Lady Gaga: born to be a movie star?

The Grammy-winning singer, fashion trailblazer, gay rights activist and recent hatchling is no stranger to the camera, and in an interview on Friday, she said she plans on taking that to the next level: the big screen.

Speaking to "The Morning Mash Up" on Sirius XM Radio, Gaga was asked whether she planned on a movie career. Her response?

"I think at some point, yes. I think I'm sort of destined for that screen at some point."

To this point, perhaps her biggest role has been in the nine minute short film/music video for her song, "Telephone."

Beyond being on the big screen herself, she's also given thought to who would play HER in a film. Her choices?

"I've always been a big fan of Rosario Dawson," she said. "Oh, you know what, I would have Marisa Tomei play me. I am such a Marisa Tomei fan. All my friends call me Marisa when I get angry. Because my New York accent just flies out of my body and I start smacking my gum."

She also talked about how she keeps in shape -- and gave a very interesting response: "I'm on the drunk diet," she said.

Huh?

"I live my life as I want to, and creatively. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working. But the deal is I've got to work out every day and I work out hung over if I am hung over. And it's about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga..."

She mentioned drunkdiet.com -- which is the website of her bartender/author boyfriend, Luc Carl. Very sly, Gaga.

Gaga recently released her smash hit new song, "Born This Way," which you can listen to HERE.
