Not with Cheek to Cheek 2 round the corner.
The set pics are giving me Edwina Currie biopic.
Well also considering it’s not a love story and rather a murdered my husband kind of story...
Honestly Ridley’s work ethic (with decent quality control!) at 83 is both motivating and... makes me sick.
Not me thinking he was in his 60s at most
His wife being called JOANNE makes this even messier.
The headline when you open the article being “No, they are not dating”. What kind of messy clickbait.
First controversy of the era and the movie isn't even out. I'm confused...wasn't she calling her a genius and saying that she likes the fact that Gaga will be bringing her character to life on screen earlier this year?
Also "respect" ummm?
Is anyone else kind of...nervous about her playing this woman
She still claims to be innocent but Gaga most likely portray her as guilty on the murdering of her husband. Patrizia most likely don't want to be portrayed as the villain of the movie or a horrible person. I don't think a personal relationship would be helpful unless they tell the story as she sees it. Lets just not forget that she hired the Italian mafia to kill her man out of vanity.
It's just rich (well, ex-rich) white lady vanity!
She repeats she's honored Gaga is playing her and that the looks she's serving on set are on point. She's just bitter a huge international production led by a famous Hollywood director invaded the city she lives in to make a movie about her life and has ignored her entire existence. To add insult to injury, she says, journalists keep pestering her about the movie, so she's constantly reminded of the shunning.
All you need to know about Patrizia Reggiani is this: on the 14th year of her 26-year sentence, she was offered parole because of her exemplary behaviour as a convict but she refused to be released early from the San Vittore prison, which she calls Victor's Residence, on the grounds she would rather read books and water plants in jail than start to work for a living for the first time in her life. The first years of her detention, she was so desperate she tried to take her own life by using a bed sheet and was forced to sleep on the floor of her cell after being rescued because the prison wouldn't give her new bedding. But she became so good at the jail game she somehow convinced the warden to grant her exotic luxuries like a pet ferret. Her fellow inmates feared her, obeyed her and even imitated her style. She eventually decided to graciously accept the parole agreement she had previously declined to take better care of the after-affects of a brain cancer she had defeated. Her lawyer says prison couldn't change her, so she changed prison instead. Her first words as an employee and rehabilitated member of society were "and YOU should be my new bosses?"
She's... an interesting woman to say the least.
Is she not still wealthy? I read she still got the money paid out to her.
She keeps switching how she feels about this film, I can't keep up with her.
I kind of have to stan.
NOT a pet ferret. Asia found playing her.
That's another... interesting situation. Her mother, a nouvelle riche who educated her daughter with the only values of social climbing, money hoarding and rich-husband hunting, managed to become the sole administrator of Reggiani's money while she was in jail. Reggiani has melodramatically declared for years to be "nullatenente", destitute and with zero assets. And when the mother died, not long ago, the coup de théâtre: she had erased her out of the will and given the 120 properties the family owned in Milan all to charity. Reggiani was left only with the portion of inheritance she was entitled to by law, part of which went as compensation to Maurizio Gucci's widow and the innocent doorman shot by the hitman.
ALSO, Reggiani and her own daughters have been long engaged in a legal battle about the money Maurizio Gucci owed her pre-murder, something like 30 million euros. The daughters have been ordered by the judges to hand out their mother that little fortune but they refuse to comply and say "okay but our mom is a killer".
It's... an interesting family to say the least.
It's such a twisted, twisty tale and I agree it should be handled with care. Sure, there is morbid fascination with the black widow, especially as the story is all about fashion and wealth but she is still a cold blooded killer so she can't be glamorized too much.
So the Telephone continuation is happening after all!
Daily onset pics of Gaga’s House of Gucci are the only thing keeping me alive these days.
