Jared Leto says the ‘House Of Gucci’ role made him ‘sniff lines of Arrabbiata sauce’

Jared Leto went to some, um, dubious lengths to prepare for his role in “House of Gucci. ”

The Oscar winner plays the lead role as designer Paolo Gucci in the crime drama that explores the Gucci dynasty and premieres on Friday. IN an interview with iD magazine released this week, the actor explained how he made a “deep dive” into the character when filming began. And with his words, he went far beyond standard method-acting techniques.

“I snorted lines of arrabbiata sauce in the middle of this movie,” Leto said. “I had olive oil for blood. … If you took a biopsy of my skin, it would come back like parmesan cheese!”

Leto called the film his “love letter to Italy” and offered a bizarre anatomical metaphor to explain how much he “enjoyed and embraced” playing Paolo, which required him to undergo a physical transformation in the form of prostheses and makeup.

“I climbed into the creative cave and came out through the intestines and intestines into the esophagus of the only Paolo Gucci.” he said to iD. “Bringing Paolo to life was like feeding a bowling ball out of my sphincter. I keep saying that my ass was shaking like two little chicken bones on that set. ”

Leto is not the only “House of Gucci” star to have announced their commitment to the project in recent weeks.

Speaking to British Vogue for the December issue, Lady Gaga said she “talked to one [Italian] accent for nine months “outside the camera in preparation for her role as Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of plotting the assassination of her ex-husband, fashion impresario Maurizio Gucci in 1995, played by Adam Driver in the film.

“I was either in my hotel room, living and talking like Reggiani, or I was on the set, living and talking like her,” she recalled. “I remember one day I went to Italy with a hat on to go for a walk. I had not gone for a walk in about two months and I panicked … I thought I was on a movie set. “

Although Lady Gaga has been name-dropped as a potential pricing season challenger for her portrayal of Reggiani, Leto’s performance has generally divided critics.

“It’s either the best or the worst performance Leto has ever given, possibly both, but no matter what, it will not soon be forgotten.” The Wraps Alonso Duralde wrote. Colliders Matt Goldberg felt the same way and remarked: “Something Leto seems to misunderstand by acting is that it is not a competitive sport.”

Still, these reviews are tame compared to Patrizia Guccis, Maurizio’s second cousin. When asked the Associated Press her about pictures of Leto that had been taken on the Italian set of “House of Gucci,” she said, “Terrible, awful. I still feel offended.”
