Jared Leto reveals how he mastered Paolo’s accent in House of Gucci | Entertainment

Jared Leto only had a “minute and a half” clip of Paolo Gucci talking to get his accent under control in “House of Gucci.”

The 49-year-old actor portrayed the goofy fashion designer in the 2021 crime drama, and he revealed how he learns different accents by spotting “mistakes” and “habits” the person makes.

However, he didn’t have much to say when preparing for the role of Italian Paolo.

He said: “I had about a minute and a half of his voice in an interview.”

After he wrapped filming ‘House of Gucci’ in Italy, the ‘Suicide Squad’ star had to travel to New York for his role as Israeli Adam Neumann in the ‘WeCrashed’ miniseries. AppleTV+.

Speaking at a TCA panel, he said: “I literally went from Italy to New York, just coming from ‘House of Gucci’ where I was performing in Italian, and I didn’t know they had actually a lot of similarities, both accents.

“With Adam’s accent, I wasn’t really doing an Israeli accent, I was doing Adam’s accent. An accent is just a series of mistakes. You learn to say a word and maybe that you don’t say it ‘correctly’, whatever that means, but that’s just a series of habits. It’s the way your mouth creates shapes. Everyone learns theirs differently.

The 30 Seconds to Mars rocker insisted it was easy to pick up the latter accent as he was in a ‘bubble’ with other Israelis while filming the drama about the rise and fall of society of WeWork coworking.

Jared added: “I think the insurance against things that slip into cartoonishness is probably to dive into as much truth as possible, right? In this case, I had a large team of Israelis around me who I worked with. We kind of had our own bubble during that time where we were all in a bubble, so that voice and that accent was around me all the time.
