HOUSE OF GUCCI | Official Trailer #2

Adam Driver has admitted he never goes to wrap parties any more.

The actor, who most recently starred in House of Gucci, says he has not been to a party after finishing a shoot since he was in the TV series Girls, which ended in 2017.

He told W magazine he usually leave jobs “immediately”, adding: “I haven’t been to a wrap party since Girls. I just want to get the character out of my system and go home.”

In Girls, Driver played aloof hipster Adam Sackler, a character who dates both Lena Dunham’s character Hannah and Jemima Kirke’s Jessa.

The actor continued: “In some ways, House of Gucci was the most difficult. I do not live in the same world as Maurizio Gucci,” Driver said of his role as the fashion heir who was killed by a hitman hired by his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani (played by Lady Gaga).

“The way he picks up things that are valuable and discards them, the way he is the most elegant man – those qualities were interesting to think about. But after 14 hours a day of being a Gucci, I was ready for it to be over.”

Reactions on Twitter to the film were mixed, with one person calling it an “overwrought slog” and another describing it as a “mess”. Others, however, were hugely impressed with the performance from Lady Gaga, who went full method for the role and didn’t break character for a year and a half.
