Adam Driver and Lady Gaga are a force to be reckoned with. Driver, a Scorpio; Gaga, an Aries. Some might call them an explosive match, which seems fitting given their new project together: House of Gucci. The costars lead Ridley Scott’s upcoming murder drama about the killing of Guccio Gucci’s grandson Maurizio, played by Driver. Gaga provided a first look at the film on Instagram on March 9, where she and Driver posed for a snap in character, captioned: “Signore e Signora Gucci.”
Whew, there’s much to unpack in these set pictures. First, there’s a bespectacled Driver wearing the sh*t out of a chunky knit sweater à la Chris Evans in Knives Out. Then you have Gaga giving her best Ally Maine in Italy, complete with brunette hair and gold chains that would make Gen Z quake. Shooting continued in Milan on March 10, where Gaga was pictured seemingly doing something shady in character while Driver was simply minding his business in the same market. You know Gaga’s character means business with that feathered hair and fur coat. On March 11, the pair were seen sharing a few intimate moments in character, with Gaga and Driver enjoying a nice Italian pastry.
Their actions and outfits could be a nod to the tense storyline, where Gaga will be taking on the role of Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio’s ex-wife. Patrizia was convicted of plotting Maurizio’s assassination in 1995 after he left her for another woman. She gained notoriety as the “Black Widow” of Italy and served 18 years before being let out of jail in 2016. There are still plenty of unknowns left as the real-life story makes its way to the big screen, but we anticipate much will unfold before its anticipated Nov. 24 release date.
