We have been listening to speculations and rumours about the “A Star Is Born” co-stars, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga for months now!
People went nuts about this romantic (and pretty dramatic) movie and were so convinced by their acting on set that they have taken this to another level, wanting those two to get together in real life!
But why is it? Why is it so important for the fans that Gaga and Bradley become an actual couple? Why do they think that there’s anything more between those two – or should be something more?
Is it all because of their on screen chemistry or was the movie so believable that the fans decided that they would actually look good together in real life?
Let’s find out!
A Star Is Born (and a relationship)
So here it is guys! The movie that started everything! All the rumours, all the suspicions!
Everyone went crazy when the movie came out, both Bradley Cooper fans, and Lady Gaga ones!
OK, so for Gaga fanatics it was expected. Their favourite singer finally got her big break and the world was going to enjoy her on the big screen for the first time.
Sure Gaga already had a small acting career in the past few years, but being in the cast of “American Horror Story” for a year wasn’t that huge although the world did get a glimpse of her talent!
“A Star Is Born” was an amazing movie and everyone who got to see it had the exact same thought… That it was Lady Gaga’s story… It was like watching her in the past, without all the extravagant looks and the corky videos… It was her, unveiled…
As for the Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga duo, everyone said that the couple was amazing together and made the story so believable!
Cooper-Gaga Relationship After Film
These guys really hit it off and it was obvious! They became very close friends (is it just that?) and they were seen together many times.
Though rumours started about them having a fling, both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper denied everything and tried to convince us all that they are just friends and nothing more.
No one really bought it though! Not to mention that everyone actually wanted this to happen for some reason!
As if seeing them together in the movie wasn’t enough to spark the rumours about an underlying passion, the two of them also had to work together for the press and promotion of the film “A Star Is Born”! Obviously they both seemed to enjoy each other’s company, maybe a little bit too much, and the chemistry between them was fiery!
Gaga always looked happy (that’s an understatement!) in his arms and Bradley couldn’t stop talking about how proud he was of her! (OK, guys get a room!)
Why Bradley Chose Gaga!
How did it all start though? How did Bradley Cooper take the decision to ask Gaga to star in a movie that he was going to direct? Yeah, that’s right! Those two weren’t chosen by someone else to star in “A Star Is Born”! It was Bradley who chose Gaga to be his partner in this! He was calling the shots!
So did hundreds of well-known actors audition for the part before Bradley reached his decision? Did Gaga go to him for a chance to star in the movie? Or did he watch her performance at American Horror Story and decided that she was the one?
Nop! None of the above! Back in 2016 Bradley Cooper went to one of Lady Gaga’s concerts… And he fell in love with her voice and performance. He actually heard her singing Edith Piaf’s “La Vie En Rose”, a song he also had her sing in the movie thus recreating the time when he first laid eyes on her!
After that, he called her and asked if they could meet so he went to her house where he had her play a song on his piano…and that was it! He talked to her about the movie and then handed her the part!
Gaga Talking About Bradley After Movie Release!
So here it goes. The part that everyone was waiting for..the juicy part! Gaga had a number of interviews before and after the release of the movie and she didn’t hold back her words!
Her eyes would spark whenever she was asked to mention Bradley! She wouldn’t stop talking about him and about the huge chance he gave her. Thanking him for believing in her like no one else did and that the movie was a dream come true for her!
Of course it was Lady! Not only did you get to star in a huge movie, you also met the love of your life and now you can live happily ever after! (OK, so that’s the fans talking…me included!).
When on “The Ellen Show”, Lady Gaga was interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres about the movie and how she hit it off with Bradley. Gaga of course mentioned how many things they have in common, like the fact that they are both Italian and that before she knew it she was heating leftovers in her kitchen and feeding Bradley – that happened on their first meeting! (wow!)
Gaga was also amazed by Cooper’s voice and said that they were both on the piano when Bradley started to sing and she admitted that she “stopped dead in her tracks” when she heard his voice!
Apparently Bradley is amazing for Lady Gaga, whatever he does!
Bradley Talking About Gaga After Movie Release!
“Incredible” and “amazing” are the words mostly used by Bradley to describe Lady Gaga and her acting performance!
Bradley was on several shows to promote the movie as well and when talking about the music in the film he said that he never thought that he would be writing and performing songs and that the only reason he did, was because… Lady Gaga gave him the courage to do that! So apparently it’s also a supportive relationship!
When asked to talk about meeting Gaga, Bradley said that he was “floored” because he had never heard her sing live before and he asked to meet her the next day!
He explained that after talking to her, he realized how kind and generous she was and that after that “That was it! There was no movie without her”! (Well said Bradley!)
During one of his interviews he also mentioned that this experience was life changing for him… why is that Bradley? Was it just because you got to direct the movie? I think not! It was because you got to meet Lady Gaga, wasn’t it?
The Scenario That Made Us Believe!
The chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga was apparent right from the start!
The two of them are seen being in love throughout the movie and the whole story helped convince the fans that there really was something there! But why is that? How did a movie manage to make us think that Gaga and Cooper were the ones falling in love and not Ally and Jack, their characters in the film?
Well, that’s because everyone is still under the impression that this was all about Lady Gaga stripped down to her real self. No make up, no weird hairdos, no extravagant and out of the box outfits! Just her in her everyday life.
And then Bradley Cooper, a more casual look for him too, being a rock star! Seems just like the true story of how those two met! Gaga was trying to get into acting but no one would give her the chance and then Bradley came along, a movie rock star, who was so enchanted by her talent that he immediately wanted to make her a star!
