Lady Gaga, who plays Patrizia Reggiani in the recently released film House Of Gucci directed by Ridley Scott shared that she needed a psychiatric nurse on the sets of the film. 

She spoke about playing the part and more on the Just for Variety podcast. She said, "I had a psychiatric nurse with me towards the end of filming."

She added, "I sort of felt like I had to. I felt that it was safer for me. That's because I was always Patrizia. I always spoke in my accent. And even if I was speaking about things that weren't related to the movie. I wasn't pretending that Maurizio (her husband played by Adam Driver) was waiting for me downstairs - I was still living my life. I just lived it as her." 

Lady Gaga explained, "I brought the darkness with me home because her life was dark." She was also not proud of it. 

But Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, isn't proud of it. She also said that she did not voice this out to glorify her craft but she believed that actors shouldn't have to push themselves to that limit. 

She said she found it hard to comprehend it herself, "And I ask myself all the time why I do that. I've done some pretty extreme art pieces throughout my career - the things I've put my body through, my mind. It's like a walnut of sadness in my stomach as I say this to you. I don't know why I'm like that. I think that the best answer I could give you is I have a sort of romantic relationship with suffering for your art that I developed as a young girl, and it just sometimes goes too far. And when it does go too far, it can be hard to reel it in on your own."

Lady Gaga said that she might change her method. "It's not a secret that I'll do anything for art,"  she said and added, "it could be problematic for a child to be around. I probably will completely change this when I have a child, but I don't have a child yet. I want to be available and present for my children in a way that I think when you are acting in that way, it could be problematic for a child to be around."

She spoke of what she would like to work on next and said, "I'd love to do a romantic comedy," adding that her longtime manager Bobby Campbell suggested a rom-com after Gucci wrapped.
