Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga had “immediate chemistry” the first time they met. The 43-year-old Oscar nominee and the 32-year-old Grammy winner will star in the A Star Is Born remake. Cooper plays rockstar Jackson Maine who discovers a talented singer named Ally (Gaga).
The decision to co-star in the movie together came shortly after the duo met at her house. “We sat down at the piano at my house and I heard him sing and I remember I stopped playing. I was like, “Oh my gosh, Bradley, you can sing. And then we kept going,” Gaga tells Entertainment Weekly.
“Before we knew it, we were harmonising. And he filmed us doing it. We have a tape of the first time we ever sang together. It’s on my phone,” Cooper shared. “When I look at it now I’m like, ‘Oh my God. How could she say yes? I’m not that good.’”
Talking about their ‘instant chemistry,’ Gaga says, “Before I knew it, I was making him spaghetti and meatballs. It felt right. I was really kind of willing to do anything to show the studio and to show him that I had what it took to play this role.”
