Lady Gaga says she’s “destined” to do movies

By Sean O’Connell Madonna did it. Britney did, as well. Christina did it just last year. Needless to say, Lady Gaga will be next.

In an interview with Sirius Satellite Radio on Friday morning, the Grammy-winning talent told Morning Mash Up hosts that a future in motion pictures is inevitable.

“I think at some point, yes. I think I’m sort of destined for that screen at some point,” Gaga said. She even went so far as to suggest Rosario Dawson or Marisa Tomei as the actresses she’d most like to try playing Gaga in a story about her life.

“I am such a Marisa Tomei fan. All my friends call me Marisa when I get angry. Because my New York accent just flies out of my body and I start smacking my gum,” she said.

Could you see Lady Gaga on screen? Granted, music videos tend to prepare singers for the movie spotlight. And some truly succeed. But more often than not, we’ve witnessed pop stars fizzle when they transition to the big screen, be it Spears’ “Crossroads,” Mariah Carey’s “Glitter,” or the atrocious “From Justin to Kelly” from the “American Idol” wheelhouse. If Gaga finds the right material, anything is possible. Finding that golden script, however, is harder than it looks.
