Bradley Cooper recently shocked the world with his hidden talent of singing and guitar playing in his latest acting role as Jackson Maine in A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga. Cooper was on the Bobby Bones Show to share his thoughts since the movie debuted at theaters on October 5th.
Cooper shared that "it's a relief people are liking [the movie]." He has loved music since he was a kid, but never took up instruments or singing professionally or took any lessons. Cooper spent time with Eddie Vedder to prepare for the role of Jackson Maine, but he never geeked out over the time spent with him. He prepped for two years for A Star Is Born, making the total process of preparation, filming and premiere 4 years total. Though, the movie itself was only a 42-day shoot and on a strict budget.
The filming began after Bradley Cooper saw Lady Gaga perform live at an event and it blew him away. He wanted her on the movie, but before asking her, they sang together at her house to make sure the chemistry was there. Oddly enough, it was, so they shook hands and she agreed to be a part of the movie as the struggling artist Ally.
Cooper says that he's seen the movie thousands of times now and he can quote every single line.
