Patrizia Reggiani, did you know that Ridley Scott is about to make a movie with Lady Gaga about your life? How do you feel that they're putting what's happened in a movie?
I want to disassociate myself from it because I have two daughters. I don't want them to see what happened and relive the situation about their father.
So you're not happy about this news, I suppose you read about it in the newspapers?
What are you most afraid of? The fact that your daughters will experience it again?
What's your relationship with your daughters today?
It's nonexistent. They say I'm guilty because I wanted the inheritance.
You mean that famous contract that said that if something happened to your husband Maurizio Gucci, you'd get a huge amount of money? How much are we talking about?
Yes that one. I believe almost 1 million Swiss Francs.
Later during the show, Italian producer and actress Tiziana Rocca shared her meeting with Lady Gaga in Las Vegas during her promotional tour for A Star is Born, saying how Gaga told her how much she loved Italians and how she still wants to prove to be a good actress even beyond music.
Ridley Scott's movie about Gucci doesn't have a release date yet. Ridley is famous for directing Alien, The Gladiator, Blade Runner, Hannibal and many more.
