Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper star in the upcoming movie “A Star Is Born,” which is scheduled for release on October 5.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the singer and actress said that when Cooper (who is also the director) showed her a cut, she “burst into tears.”
“I literally cried watching the whole movie,” Gaga said.
Lady Gaga leads the highly anticipated movie “A Star Is Born,” and said that she got emotional after watching it for the first time.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Oscar-nominated singer opened up about her experience seeing a version of the film, in which she and co-star Bradley Cooper (who also directed the film) play love interests Jackson and Ally.
The actress told EW that Cooper “was so kind” throughout the whole process and was by her side when she saw a cut of “A Star Is Born.”
“He flew to me where I was, and he played it for me and some friends of mine,” she recalled. “I just remember that from the very first frame, I just burst into tears. I literally cried watching the whole movie.”
The 32-year-old added that she “had to watch the film several times before I could watch it as an audience member, if that makes any sense.”
This is the fourth iteration of “A Star Is Born” — the previous versions came out in 1937, 1954, and 1976. In the 2018 version, Gaga’s character is a struggling musician named Ally who doesn’t “feel comfortable” singing her own songs because people have told her that they “liked the way I sounded but that they didn’t like the way I look.” Jackson (Cooper) is an established performer who convinces her to take a chance on herself, as he battles his own personal issues.
