Gucci family furious at Ridley Scott’s new film E! News UK – .

Representatives of the Gucci family have criticized Ridley Scott’s new film about the founders and heirs of the fashion house, insisting it is a very “painful” project to watch.

House of Gucci, starring Adam Driver and Lady Gaga, focuses on the relationship between Maurizio Gucci and Patrizia Reggiani, who hired a hitman to kill the heir to the fashion empire – and the family isn’t happy.

“The production of the film did not bother to consult with the heirs before describing Aldo Gucci – president of the company for 30 years – and the members of the Gucci family as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them… One said the statement reads.

“It is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today. “

Family members are also unhappy with Gaga’s portrayal of the real character, Reggiani, who was convicted in 1998 as “a victim trying to survive in a male chauvinist corporate culture.”

“This could not be further from the truth,” the statement continued. “There were several women who held high level positions.

“Gucci is a family that lives by honoring the work of its ancestors, whose memory does not deserve to be disturbed to put on a show that is fake and that does not do justice to its protagonists. “

And it looks like there could be legal action ahead – the statement ends with: “The Gucci family members reserve the right to take action to protect their name, image and dignity and that of their family members. relatives. “

House of Gucci opened in theaters on Friday (Nov 26, 21).
