“I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer.” Golden Globe Winner Lady Gaga and Jake Gyllenhaal for Variety’s #ActorsOnActors Issue

Recommended Posts

The two A-list stars take on Variety Magazine’s #ActorsOnActors cover story.

“I’ve never held anyone like this,” Jake Gyllenhaal says as he wrapped his arm around Lady Gaga’s waist, as a small group of handlers coo their approval.

“Mommy and Daddy love each other,” Gaga says. “Good job, honey.” 

Lady Gaga also took this opportunity to profess her love of Donnie Darko to the film’s star himself.

“I don’t want to lie and tell you I haven’t seen it so many times,” she told Jake Gyllenhaal.

“That just made my day,” he replied.


Lady Gaga says: "I wanted to be an actress before I wanted to be a singer. I would actually say playing a character for me is like living one long song."


They bond over films, social justice issues, their bodies of work, and getting lost in past acting roles they have portrayed. Video clips of the interview, courtesy of Variety Magazine and Amazon Prime:

Lady Gaga it's a smart woman, she knows american music industry it's going down, promotion activities are harder than ever, public attention span to music also it's getting lower, as singer/composer, everything it's a risk rn (not only for LG, i'm saying this as general ideal). And also she knows that her public image changed with her debut on cinemas and she now can appeal more in screens being actress and doing some random OST instead of playing the pop diva 24/7.
