Gina Gershon starred as Donatella Versace in the TV movie House Of Versace and she took that role quite seriously. So seriously, in fact, that she opted to do cocaine while shooting the movie. Crazy, right?
While speaking with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, she left him with the impression that she had actually snorted cocaine during the filming of the flick. A source at the network said, “Gina was deliberately going for shock value and did a ‘Did she or didn’t she?’ viewer reaction.”
The source said, “Andy’s jaw just dropped and viewers were left scratching their heads as she tried to appear coy while delivering blockbuster details from the set at the same time.”
With regard to the filming, Gina said, “They tried to give me B12, but I snorted cocaine. No, they gave me a choice between B12 or soy milk. So I did cocaine.”
The insider added, “Gina knows the power of keeping her fans guessing, and she certainly knows how to work an on-camera moment. I think she deliberately used the ‘real cocaine’ anecdote to generate controversy.”
Or is that her rep trying to make sure that she gets another job on another movie sometime this century? What do you think?
