Lady Gaga says she would want Marisa Tomei to portray her in a movie about her life
"I would have Marisa Tomei play me. I am such a Marisa Tomei fan," Gaga said on SiriusXM's Morning Mash Up. "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."
The 24-year-old Italian-American singer favored the Tomei who won an Oscar for playing a smart-mouthed "guidette" in the 1992 film, "My Cousin Vinny."
Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta also grew up in New York, like 46-year-old Tomei and believes she is "destined" to appear on screen as an actress someday herself.
Gaga made a surprising Grammy entrance on February 13, arriving inside an egg. She won three of the six Grammys she was nominated for, including pop vocal album, female pop vocal performance and a short form music video award for her single, "Bad Romance."
The eccentric "Born this Way" singer claims she spent Valentine's Day in bed with her footwear.
"I was in my bed with tons of shoes," she said. "I was holding all my shoes, my Valentines."
Gaga received some criticism recently after debuting her new single, "Born This Way," after many claimed the song resembled Madonna's 1980s song, "Express Yourself."
Lady Gaga's second studio album, also called "Born This Way," is set for release on May 23, 2011. The singer promised fans at a concert stop inPoland in November that the record will be the "greatest album of this decade." It has been reported that the record may contain up to 20 tracks.
Lady Gaga also recently collaborated with veteran singer Elton John on a track called "Hello, Hello" for the new animated film "Gnomeo & Juliet." Elton John said that meeting the singer was "one of the nicest things of 2010."
