Lady Gaga is coming to a movie theater near you.
After years of collecting musical accolades, the 30-year-old songstress celebrated her first foray onto the small screen last year in American Horror Story: Hotel—a role that sent her home with a Golden Globe.
Less than a year since her awestruck acceptance speech, Gaga has officially landed her first silver screen lead role in an upcoming reboot of the 1954 classic, A Star Is Born, directed by and also starring Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper.
"Im elated to be directed by & starring w/ Bradley in this project. He's a brilliant visionary artist," she tweeted Tuesday upon announcement of the news.
While Gaga has proven her acting chops on television, her expected success in film will solidify her as a true triple threat in Hollywood. Fortunately, she's in the most esteemed of company. While venturing into a new genre of work may be daunting, a handful of the industry's most prominent and celebrated stars began their careers not in front of a camera, but behind a microphone.
