Later this month, the long-awaited Ridley Scott film ‘House of Gucci’ will premiere.
Singer Lady Gaga plays the role of Italian Patrizia Reggiani, who is famous and infamous for hiring a hitman to murder her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, in 1995.
Although the 35-year-old pop star is usually hailed for pretty much everything she produces, not everyone is looking forward to her performance in the upcoming film.
Since the film’s trailer came out earlier this year, the American singer and actress has received a lot of criticism for her Italian accent.
And now no one but the dialect expert who was associated with the film is following suit. It writes the Daily Beast.
The American media has spoken to the woman named Francesca De Martini, who admits that Lady Gaga did not exactly manage to cope with the accent to ug with cross and snake.
“I’m sorry to say that, but her accent does not sound exactly Italian,” the expert told the American media, continuing:
“She sounds more like a Russian.”
Dialect expert Francesca De Martini even auditioned for several of the roles for the upcoming film, but she was rejected for all of them.
However, she was later contacted and asked to help Lady Gaga’s co-star, Salma Hayek, because the actress herself was worried about whether she hit the accent right.
When Francesca De Martini worked with Salma Hayek, she also listened to Lady Gaga, who she does not think did very well.
Lady Gaga has otherwise immediately tried to do her part to portray Italian Patrizia Reggiani as well as possible.
“I lived like her for a year and a half and spoke with that accent for nine of the months – also behind the camera,” she told Vogue earlier this month.
Here, the singer also told that she even dyed her hair to hit the accent right.
‘It was almost impossible for me to talk to that accent while I was blonde. I had to dye my hair right away. “
‘House of Gucci’ premieres November 24.
