Lady Gaga has said she would like Rosario Dawson or Marisa Tomei to play her in a biopic.
If there was ever a film made of her life, the Grammy-winning pop star wants one of those two actresses to portray her on the big screen.
"I've always been a big fan of Rosario Dawson - you know what, I would have Marisa Tomei play me," she told US radio station Sirius XM.
"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."
Asked if she fancied acting herself, Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Gemanotta - said: "I think at some point, yes. I think I'm sort of destined for that screen at some point."
The 24-year-old, who is tipped to top the British charts this weekend, revealed she enjoys slugging whiskey while working.
"I am on the drunk diet. I live my life as I want to, and creatively. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working," she admitted.
"But the deal is I've got to work out every day and I work out hungover if I am hungover. And it's about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga."
