Marvel's Eternals star Salma Hayek has been filming the Gucci movie, titled House of Gucci, alongside legendary popstar and A Star is Born actress Lady Gaga, and she has nothing but praise for her co-star.

Hayek plays Pina Auriemma, a woman who was convicted for helping plan the murder of Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver), which was organised by Gucci's ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani, the person Gaga is playing in the film.

Speaking to Variety, Hayek said: "She is incredibly talented, incredibly smart. And she has on top of all that, extra abilities that not every brilliant actor has, which is she's good with the accent.

"Of course, she has an amazing ear. She is extraordinary improvising, and not everybody has that. She really embodies the character.

"Her level of commitment – I've only seen maybe once or twice somebody commit to a character like she does. And she's also a great team player."

The actress also loved working with director Ridley Scott, the famous helmer of Alien and Gladiator, stating: "What I was not expecting is how much fun it is to work with him.
