Lady Gaga: is there nothing she can't throw her hat at?

Robert Rodriguez has said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The director first worked with the pop icon on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He also told of the element of chance involved: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour."

Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For stars Jessica Alba, Eva Green and Josh Brolin, as well as Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke, and will be released on August 29.
