Lady Gaga’s acting career is off to a great start. The singer has taken Hollywood by storm thanks to her dedication to her characters and talent for selecting outstanding parts, establishing herself as one of the most successful musician-to-actor transfers in recent memory. Following the tremendous success of Bradley Cooper’s “A Star is Born” adaptation, which garnered her an Oscar for Best Original Song, she received glowing accolades for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in “House of Gucci.” Instead of resting on her laurels, Lady Gaga may be aiming for a new title: director.
In an interview with Deadline, the “House of Gucci” actor said she has appreciated the challenge of learning how movies are created and could imagine herself creating one when she has the time.
“I’m interested in it, yes,” she responded, “but I’d like to practice and become more nuanced and nimble.” “And I would never say that I could be great at something if I wasn’t a good enough student yet.”
Lady Gaga, who has directed several of her own music videos, stressed that she takes filmmaking seriously and would only contemplate directing a movie after much research.
“I’ve made short films for my own music videos, and I love and cherish them.” “But they’re forever mine and inside of my own life and the rapture of my existence,” she remarked. “I believe that telling a story requires an authenticity and knowledge of filmmaking that I would like to study in the same way that I studied acting.”
She went on to equate directing films to other artistic undertakings that were somewhat outside of her comfort zone. “I’d compare it to people asking me years ago if I wanted to be a fashion designer because I loved fashion so much,” she remarked. “And I remember saying, ‘What fashion designers do is not what I do, but I love fashion.'” That is to say, I am not a film director. But I could be. I would have to spend a large portion of my life, if not all of my life, to that, like a devoted artist does.”
