One thing’s for sure: 2015 was the year that Lady Gaga proved she can do it all. Take, for example, the time she totally blew away everyone — including Julie Andrews — with her rendition of “The Sound Of Music” at the Academy Awards. Of course, 2015 was also the year she expanded her talent into acting after she starred in American Horror Story. . . and it turns out that she’s not only an awesome actress, but a fabulous co-star, as well.
In the latest issue of Men’s Fitness, Matt Bomer talked about what it’s like behind-the-scenes, including working alongside Lady Gaga, who played 115-year-old vampire The Countess. Naturally, it would be a little bit intimidating and perhaps scary to work with a major superstar whose name is known all over the world, but it turns out that the two were an absolutely perfect match, and Matt had nothing but good things to say about our fave pop star.
“My favorite thing about working with Lady Gaga is really just the sheer level of creativity she brings to the table,” he told the magazine. “And she’s really one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever known. Her intelligence is equaled by her heart.”
Pretty much the sweetest compliment humanly possible, but also well-deserved.
And on top of that, Matt said that Lady Gaga gave him some sage advice as well that he truly took to heart.
“She said a lot of creating a name and a place for yourself in this business is just having the heart to staying in the game,” he explained. “A lot of it is learning how to get up and dust yourself off and stand up against adversity or whoever may be an obstacle for you and having the heart to stay open as an artist and creative as an artist.”
This isn’t the first time Matt talked publicly about his adoration for his co-star. “Thank God [Lady Gaga] is not only a brilliant actress but also very relatable,” he told The Hollywood Reporter back in October. “She made sure she broke down the walls for all of us. When you’re that big of a star, the ball is in your court to level the playing field and make yourself approachable.”
We’ve got total heart eyes over here. Just another reason to love Lady Gaga even more.
