Salma Hayek wore a stunning gold Grecian dress at the House of Gucci film premiere last night.
The film, based on the real-life Gucci family, also stars Lady Gaga and Jared Leto.
Directed by Ridley Scott, the story focuses on the tumultuous marriage of Gucci heir, Maurizio, and social butterfly Patrizia Reggini. Maurizio becomes involved in a huge legal battle with family members to gain control of the company before his eventual murder. Salma Hayek, takes on the role of Giuseppina “Pina” Auriemma – a close confidante of Patrizia.
Salma, spoke fondly of her time working with Lady Gaga. She said. “She is incredibly talented, incredibly smart. And she has on top of all that, extra abilities that not every brilliant actor has, which is she’s good with the accent. She really embodies the character. Her level of commitment — I’ve only seen maybe once or twice somebody commit to a character like she does. And she’s also a great team player.”
Filming took place in Rome and Hayek said she reveled in the opportunity to gain weight, guilt-free. “You’re in Rome and you’re in a movie and it’s the rounder you are, the better it is for your character. That to me was nirvana. I swear I would order with a smile on my face: ‘I’ll have the pasta again.’ I love pasta. And it would come and it would be like guilt-free and — Oh, my God — it was delicious.”
