House of Gucci: How Lady Gaga took personal trauma into film role

The new film tells the story of love, betrayal and ultimately murder within the famous Italian fashion family.

The singer and actress plays Patrizia Reggiani, who served 18 years in jail for hiring a hitman to kill her former husband and label boss Maurizio Gucci.

"I used all of these memories, all of these traumas, all of these moments in my life," Lady Gaga told BBC News.

This summer, the star revealed she suffered a breakdown as a result of a sexual assault that left her pregnant more than 15 years ago.
