Tom Ford is looking forward to watching Ridley Scott's House of Gucci.

The upcoming film, based on the 2001 book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden, depicts the events and aftermath of the 1995 murder of Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver) by his ex-wife Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga).

Ford, who was creative director of Gucci at the time of tragedy, is played by Reeve Carney in the movie, and the fashion star is very excited about seeing Scott's interpretation of events on the big screen.

"I read the screenplay before it was made and, you know, for somebody who lived it, you have to realise that things are glamorised in film, because when I read some of the descriptions of things that were happening and the characters, and what they were wearing, what they were doing - I mean, I was there, and they weren't quite so glamorous," he commented in an interview with GQ. "I would be doing the same thing if I were making that movie. I would bump up the glamour level a bit. I can't wait to see it."

And while Ford has ventured into moviemaking with 2009's A Single Man and 2016's Nocturnal Animals, he insisted he has no desire to make a movie about his experiences at Gucci from 1994 until 2004, when he departed to launch his own fashion house.

"No. No, absolutely not. No interest. No interest at all. I lived that, I did it. I wouldn't," the 60-year-old declared.

House of Gucci opens in U.S. cinemas on 24 November.
