    Lady Gaga apparently proved just that after meeting actor Danny Trejo as the two just happened to be sitting alongside each other at the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor in Los Angeles a while back.

    When the subject of Trejo's next film, Machete Kills, came up, the singer expressed her interest in someday working with the movie's director, Robert Rodriguez.

    A spokesperson at Open Road Films, who's releasing Machete Kills, tells E! News that Trejo put a call into Rodriguez on behalf of Gaga and the rest, as they say, is history.

    Last July, Gaga tweeted: "Yes, its true, I will be making my debut as an actress in the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @ RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!!"

    She also posted, at the time, the first glimpse of her character, dubbed La Chameleón.

    Machete Kills is scheduled to hit theaters July 31.
