Father, son, and House of Gucci. After months of anticipation, fans can finally see Lady Gaga and Adam Driver as Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci in the 2021 Ridley Scott release. They appear as a married couple on screen, but are these co-stars related in real life?
Here’s what we know about these Academy Award-winning and nominated actors.
Adam Driver and Lady Gaga star in ‘House of Gucci’
Lady Gaga, also known by her real name Stefani Germanotta, is the artist behind songs like “Bad Romance,” the activist behind the Born This Way Foundation, and the Academy Award-winning actor and songwriter behind A Star is Born.
Star Wars fans know Driver as the fearsome Kylo Ren from the sequel trilogy. This actor also earned an Academy Award nomination for his role in BlacKkKlansman. He earned his second nomination for his role in Netflix’s Marriage Story.
Now, Lady Gaga and Driver star as Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci respectively in the Scott-created film, House of Gucci. This production tells the story of the Guccis — a powerful family filled with betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately murder.
Are Lady Gaga and Adam Driver related in real life?
Lady Gaga and Driver portray a married couple in this 2021 release, speaking with Italian accents throughout the production. Some critics note that Lady Gaga may earn an Academy Award nomination in the Best Actress category for her role in this 2021 film. However, these actors are not related in real life.
Driver and Lady Gaga are considerably close friends, though. Both performers share support for one another during interviews. Lady Gaga also shared birthday well-wishes to her co-star on social media — although Driver does not have a public Instagram account.
“I’m the lucky actress who got to learn from you and lead with you every day,” Lady Gaga captioned an Instagram post. “Shoutout to all your fans! I know why they adore you. It’s [because] you’re the best! (And you’re a weirdo like me).”
Outside of House of Gucci, Driver is married to actor and activist Joanne Tucker. Elle reported that, as of March 2021, Lady Gaga has been in a relationship with tech entrepreneur Michael Polansky.

Driver and Lady Gaga aren’t the only stars of this drama. House of Gucci includes appearances from Academy Award-winning and nominated actors Al Pacino, Jared Leto, and Salma Hayek.
“Chemistry is not something I work on with people,” Driver said during an interview with ET Online of his relationship with his co-stars. “We don’t sit at a table and ‘now let’s work on chemistry with each other.’ It’s just kind of naturally happens when people are prepared, and they show up, and they’re awesome and available and can play.”
House of Gucci is now playing in theaters.
