Lady Gaga has always had a great on and off-screen connections with her co-stars, now she's just revealed what she thinks of House of Gucci co-star Adam Driver.

The actress, who has spent the first half of the year in Italy, filming the new House of Gucci movie, took to Instagram to leave the actor a sweet message wishing him a happy birthday and also gushing about how incredible he is. 

The Poker Face singer also called him 'a weirdo like me' in the message, which she paired with a picture of the two together—behind the scenes on the House of Gucci film.

The star started her message by explaining the picture, "Me and my buddy Adam Driver. Happy Birthday to someone I feel so proud to know. This is us behind the scenes filming House of Gucci."

The post, which has already amassed nearly a million likes and hundreds of comments, went on to say, "I hope you have the best day, I’m the lucky actress who got to learn from you and lead with you every day. Shoutout to all your fans! I know why they adore you, it’s cuz you’re the best! 🇮🇹🎈🍝 (and you’re a weirdo like me 🤓)".

Fans of both the actors took to her post to wish Adam a happy birthday, while also praising the film and their acting. One fan even said, "This scene looks like it’s going to shake my very core."

The co-stars were first spotted back in March filming the Ridley Scott film based on the true murder of Maurizio Gucci, who was shot by an unknown gunman. Adam and Gaga play the lead couple Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci.

Their wardrobe, of course, also grabbed the spotlight - with one picture of them in snow gear—with Gaga dressed in a light, furry hat, and layers of chunky jewelry over her monochrome black outfit. Adam also wore all white, with a knitted jumper tucked underneath the all-white snowsuit he had tied at his waist.

Lady Gaga also started tounges wagging when she starred with Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born—with many thinking their on-screen romance had spilled over into real life. I mean who can blame us after that very romantic Oscars performance in 2019?

However, Bradley put those rumors to rest, finally, last week, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, when he admitted that, despite popular opinion, he and Gaga have always remained friends and the noticeable intimacy during the performance of "Shallow" was just the result of a process meant to calm his nerves.
