Gucci Family Says 'House of Gucci' Is an Insult to Their Legacy

Production failed to consult the heirs of Aldo Gucci before premiering the film.

Having just hit theaters last week, House of Gucci is facing criticism from the Gucci family due to Ridley Scott’s inaccurate portrayal of their story.

According to a statement acquired by Variety, “the production of the film did not bother to consult the heirs before describing Aldo Gucci — president of the company for 30 years [played by Al Pacino in the film] — and the members of the Gucci family as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them.”

The heirs of Aldo Gucci feel that the film has “a tone and an attitude to the protagonists of the well-known events that never belonged to them.” The statement adds: “This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today.”

Additionally, Lady Gaga‘s role of Patrizia Reggiani, who was involved with the murder of Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver), was portrayed in a way to make Reggiani look like “a victim trying to survive in a male and male chauvinist corporate culture.” “This couldn’t be further from the truth,” the statement notes.

As of writing, no legal action is being taken by the Gucci family against Scott’s Scott Free shingle and Universal. Head over to Variety to read the full statement.
