    The "House Of Gucci" Movie Casting Is So Incredibly Good: Here Are The Real-Life People Vs. The Actors Who Are Playing Them

    Many Oscars incoming.

    Well, well, well. We're back and everyone is talking about the (homosexual) movie event of the year, House of Gucci.

    MGM

    The movie stars Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, and more in telling the story of Patrizia Reggiani's attempt to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, the grandson of the founder of Gucci.

    The movie trailer was released last week and it's truly fucking incredible.

    And lastly, Salma Hayek, who plays Pina Auriemma:

    MGM

    Pina Auriemma was Patrizia's personal medium. She was convicted and sentenced to 25 years in prison for her role in Maurizio Gucci's murder.

    I can't find any pictures I can include here, so you'll just have to trust me that she's a character.

    OK, that's all I got for you now, ciao ciao!
