Aside from his legendary mustache, Sam Elliott is, perhaps, best known for his deep velvety voice. Adored by women and regarded with respect by men, it can be easily called the manliest voice of Hollywood.

Elliott's voice is so iconic, it almost doesn't matter what he says, as long as we can hear those enchanting sounds coming from his mouth. Famous TV host Stephen Colbert is well aware of that fact, which is why he decided to do a funny bit with the actor reciting Lady Gaga's most famous songs in his unique timbre.

Sam Elliot's twist on famous pop songs

While promoting his new film A Star Is Born (2018) with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, Sam Elliot stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The host kept admiring Elliott's voice and asked him to give some of Lady Gaga's songs "the Sam Elliott treatment."

Sam agreed, but once he saw the words he was supposed to say, he slightly covered his face, terrified of what's to come. The audience could barely hold it together while Elliott uttered such lines as (starting around 4:40-minute mark):

Don't be a drag, just be a queen...Gaga, ooh-la-la.

The actor kept his face straight until the last line, but you can just feel the secondhand embarrassment. 

He's a real champ for doing that and providing us with a great laugh. But this shows anything sounds masculine when spoken with Elliott's buttery voice.

Why you need to see 'A Star Is Born'

Most people in the world were excited about A Star Is Born mostly due to Lady Gaga's powerful performances. But while she was incredible in the movie, we couldn't help but admire every second as Sam Elliott's on the screen.

Even Gaga herself was completely infatuated with his charm.

And we thought we couldn't love him more!
