‘I Don’t Consider Myself To Be A Particularly Ethical Person’: Trailer And Movie Posters For ‘House Of Gucci’ Drops

In the trailer for "House of Gucci," Lady Gaga's Patrizia Reggiana ominously comments on ethics. She'd later orchestrate the murder of her former husband Maurizio Gucci in 1995.

The much-anticipated trailer for “House of Gucci” has dropped and it's dripping with hints of murder and betrayal.

The trailer which was released on Thursday is a montage of Gucci fashion shows, nights at Studio 54 and ski slopes all set to the tune of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass.” 

The trailer ends with an arm holding a gun, equipped with a silencer, before cutting to Lady Gaga holding a cup of espresso while saying, “I don’t consider myself to be a particularly ethical person, but I am fair.” 

She plays Patrizia Reggiana, the former wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was the head of the Gucci fashion house before he was murdered in 1995. He was gunned down in the foyer of his Milan office at the age of 46.

Reggiana was convicted in 1998 for setting up Gucci’s murder and became dubbed a “black widow” by the Italian press, as Vogue reported in 2004. She was sentenced to 29 years in prison but only served 16. 

The hitman in the case, Benedetto Ceraulo, was handed a life sentence. Reggiana’s psychic, Giuseppina Auriemma, who made contact with the hitman, was sentenced to 25 years. 

Reggiana was a socialite when she married Gucci in 1973, and the pair became a power couple before their 1985 split when he left for a younger woman, People reported. Following the breakup, she apparently openly threatened to kill him, The Guardian reported in 2016.

“It’s time to take out the trash,” Reggiana’s character says in the trailer, prodding Maurizio to overhaul the family business.

“But they’re my family,” Gucci, played by Adam Driver, responds.

“So am I,” Gaga asserts.

The film also stars a virtually unrecognizable Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek and Al Pacino.

“House of Gucci” which is directed by Ridley Scott, is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 24. It’s based on the 2001 book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed,” which details the case.
