Lady GaGa Voice Over Scrapped From Entire 'House of Gucci'

The drama movie about the Gucci dynasty was supposed to feature a voice over by the Patrizia Reggiani depicter but director Ridley Scott vetoed against it.

AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa was set to provide a voice over throughout her latest movie "House of Gucci", screenwriter Roberto Bentivegna has revealed.

The singer-actress portrays Patrizia Reggiani in the new movie, about the family behind the Italian fashion label, and her original role was even bigger.

Speaking to Vulture, Bentivegna reveals, "The very first draft had a ten-page opening sequence. It was the history of the brand and the Gucci family."

"One of my favorite openings ever is the first five minutes of Bram Stoker's Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola. I was trying to do that."

He continues, "The other thing that got cut was a voiceover throughout the movie that I wrote for Patrizia. Ridley (Scott, director) decided that we didn't need it and we got rid of it."

"But all the drafts had that voiceover. I mean, I've been very lucky, at one point, the script was 150 pages long, which is kind of insane. It got down to 135 by the time we were shooting. We didn't really cut any scenes."

Besides busy making movie, Lady GaGa released a new album with Tony Bennett. "Love for Sale" was launched in September this year.

She recently shared a sweet message for her collaborator's wife Susan after their CBS special "One Last Time" aired.

Six months after the music legend's family revealed he is suffering from Alzheimer's, the singer and his "Love For Sale" collaborator teamed up for his final New York performances in August (21).

The gigs featured the pair performing tracks from their latest release along with 2014 record "Cheek to Cheek" and, after the show was broadcast on Sunday (28Nov21), Gaga took to social media to honour Susan.

Crediting her as being the real "lady" of the night, she penned, "Thank you Susan for how you love @itstonybennett... I love you and Tony and the whole family so much. I'll cry about tonight forever."

The pair have picked up six Grammy nominations for their recent release, including nods in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Album categories.

"Thank you so much to the @RecordingAcademy for these 6 nominations for Love For Sale," the "Bad Romance" star admitted upon receiving the news. "I am stunned and shocked and beyond grateful. I don't know what to say. I just keep crying and am utterly speechless."

"This means so much to me, @itstonybennett, the Bennetts, my family, jazz music, and the great Cole Porter, who wrote all these timeless classics. I'll never forget today and congratulating Tony on his 6 nominations..."
