In the podcast, Lambert also revealed how he auditioned for the role of Lady Gaga’s best friend in the recent remake of A Star is Born, even though he knew he wasn't the best fit for the part. He spoke about how he wanted to appear in the blockbuster film along with the iconic Lady Gaga but had doubts regarding compatibility once he read the script. 

In the podcast, Lambert mentioned it was funny to him that he auditioned for the part because all he was told about the part was that "she's going to have a gay best friend". He mentioned how he thought the idea was cute and so he got the script. However, he talked about how, when he read the script, he feared he might not be the right fit for the role mentioning how the character was Latino and had to use Latin slangs, including calling Gaga's character in the film "mami". He thought about not auditioning since he didn't think he would be right for the role; however, he did it anyway. He also spoke about how he was relieved when the role eventually went to Anthony Ramos.
