"I ran from Stefani for a long time. I put on a superhero cape and called myself Lady Gaga," she shared. "You challenged me to deep dive into a place where I had to see her again, be Stefani again."

The artist then went on to share how grateful she is for the actor. "I'm so grateful to you, not just for making me a better actress, but I've been able to call on you as a friend, and cry and be myself and have you never ever judge me and still respect me as a professional," she said. "I've never had an artistic experience like this before."
