    I truly cannot wait.

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

    We're starting to see glimpses of the characters, and I thought: You know what's fun? Looking at side-by-sides of what the actors look like next to the actual people.
