AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa first made her name be recognized worldwide as a pop superstar, but deep down she's born an actor. Having been praised for her performance in "A Star Is Born" remake, the "Bad Romance" singer revealed that she always wanted to be an actress before pursuing her career in music.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards during E!'s "Live from The Red Carpet", the 32-year-old said her many personae that she's created when promoting her music was her way of channeling her passion in acting. "I think I've created characters for years so that I could be an actress because I always wanted to be one and I couldn't make it so I went for it as a musician," she shared.
Landing a female lead role in the Bradley Cooper-directed musical drama, GaGa opened up about how she merged into one with her character. "I discovered something in working on this film-it's something called alchemy," she told E! News. "It's like that you essentially are creating a character but you're really becoming the character...You know your lines, but you really just know what you're saying when you go on set, you throw it out the window. Bradley Cooper really taught me that."
She went on gushing about Cooper, who also stars opposite GaGa in the movie, "I worked very closely with Bradley Cooper you know, he's a tremendous visionary, tremendous director, tremendous actor to work with."
GaGa is up for Best Performance by An Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama for her portrayal of Ally in "A Star Is Born" and Best Original Song for "Shallow" from the film's soundtrack at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards. She previously won a Golden Globe in 2016 as Best Actress - Miniseries or Television Film for her role on "American Horror Story: Hotel".
For the Sunday, January 6 gala, the "Born This Way" hitmaker wore a lavender Valentino Couture gown with dramatic puff cold-shoulder sleeves. She took her look to the next level by dyeing her platinum blonde locks a periwinkle-meets-lilac hue to match her dress.
