Bradley Cooper has praised the star of his directorial debut, where he had three years to work.
Actor Bradley Cooper, who is working on his directorial debut, calls the star of his film A Star is Born Lady Gaga a “revelation”. The Oscar-nominated actor shared his opinions about the acting talent of the pop superstar during a carrièrediscussie with Robert De Niro at a film festival in New York.
The film is based on a classic musicaldrama, which was released with Janet Gaynor in 1937. The story is about a woman that the singer wants to be and that Hollywood moves. There she is discovered by an alcoholic actor. In 1954, a remake was released with Judy Garland in the lead role, and in 1976 took Barbra Streisand to the role. “I knew this story had to make. Whether it goes wrong or not, I knew I had to try,” he told Cooper. “I don’t want to say much because maybe hate you the movie, but I am fond of it. It is exactly as I wanted movie make.”
Cooper and Lady Gaga made an appointment when she started filming. “They told me immediately that this is a barter. She said that to me trusted to be an honest act from her to pick up, because she’d never had a starring role in a film. And they would take me to a real musician, because all will live to be sung.”
Cooper thanked De Niro and director David O. Russell for helping with the final cut of the film.
A Star is Born is expected to arrive on 18 October.
