Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have spent the last several weeks promoting their highly anticipated film „A Star Is Born.“
Throughout their press tour, the duo consistently praised each other and spoke of their instant chemistry.
The chemistry was clear on-screen and the film even received an eight-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival.
While you wait to watch the film yourself, take a look at all the best moments between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper while on the press tour for „A Star Is Born.“
Cooper said they bonded over their shared Italian roots.
During the movie’s press conference at the Venice Film Festival, Cooper and Gaga talked about how they bonded over the fact that they both grew up in Italian families.
Cooper said, „I remember when we first met, after 10 minutes we were eating homemade food that she cooked — I love to eat — and that was actually a huge bond that we both came from East Coast Italian-American families. So we had a real synchronicity on that level from our upbringing.“
Gaga said Cooper wanted her to wipe all of her makeup off before her audition.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Gaga talked about how Cooper wanted her to be fresh-faced for her audition. He handed her a makeup wipe and said, „Completely open. No artifice.“
Gaga explained how it boosted her confidence, saying, „It put me right in the place I needed to be, because when my character talks about how ugly she feels — that was real. I’m so insecure. I like to preach, but I don’t always practice what I preach.“
Cooper and Gaga revealed they had developed a sort of shorthand while working together on set.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Cooper used to whisper „Tony“ at Gaga if he wanted to „evoke a feeling of warmth“ because he knows that Gaga and Tony Bennett have such a close relationship. He also reportedly said things like „ninja“ or „assassin“ if he wanted her to focus.
