Marisa Tomei believes she isn't the right person to essay Lady Gaga in a movie on the Poker face singer's life. Nevertheless, she is flattered that Gaga wants her to take on the role.

"I was so flattered and I couldn't believe she said that. But I was thinking, 'What kind of movie?' Is it going to be some avant-garde thing where she goes back in time or I would play her older than she actually is? I don't understand, is it a 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' thing," quoted Tomei as saying.

Lady Gaga wants Marisa Tomei to play her in a biopic.

Gaga had once said that her friends often call her Tomei when she gets angry.

The singer told SiriusXM Morning Mash Up in February: "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 gums."
