Two actresses whose names have been coming up again and again during the award season are Glenn Close and Lady Gaga.

Each one of these ladies has her respective fan base and this means, in the eye of the public, that they are pitted against each other. It turns out that's not really how it is in private. 

Apparently, regardless of whom you support, the more important story here is the sweet friendship between Glenn Close and Lady Gaga's mother, Cynthia Germanotta.

She even shared a cute story about how the pair once ended up in Germanotta's old apartment building after having lunch together. A kind stranger let them get into the lobby in the middle of a rainstorm. 

During the Critics Choice Awards, where Close and Gaga actually emerged winners (Close for 'The Wife' and Gaga for 'A Star Is Born'), the pop star confirmed the friendship between Close and her mother to USA Today

She also confirmed that the anecdote about them once visiting Germanotta's old apartment building was true. In addition, Gaga shared what she believed fosters the bond between the two women:

I think what brought them together, truly, is kindness. Glenn has a foundation in support of kindness, and this is something that is so very important to me and my mother with the Born This Way Foundation.
