Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga: Their performance in Venice was second to none
It is her first major film role and directorial debut: Bradley Cooper (43, "Hangover") and Lady Gaga (32) have presented their film "A Star Is Born" at the Venice International Film Festival. The newcomer and his star also made for the most glamorous appearance. Gaga and Cooper arrived by water taxi.
While he appeared in a classic suit and tie, she was beaming in white. Gaga had opted for an ankle-length robe by Tunisian fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa, whose A-line was playing around the singer's narrow silhouette. To the sleeveless dress she combined black stilettos by Brian Atwood and a black box bag by Mark Cross.
That's what the movie is about
"A Star Is Born" is the remake of the tragic love story from the classic "Ein Stern auf auf" from 1937. In the mix of music film and love drama, a country singer (Cooper) learns a hitherto unsuccessful musician (Lady Gaga) know. He makes her a star and falls in love with her, but her relationship is not a good star. In Germany, the film is scheduled to start on 4 October.
"It was a real exchange," said Lady Gaga at a press conference in Venice, as the industry magazine "Deadline" reported. "He accepted me as an actress and I totally accepted him as a musician." Cooper described shooting with Gaga as "insane." The crew heard her singing "every day, somehow we forgot that we were at work, it starts and the mood in the room changes."
