that the production team had not sought cooperation, Patricia said the Gucci family would decide what their next course of action would be after watching the finished film. The family is also worried that Scott’s film will convey the inaccuracies they see in Gucci’s House: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Shine and Greed. In addition, they are dissatisfied with many of the casting opportunities such as Al Pacino and Jared Leto.
“My grandfather was a very handsome man, like all Guccis, and very tall, blue-eyed and very elegant,” said Patrizia Gucci. “It’s played by Al Pacino, who is no longer very tall, and this photo shows him as fat, short, with sideburns, really ugly. It’s a shame because he doesn’t look like him at all, “said Patricia Gucci.
Regarding Paolo Gucci’s image of Jared Leto, she said: “Terrible, terrible. I still feel offended. “
In January, Gucci confirmed to Novella that she liked that Gaga would play her in Gucci’s House, calling the actor and musician a genius. On Sunday, Gucci contacted the Italian news network Ansa and said it was “wrong” that Gaga did not address her, saying that “every good actor must first get to know the person he has to play. ”
“I’m annoyed that Lady Gaga is portraying me in the new Ridley Scott movie without even having the kindness or common sense to come and meet me,” she said. “It has nothing to do with money, because I will not take a penny from the film. It’s about common sense and respect. “
