'My grandfather was a very handsome man, like all the Guccis, and very tall, blue eyes and very elegant. He is being played by Al Pacino, who is not very tall already, and the photo shows him as fat, short, with sideburns, really ugly,' said Patrizia Gucci

On behalf of the Gucci family, Patrizia Gucci, the great-grandchild of Guccio Gucci, released a statement to The Associated Press blasting director Ridley Scott’s new film “House of Gucci,” starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver as Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci.

“We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family. 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,” Patrizia Gucci told AP.

The Associated Press further reported, “Patrizia Gucci said her family will decide what further action they might take after seeing the film. Their concerns stem from the casting of top actors to play family members whose stories intersect little with Maurizio Gucci’s murder, the lack of current contact with Scott’s production company and inaccuracies they see in the book on which the film is based.”

Patrizia claimed that she tried to reach Ridley Scott, but never heard back, which “only heightens the family’s concerns.”

The casting of Al Pacino and Jared Leto as Aldo and Paolo Gucci, respectively, have been slammed by the Gucci family, who were, to say the least, not impressed.

“My grandfather was a very handsome man, like all the Guccis, and very tall, blue eyes and very elegant. He is being played by Al Pacino, who is not very tall already, and this photo shows him as fat, short, with sideburns, really ugly. Shameful, because he doesn’t resemble him at all,” added Patrizia.

Jared Leto’s “unkempt hair and a lilac corduroy suit” also looked “horrible, horrible,” the Gucci heir said. “I still feel offended.”

 “House of Gucci” is currently in development and being made in association with the Gucci fashion house, which the family has not owned since 1993.

The film is slated for release on November 24.
