Lady Gaga cares about Bradley Cooper’s opinion.
While appearing on Entertainment Weekly’s Awardist podcast, the pop star said she sought advice from her friend Bradley Cooper prior to taking on her role in House of Gucci. Gaga explained that after her success acting opposite Cooper in 2018’s A Star Is Born, which he also directed, she’s able to “read lots of scripts and talk to lots of different directors.”
“Bradley Cooper believed in me for the role of Ally Maine in A Star Is Born. It was the success of our artistic collaboration that landed me where I am now,” she said. “I’ve confided in Bradley for years and I’ve always appreciated his support and his advice, his thoughts on my future endeavors.”
Gaga’s performance as Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci has been a great success.
In Gaga’s cover story for The Hollywood Reporter last month, Bradley Cooper praised her work in A Star Is Born.
“She’s just so terribly charismatic and beautiful. When I met her, I thought, ‘If I can just harness that … then it’s just for me to mess up.’ But then, when we started working together, I realized, ‘Oh, oh, the sky’s the limit in terms of what she’s able to do and her commitment level'” he said.
“He’s wildly creative. He’s a true visionary,” she continued, adding of Gucci director Ridley Scott, “And I didn’t know if I could ever meet someone that would believe in me the way that he did, but Ridley did. And Ridley is truly a legend and it’s been an absolute dream to work with him. And I’ve never had a better artistic experience.”