Their first encounter is just like the one in the film, and deep down the fans were hoping that they would fall in love in real life just like they did in the movie!
The falling in love part
Like we said, Bradley Cooper met Gaga back in 2016 when she was performing live at a cancer benefit. Gaga performed “La Vie En Rose”, the famous french song, and Bradley heard her sing live for the first time!
That was it! He thought she was amazing and called her the next day asking to personally meet her. They connected right away, according to both of them, and Bradley knew she was the one for his movie!
Now in the film, Bradley meets Gaga in a drag bar where she sings…”La Vie En Rose”! The look in his eyes when he sees her and hears her sing is to die for and “Jack” gets emotional! We imagine that his reaction was the same in real life!
After that, “Jack” is eager to meet her and goes backstage to ask her out! “Ally” is shocked by what’s happening – why would a rock star want to meet her?- but still agrees to go out with him! Sounds familiar?
The intimate scenes
Two words people!! So believable! The kissing, the hugging, and the…you know what! Everything was so convincing!
The “I love you” and “You’re so amazing” looks, we bought everything! The scenes that show them making out or in bed acting like kids!
Let’s take their first date for example! It would have ended in love making if “Jack” hadn’t passed out from all the drinking! But we also got to see Lady Gaga trying to “prepare” for the act – like literally washing her armpits! Not so romantic, or sexy, I agree! But so realistic!
And then when they actually got together, the passion between those two, the wild kissing like they had been waiting to do that for a while…we really think they had!
All those times he touched her so caringly and the ones he tried to win her over with “Ally” trying not to show her excitement… We think Lady Gaga was trying not to show her excitement too when Bradley was touching her while filming as well.
What a glorious moment! After the movie, the promotion, the interviews..we finally got to see them live on stage together and it was absolutely amazing!
As if seeing Lady Gaga win an Oscar that night for “Shallow” as Best Original Song, wasn’t enough! Gaga got up on stage with Bradley Cooper to sing the song that the entire planet had been chanting for months and the crowd went crazy!
Obviously it wasn’t just because of the song! Their performance, the looks they were giving each other, the love we could witness.. And the chemistry! Everyone was right! That chemistry wasn’t just on set! That thing was real!
We saw Gaga holding her breath and being all emotional and proud while Bradley was singing and then him sitting next to her on the piano, and hugging her waist! What else could we have asked for?
Of course rumours about those two started again, even though Irina Shayk accompanied her partner and baby daddy, Cooper, at the Oscars! No one cared! We only saw the incredible chemistry between those two!
Lady Gaga’s failed relationships!
She’s a star! Of course she can have whoever she wants but that doesn’t really mean it will work!
Truth is, Lady Gaga has had several relationships in the past, some of them pretty serious actually, but something always seemed to get in the way and ruin everything!
But let’s take the most serious and recent ones… Lady Gaga and actor Taylor Kinney met in 2011 while she was filming the video for her song “You And I”. They started dating and the couple fell in love so 3 years later Kinney asked Gaga to marry him and she said the big YES!
However, a year later, and while Gaga was filming “A Star Is Born” with Bradley Cooper (coincidence?) the couple called off their engagement and Gaga was single once again!
Not too long after, Lady started dating 50 year old Hollywood agent, Christian Carino! They both tried to keep their relationship as private as possible but when a year later Carino proposed and Gaga said YES again, word got out!
February 2019 though, after rumours escalating about Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper secretly being in love, the couple broke up and called off their engagement!
The fans went nuts of course, Lady Gaga was now single and everyone was hoping that we would hear from Bradley very soon after!
Bradley Cooper’s failed relationships!
Besides rumours about dating almost every female Hollywood star, like Cameron Diaz or Jennifer Aniston, Bradley only had three relationships worth mentioning!
The first one was with actress Jennifer Esposito which dates back to 2006. The couple actually ended up getting married but then divorced just 4 months later! Obviously we wouldn’t call this a successful relationship, but still since Bradley walked down the aisle with her, why not mention it, right?
Bradley is definitely a hottie, so obviously there would be talk about him “hanging out” with other actresses. But apparently he has a thing for models…enter Suki Waterhouse who he dated for 2 years, until they called it quits in 2015!
A few months later he started dating supermodel Irina Shayk and although both of them were always pretty hush-hush about their relationships, everyone of course found out.
The couple also welcomed their daughter in 2017 but nothing was mentioned about a possible engagement by either one of them!
Irina Shayk is out!
So here’s the thing! Everyone had been going on and on about Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, like there was no other person involved in this! But Irina Shayk is still he’s partner!
Correction, was! That’s right! After months of the film’s fans, and Gaga fans, shouting that those two will get together at one point…Bradley and Irina called it quits this month and the world went crazy about what will happen next!
Although Lady Gaga and Bradley have mentioned quite a few times that nothing romantic is going on between them and that their relationship is strictly platonic, we can’t help but wonder if those two might not have even realized their true feelings for each other!
So here it is… Lady Gaga meets Bradley and breaks up with fiance (actually two fiances since meeting him) and has been single for a few months. Bradley Cooper was in a 4 year relationship with a supermodel and ended things a few days ago!
They might just be friends now, but who knows? Maybe they’ll realize that you don’t easily find that kind of chemistry with someone and finally go from friends to “happily ever after”, thus pleasing the fans that have been rooting for them to get together since the movie premiere!
