“Confused, unsettled and flattered”. These are the first three adjectives that come to mind Veronica Gentili when he talks about his reaction to the leadership proposal Hyenas on Italia 1. “Then I thought it could be a nice adventure and a way to get involved.” But it wasn’t a decision that was made immediately. She didn’t throw herself into the void.
“When Pier Silvio Berlusconi proposed to me to become the new presenter of Le Iene, I was breathless. On the one hand, I was lucky to have been chosen, but on the other hand, I had a thousand doubts because it was “something” completely different from anything I had done before. I took some time and talked to my father and my partner about it. In the end, however, I decided to take the plunge. And here I am.”
From Stasera Italia to Controcorrente today with a different program that also consists of investigations that she is also ready to carry out disguised as a correspondent. But few people know that Veronica comes from the theater. She tells Di Più Tv: “I always wanted to act, even when I was very small. After graduating, I attended the Silvio D’Amico National Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rome. And then I started working mainly in theater.
Then suddenly journalism came along. Because “besides acting, I have always had a passion for writing and politics.” And so, when I was still an actor, I started working with the newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano. It all started from there.” From then on, they started calling her as a commentator on TV. Then she became a presenter. Now hyena.
Veronica Gentili does not hide that beauty helped her. “It would be hypocritical to say otherwise. These days, good looks help in any profession, let alone when it doesn’t help those who work on television. But there are pros and cons: “If you are a beautiful woman, you have to work twice as hard to show how much you are worth. You always have to be prepared “on the spot” to avoid people thinking that you were just chosen for your looks or because you might be “the girlfriend of…”.
Veronica Gentili, who is her boyfriend
“For the last five years, I have always worked seven days a week, including holidays. I put work above all else and gave up many evenings. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. Next to me I have a person who helped me and understands me. Yes, I’ve been engaged for nine years: his name is Massimo Galimberti He is involved in cinema and is an editorial consultant. For me it is fundamental to have him close to me.
