Lady Gaga & Kerry Washington Take on Variety's 'Actors on Actors' Covers

Lady Gaga, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kerry Washington, and Aziz Ansari take the cover of two separate Actors on Actors Variety covers

Here’s what they shared…

Lady Gaga, on being herself: “I guess the thing is, what I am as Gaga really is what other people think Gaga is. It’s not necessarily what I am. Gaga is this stronger individual part of myself that I discovered being young in New York — loving music, meeting with young artists, working with musicians, with writers, studying the scene, and being involved in the lifestyle.”

Kerry, on producing and acting: “There was that point where it was like, OK, now I’m avoiding the difficult, painful acting of being Anita Hill by going over the schedule with the line producer. I have to now take off the producing hat and focus on going to that place that she was in. It was scarier than I thought it was going to be, but exciting also to learn how to take that hat on and off as a producer and actor.”
