Lady Gaga's Method Acting on 'House of Gucci' Sent Her To The Hospital & Made Her Throw Up

Lady Gaga goes for a grunge look while leaving her hotel in New York City on Wednesday afternoon (November 17).

The 35-year-old singer and actress met up with Jared Leto to promote their new movie, House of Gucci, during a Q&A panel discussion at AMC Theater.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga opened up about her choice to go method while playing Patrizia Reggiani in the movie, a choice that ultimately made her throw up from so much anxiety.

“I feel so insecure talking about this,” she told the magazine. “I get nervous that people will assume that I’m sensationalizing a certain type of acting.”

Gaga then revealed that she had used sense memory techniques to connect Patrizia‘s trauma to her own personal traumas, and she did it almost too well that director Ridley Scott had to intervene when he thought it was unhealthy.

“It’s a scene where I knock a lit candle across the room, and I remember I gave Salma [Hayek] a heart attack that day,” Gaga recalled of the moment. “I was falling apart as [Patrizia] fell apart. When I say that I didn’t break character, some of it was not by choice.”

That scene actually sent her to the hospital.

“Ridley said, ‘I don’t want you traumatizing yourself,’” she shared. “And I said, ‘I already have. I’ve already been through this anyway. I might as well give it to you.’ And he said, ‘Well, leave it here and don’t do this to yourself anymore.’”

Gaga continued on with her method acting, noting that she woke up around 3am to begin her transformation and that then evoked the process of trauma on her.

It was a mixture of “anxiety, fatigue, trauma, exhaustion, commitment and love,” she says. “You wake up, you throw up, you go to set, throw up again.”

House of Gucci opens on November 24.
