KEY POINTS

  • Jared Leto's new photos from the set of "House of Gucci" have left his fans impressed
  • He has a bald patch instead of his signature long tresses after transforming into his character
  • He will play fashion designer Paolo Gucci in the upcoming film

Jared Leto's new photos from the set of "House of Gucci" have emerged online, and his fans are all for his transformation.

In the new photos published by various outlets, including Page Six, the 49-year-old actor is in character as fashion designer Paolo Gucci, sporting dramatic makeup to make him look much older and balding for the upcoming film, which is currently shooting in Milan, Italy.

Leto, who has wrinkled skin, gray hair and a receding hairline, can be seen wearing a pink corduroy suit and green loafers in the set photos.

The Oscar winner's fans soon took to Twitter to comment on the physical transformation. "Jared Leto really transformed for Paolo Gucci in House Of Gucci," one wrote.

Another loved the new look and said, "Jared Leto looks unrecognisable with receding hairline after arriving on set to film House of Gucci. Wow."

The movie directed by Ridley Scott is based on Sara Gay Forden's book "The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed."

"Ridley Scott’s one of my favorite directors, and Al Pacino plays my dad. So it’s another fun one," Leto told Variety.

In the February interview, he shared shoot details. “We haven’t started shooting yet, so we’re just in the preparation phase. I think we start in about 40-something days in Italy, so yep, exciting and interesting," he said.

"House of Gucci" also stars Adam Driver as fashion mogul Maurizio Gucci and Lady Gaga as his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of plotting his murder in 1995.

Earlier this month, Gaga had posted a photo with Driver from the set. “Signore e Signora Gucci #HouseOfGucci,” Gaga captioned the photo shared on Twitter.

Photos of the two actors also surfaced online earlier this month. Gaga and Driver were spotted wearing period costumes. In between shots, they were photographed sharing a laugh with some of the members of the crew and Scott. Gaga will return as a brunette after her performance in 2018’s “A Star Is Born.”

More photos from the set have been shared online. In one of them, Gaga is seen driving a vintage car, and Driver is walking while holding a cup. In another, they are seen eating a snack together.

"House of Gucci" is expected to release in November.
