What House Of Gucci's Dialogue Coach Really Thinks Of Lady Gaga's Accent

Ridley Scott's "House of Gucci" promises to bring some glitz, glamor, and drama to the fall movie season. The film, which chronicles the story of the titular fashion family, follows Patrizia Reggiani (portrayed by Lady Gaga), who was convicted for arranging the 1995 murder of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver in the movie) after he had an affair and left her for his mistress. "House of Gucci" focuses on the troubled couple's time together and aims to shed some light on the events that led to the fashion mogul's demise.

Lady Gaga solidified herself as an A-list movie star following her buzzworthy turn in 2018's "A Star Is Born." However, "House of Gucci" might prevent the multi-hyphenate talent from receiving similar acclaim. The movie has polarized critics, though many did have fun with the film's campy sensibilities. Furthermore, Lady Gaga's attempt at an Italian accent has been the center of attention for the wrong reasons. That said, what does one of the dialogue coaches who work on the film think about Gaga's performance?

Lady Gaga's accent isn't very Italian, according to a dialogue coach

Francesca De Martini was hired as a dialogue coach for Salma Hayek for her scenes in Ridley Scott's "House of Gucci." However, it seems that Lady Gaga could have used a couple of sessions with the De Martini as well, based on the dialogue coach's latest comments. In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, she discussed the pop star's performance and shared her own reservations about her accent. "I feel bad saying this, but her accent is not exactly an Italian accent, it sounds more Russian," De Martini revealed.

De Martini went on to say that she was the only dialogue coach on the set of "House of Gucci," and she couldn't help but overhear Gaga's accent while working with Hayek. "I was noticing when I was on set because 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."

Despite the criticism, however, Lady Gaga recently stated that she fully committed herself to the role and went to extremes to get the accent right. Speaking to British Vogue, she revealed, "I will be fully honest and transparent: I lived as her [Reggiani] for a year and a half. I spoke with an accent for nine months of that. I never broke. I stayed with her."

 "House of Gucci" arrives in theaters on November 24.
