Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were both each other’s romantic interests in the film A Star Is Born. The 2018 flick is a romantic musical which showed the two celebrities playing the part of Ally and Jackson. Since there were a lot of rumors about the two dating each other, Cooper is only now getting to addressing them.
Lady Gaga herself stated that she felt an instant connection to Cooper in “the second that I saw him.” That was enough to start a flare of rumors about the two being romantically involved with each other. However, Gaga clarified that that was not the case.
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga both gave a performance of the song “Shallow,” in the Oscars. Gaga appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel in 2019 to explain that the rumors were false. She revealed that the performance was completely choreographed by Cooper in extreme detail, and they only enacted it on stage.
Yes, people saw love and—guess what—that’s what we wanted you to see. I knew that he had the vision for how it should go.
Cooper finally gave his take on the rumors stemming from the Oscars’ performance in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. While he acknowledged the heated passion in his performance, he explained that it was a 100% professional acting. He added that it was a way for him to manage his fear about singing live.
They kind of fall in love in that scene in the film. It’s that explosive moment that happens to them on a stage in front of thousands of people…It would have been so weird if we were both on stools facing the audience.
Gaga also backed up Cooper by stating that it’s quite silly of the press to keep raising rumors out of the 2-year old performance. The popstar is currently busy promotion her upcoming film ‘House of Gucci.’ She stars alongside Adam Driver & Jared Leto in the film inspired by the Gucci family.
