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.”

Jennifer Lawrence & Aziz Ansari Had a Friendly Dinner on Valentine's Day: Details

Jennifer Lawrence and Aziz Ansari reportedly had a friendly dinner out together on Valentine’s Day (February 14) in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York!

The 25-year-old Oscar winning actress and the 32-year-old Master of None comedian ate out at the Commodore and noshed on mac ‘n’ cheese, fried chicken and nachos during a “friendly” dinner date, People reports.

“They looked friendly and were showing each other stuff on their iPhones and chatting and laughing,” a source told the mag. “They tried lots of different food and looked like they had a lot of fun. They looked like really good friends.”

According to the report, they had a corner of the bar reserved and at one point, Jennifer asked the bartender to take a photo of the pair.

Aziz was most recently linked to chef Courtney McBroom, while Jennifer was linked to Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, but the pair broke up last year.

You may remember, but Jennifer and Aziz have been pals for a few months at least! She was seen giving him a piggy back ride after Amy Schumer‘s SNL hosting debut.
