“I worked a lot with a dialogue coach to find the way that Donatella speaks, which is a little different from the way she spoke in the Nineties,” Penelope Cruz told in an interview: “The accent that she has, it’s Italian with a very international flavour – very rock’n’roll. I didn’t want to do an imitation of Donatella, or a caricature. I wanted to try to capture the essence of who she is.”

Penelope also commented on Ryan Murphy’s sense of style saying: “I had a few questions about how he was going to handle her portrayal, but he’s so classy, and he’s very respectful to people,” she explains.” This is a delicate story, because I’m playing someone who is alive, someone who lost her brother in a horrible way, and someone who still misses him very much 20 years later.”

It is interesting to see how the actress is dealing with her role and how she is feeling about Donatella: “This is a delicate story, because I’m playing someone who is alive, someone who lost her brother in a horrible way, and someone who still misses him very much 20 years later.”
