Of the initial reactions that have emerged on the film, which is released worldwide on November 26, Gaga has emerged as the film’s main takeaway.
Liv Marks, Senior Entertainment Reporter at Bauer, added: “I saw House Of Gucci last week and it’s deliciously wild. Lady Gaga is a magnetic force. Just when you think she’s peaked, she goes and blows your mind all over again.”
However, Gaga has said that shooting the film was so exhausting it made her vomit.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga said during filming she would wake up at 3am to begin her physical transformation into the role – including a prosthetic bald cap and wigs – and would often vomit after she awoke from some mixture of “anxiety, fatigue, trauma, exhaustion, commitment and love.”
She added: “You wake up, you throw up, you go to set, throw up again.”
The transformation wasn’t just physical, with Gaga claiming that she “spoke with an accent for nine months” during the filming.
“I lived as her [Reggiani] for a year and a half,” she explained in an interview with Vogue. “And I spoke with an [Italian] accent for nine months of that.”
