How The Real Life Gucci Family Feels About House Of Gucci

Lady Gaga has proven over the last decade that she's much more than a singer. She starred in "American Horror Story: Hotel" and appeared in its sequel, "AHS: Roanoke," before starring in the still-talked-about "A Star Is Born" (via IMDb). Now, she's back in theaters with "House of Gucci."

"House of Gucci" follows Lady Gaga's Patrizia Reggiani and Adam Driver's Maurizio Gucci. In real life, Reggiani served prison time for hiring a hitman to murder Gucci, her ex-husband, and the film tells the story of their love — and its consequences (via Entertainment Online). It also details the running of the Gucci business, which Gucci fans around the world haven't necessarily seen before.

Gucci died in 1995 per The Guardian, and his survivors continue to operate the family business. Now, "House of Gucci" entered theaters on November 24 and has divided critics and audience viewers. According to Rotten Tomatoes, the audience score is currently sitting at 84% while the critics' score is lower at 62%. Still, one question remains: how does the Gucci family feel about the film?

Aldo Gucci's survivors find House of Gucci to be 'extremely painful'

In addition to portraying Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci, "House of Gucci" sees Al Pacino playing Aldo Gucci, the man who served as the Gucci brand's chairman until his death in 1986. According to Variety, Aldo's descendants aren't thrilled about the film's interpretation of Aldo — Maurizio's uncle — or the rest of the Gucci family.

In fact, Aldo's descendants released a statement which in part read: "The production of the film did not bother to consult the heirs before describing Aldo Gucci — president of the company for 30 years — and the members of the Gucci family as thugs, ignorant and insensitive to the world around them."

Moreover, the statement continued, "This is extremely painful from a human point of view and an insult to the legacy on which the brand is built today." The statement adds that Aldo's descendants haven't appreciated the film's cast members' statements about or attitudes toward Aldo and the rest of the Gucci family.

They believe that Gaga and the rest of the cast paint Reggiani as "a victim trying to survive in a male and male chauvinist corporate culture," which they denounce. After all, she was responsible for their family member's death.

Ultimately, the Gucci family won't be returning to theaters to see "House of Gucci." Will you?
