Adam Driver on House of Gucci and How No Actor on Gucci Worked the Same Way

With director Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci now playing in theaters, I recently got to speak with Adam Driver about making the true crime story. Inspired by the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden, House of Gucci tells the events that lead Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga) to hire a hitman to shoot and kill, her then ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci (Driver). Rounding out the all-star cast is Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino, Jack Huston, Reeve Carney, Camille Cottin, and Salma Hayek. The script was written by Becky Johnston and Roberto Bentivegna.

During the interview, Driver talked about why working with Ridley Scott is like doing theater, the way Ridley Scott works with multiple cameras and very few takes, how every actor in House of Gucci works a different way on set, what it was like working with Lady Gaga and seeing her commitment to the role up close, his reaction when he first saw Jared Leto on set in his makeup, and more. In addition, he talked about doing SNL, why he loves Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, Noah Baumbach’s next movie, White Noise, and the craft of acting.
