Lady Gaga Fans Are Defending Her Accent In “House Of Gucci” After The Film’s Dialect Coach Criticized It

“I feel bad saying this, but her accent is not exactly an Italian accent.”

The movie, starring Gaga and Adam Driver, is based on the real-life story of Reggiani, who was convicted of arranging the murder of her husband, late Gucci head Maurizio Gucci, in 1995.

As excited as Gaga fans are for the movie, they aren’t too pleased with the film’s dialect coach, Francesca De Martini, who recently criticized Gaga’s Italian accent.

De Martini told The Daily Beast of Gaga’s Italian accent, “I feel bad saying this, but her accent is not exactly an Italian accent, it sounds more Russian.”

De Martini was brought on set to work with Salma Hayek, who plays Giuseppina “Pina” Auriemma. “When I was on set, I had earphones working with Salma and hearing what she was saying so I could help her to get it right. So I could hear Lady Gaga as well,” De Martini said. 

Now, fans are rushing to Gaga’s defense, sharing side-by-side comparisons of Gaga’s accent and the real Patrizia Reggiani.

A YouTube commenter also made the excellent point that “Gaga’s accent should be compared to Patrizia, not the average Italian [because] Patrizia had a VERY particular way of speaking that was also extremely performative, as she wanted to sound like a rich[,] powerful woman.”

It’s hard not to concur with that side-by-side.

Likewise, Gaga has spoken about everything she went through to get into character, telling British Vogue: “I will be fully honest and transparent: I lived as [Patrizia] for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months of that.”

“It was nearly impossible for me to speak in the accent as a blonde,” Gaga added. “I instantly had to dye my hair, and I started to live in a way whereby anything that I looked at, anything that I touched, I started to take notice of where and when I could see money.”
