The singer recently caused a stir on social media after she appeared in the trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming film House Of Gucci.
She stars as Patrizia Reggiani, the wife (and later ex-wife) Maurizio Gucci (played by Oscar nominee Adam Driver). She was convicted in 1998 of paying a hitman to kill Gucci’s heir in 1995.
Reggiani was finally released from prison in 2016 after serving 18 years for the crime.
The film mainly takes place in the year of Gucci’s murder, four years after the couple divorced, although it also seems to partially describe their relationship.
Some of the strongest reactions to the trailer were reserved for Jared Leto, who was unrecognizable under layers of makeup and prosthetics that allowed him to play Paolo Gucci.
The Ridley Scott film also features supporting performances from acclaimed actors, including Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and Salma Hayek.
