The Gucci family have released a new statement condemning Ridley Scott’s biopic, calling it amongst other things “extremely painful.”
House Of Gucci hit cinemas this month, after the family’s multiple public protests against the film.
“We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family,’’ Patrizia Gucci, second cousin to Maurizio, told The Associated Press in April.
“They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system….Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. but there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.”
Now post-release, the heirs of former fashion house chairman Aldo Gucci have released a statement outlining their further issues with the project.
