Adam Driver says he and co-star Lady Gaga improvised one of the wildest sex scenes in director Ridley Scott’s upcoming crime novel, House of Gucci.
Two of the stars in Ridley Scott’s upcoming House of Gucci, Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, improvised their sex scene in the early stages of the film. Scott’s true-crime drama has built considerable momentum ever since the early days of its production, and with recent premieres in London and now New York, the film has managed to gain early recognition. A significant portion of this hype comes from Lady Gaga’s performance as Patrizia Reggiani, the former wife of Gucci fashion house manager Maurizio Gucci (driver).
In recent years, it could be argued that Scott, the filmmaker who brought the world Alien and the many Oscar-winning ones Gladiator, has delved deeper into depictions of the Italian criminal world. House of Gucci marks his second exploration of a violent but fascinating side in the history of the European nation, with 2017’s All money in the world tells the true story of oil tycoon John Paul Getty and the abduction of his 16-year-old grandson in Rome in 1973. As for House of Gucci, but the film tells the story of the marriage between Gucci and Reggiani, the subsequent dissolution of that relationship and the murder of Gucci after Reggiani hired a hired killer to kill him.
Just as the devilish events leading up to Gucci’s assassination were, House of Gucci does not simply revel in the dark side of the life of the doomed couple. Within the tragic narrative is also a love story that takes place in the early days of Gucci and Reggiani’s relationship. The film early shows a sex scene, as Driver recently recounted THAT ONE was improvised. Driver insisted that he and Gaga were very comfortable with each other when the scene was filmed, and talked about shooting the scene and said:
“We blocked it like we would for any fight or any scene, then we just ran it once or twice and that was it! We felt it, so to speak! Everything I say sounds like a double standard, but, we flew it! I would also say that at that time we had been busy for a month, so we felt very comfortable going where we were going. “
While most still have a little over a week left before the film hits theaters, they are lucky enough to have seen a preview of House of Gucci has praised Gaga’s achievement. The film has already been marked as a candidate for Oscar recognition. Part of this praise could be attributed to the comfort among his cast, which Driver talked about, which is particularly impressive considering that the aforementioned sex scene has already gained a reputation for being quite wild.
Another point worth considering in this – and something that could help Gaga’s Oscar chances, is that even though she’s performed professionally before, her feature film experience is somewhat limited, especially compared to Drivers. Having improvised a sex scene with one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars is certainly no small feat. What’s more, the comfort that Driver talked about suggests a filmcast that possessed the confidence to take things in any necessary direction. This is definitely one of House of Guccis strengths, and within the coming weeks and months it will be interesting to see where these strengths take the film.
