Adam Driver Said He Was Ready For "House Of Gucci" To Be Over And Revealed He Doesn't Attend Wrap Parties Because He Just Wants To "Go Home"

"In general, I leave jobs immediately...I just want to get the character out of my system and go home."

House of Gucci might've been a box office success, but its stars were more than happy for filming to be over — just ask Adam Driver!

The 38-year-old actor had a busy year in 2021, starring in three movies that included the fashion house drama in which he played Maurizio Gucci.

He also starred in Annette and The Last Duel.

Speaking in a recent interview with W Magazine for its annual Best Performances issue, Adam revealed that out of the three movies he starred in that year, House of Gucci was the hardest, not least because he considers himself the polar opposite to the character he portrays onscreen.

"In some ways, House of Gucci was the most difficult. I do not live in the same world as Maurizio Gucci," he said. "The way he picks up things that are valuable and discards them, the way he is the most elegant man — those qualities were interesting to think about."

Adam added that after endless 14-hour days playing Maurizio, he was more than happy for it to come to an end, which led to the admission that he doesn't attend wrap parties when filming for a project concludes.

Production for House of Gucci began in February last year, taking place in Italy. Filming then wrapped a few months later in May.

"After 14 hours a day of being a Gucci, I was ready for it to be over," he said. "In general, I leave jobs immediately. I haven't been to a wrap party since Girls. I just want to get the character out of my system and go home."

However, despite the confession that he was glad for filming to end, Adam revealed he loves working with director Ridley Scott, whom he also teamed up with for The Last Duel before filming House of Gucci.

"I fucking love him," he said of the director. "He uses four cameras at a minimum, and it's like theater-in-the-round. He draws his own storyboards, and the productions move very fast. He doesn't lose momentum over a meaningless detail."

Lady Gaga, who starred alongside Adam as Patrizia Reggiani and has been open about her method acting in order to find the character, also appeared happy to leave filming (and Patrizia) behind, not least because she was adamant that a swarm of flies had been sent to follow her around.

"On the last day of filming, I was on the balcony of my apartment in Rome, and I was blasting Dean Martin singing 'Mambo Italiano,' and I had a cigarette hanging out of my mouth," Gaga told W Magazine in a separate interview. "I was Patrizia. But I knew I had to say goodbye to her: Large swarms of flies kept following me around, and I truly began to believe that she had sent them. I was ready to let her go."
