Lady Gaga had a particular vision for her scenes with Salma Hayek in the upcoming film House of Gucci. The singer, who stars as Patrizia Reggiani in the Ridley Scott-directed movie, revealed during a Q&A session - the details of which are currently unknown - that she had proposed a sex scene between her and Hayek's character, TV psychic Giuseppina "Pina" Auriemma.
Although the scene did not ultimately make it into the final cut of the film, Gaga praised Scott for being open to the idea and for allowing them to explore the characters' relationship in that way. It is unclear if there are any other scenes that depict the relationship between the two characters in a more explicit way that may have been cut, but the film promises to be a dramatic hit.
The upcoming film House of Gucci promises to be a dramatic hit as it tells the true story of Patrizia Reggiani, portrayed by Lady Gaga, as she hires a hitman to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver. The film delves into the aftermath of the event and the way in which Reggiani leans on her friend Pina, portrayed by Salma Hayek, for support.
However, there is a side of the story that was not included in the final cut of the film. Gaga revealed during a Q&A session that there were scenes depicting a sexual relationship between her character and Hayek's character. While it is unclear if these scenes will be included in a director's cut or if they were cut for other reasons, Gaga praised the director for allowing them to explore the characters' relationship in that way.
Hayek responded to Gaga's comment with "You think she is kidding."
House of Gucci is based on the Sara Gay Forden book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed.
It also stars Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Reeve Carney and Jack Huston.
In an interview with Variety in May of last year, Hayek had revealed she shot scenes that never made it to the film.
"I think we had a lot of fun reliving scenes that are not even in the movie and [Gaga] is the ultimate professional, and I could not wait to get on that set," Hayek told Variety. "We really couldn't wait to get on the set and just do it and do it together and play off of each other."
