Starring opposite the ‘A Star is Born’ actress in the Ridley Scott-directed movie, the ‘Eternals’ star heaps praises on her co-star’s perfect accent and professionalism on the set.
AceShowbiz –Salma Hayek has hailed her “House of Gucci” co-star Lady GaGa as an “incredibly talented” actress.
The “A Star is Born” actress stars in the hotly-anticipated Sir Ridley Scott movie as Patrizia Reggiani, fashion trailblazer Maurizio Gucci’s ex-wife, who was convicted of orchestrating his murder after he had an affair. And Salma, who portrays Pina Auriemma, a close confidante of Patrizia (GaGa), has gushed over how “professional” and “extraordinary” the “Stupid Love” hitmaker was on set and heaped praise on her “perfect” accent.
“We were talking on the phone and she was already Patrizia. Her accent was perfect,” she said of working with the 35-year-old Grammy winner on the upcoming true crime drama. “I think we had a lot of fun reliving scenes that are not even in the movie and she is the ultimate professional, and I could not wait to get on that set. We really couldn’t wait to get on the set and just do it and do it together and play off of each other.”
The 54-year-old Mexican star added GaGa has “extra abilities that not every brilliant actor has,” beginning with being “good with the accent.”
“Of course, she has an amazing ear. She is extraordinary improvising, and not everybody has that. She really embodies the character,” Salma continued. “Her level of commitment – I’ve only seen maybe once or twice somebody commit to a character like she does.”
Aside from praising GaGa, Salma talked about her experience working with Ridley for the project. “I was expecting nothing but the best from Ridley, so it would have been hard to be surprised in any way, but what I was not expecting is how much fun it is to work with him,” she recalled.
“I was expecting it of Lady GaGa, but he is a lot of fun on the set,” the wife of Kering CEO Francois-Henri Pinault continued. “And how much freedom, you feel a lot of freedom and you feel so safe. His attention to detail, nothing misses his eye – nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing. From before doing the scenes and also during the scenes, he misses nothing.”
