In an interview with the podcast "The Trenches Talk," cinematographer Lawrence Sher, who has shot both Joker films, discussed Lady Gaga's appearance in the picture.

He claimed that because Lady Gaga/Stefani were always staying in character at the filming locations, he didn't recognize her.

Lady Gaga is very dedicated to her acting, as she once recalled her acting for House of Gucci, where she practiced Italian for nine months before shooting.
