Gucci House has a bit of everything: lavish luxury, murder, jealousy, scandal. What doesn’t he have? Lady Gaga and Salma Hayek are getting along, but that’s not to say Gaga hasn’t tried to get the two to connect onscreen.
In a recent Q&A, Lady Gaga revealed she lobbied for a sex scene with Salma Hayek in Gucci House– but the scene was ultimately cut from the film.
The film, based on the 2001 book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed”, tells the true story of Patrizia Reggiani (played by Lady Gaga) who marries the famous Gucci family. and ends up planning the murder of her husband and fashion house heir Maurizio Gucci. In the film, Hayek portrays Patrizia’s literal partner in crime, Giuseppina “Pina” Auriemma.
During MGM Studios Gucci House UK panel on January 18, Lady Gaga revealed that she considered Patrizia and Pina’s relationship to get a little frisky after Maurizio’s murder.
“There’s a whole side to this movie that you haven’t seen where Pina and I developed a sexual relationship,” Gaga said during the panel. “Director’s cut, who knows? But it’s a testament to [Ridley Scott] as a director because he allowed us to go there. I remember being on set with Salma and saying, ‘After Maurizio died, maybe it’s getting hot?'”
As the audience laughed, Hayek added, “You think she’s kidding…”
Given Gaga’s comments about a “director’s cut”, it looks like the scene was filmed but left on the editing room floor. Although the film took some liberties with the true story of Gucci, including a sexual relationship between the two women would certainly be a departure from what is known of Patrizia and Pina’s real-life relationship.
Although the two women were best friends and accomplices in the murder of Maurizio Gucci, there is no evidence that they were more intimate than that. But you can’t blame Gaga for trying. It’s Salma Hayek, after all.
