Bradley Cooper Banned Lady Gaga From Wearing Make Up In A Star Is Born

There's no doubt that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper wowed fans when they rocked the big screen with the 2018 hit film A Star is Born.

This version of the film saw Cooper making his directorial debut and he knew exactly how he wanted his characters to appear.

He was so dead-set he banned Gaga from wearing make up, it was revealed by the 'Poker Face' singer on The Graham Norton Show on Friday.

Cooper wanted none of the typical Lady Gaga glamour added to her character of Ally, in the film - a thought Gaga actually struggled with.

She said: "I tried to sneak some make-up in, but Bradley wouldn't go for it."

Cooper explained his reasoning for this, saying: "It's how the character is and Lady Gaga is incredible."

During the interview Gaga talked about Cooper 'giving her a chance' saying he was the one person that believed in her.

"Once I heard Bradley sing, I was blown away by him, I was moved by his passion. He may have had to convince other people to have me in the movie but, he didn't have to convince me," explained Gaga (real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).

Along with wowing fans on screen, audience members of Gaga's Vegas show were in for a huge treat when she invited Cooper on to the stage to sing their duet 'Shallow' for her closing number.

Fans went mad for the pair as they performed the film's hit song for the first time live.

One person tweeted: "Tonight I saw Bradley Cooper sing Shallow with Lady Gaga so honestly....I win. I apologise for anyone who wasn't there."

"Petition for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper to actually go on tour together," another responded.

Another post simply read: "Music To my eyes by Bradley Cooper x Lady Gaga."

Thanks to the film, Gaga has been nominated for her first Oscar and has become the first artist to be nominated for Best Actress and Best Original Song in the same year.

A Star is Born is the third remake of the original 1937 flick, having been previously adapted for a 1954 musical starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and a 1976 rock musical with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

Speaking to LADbible last year, Cooper said: "It was one of the great experiences artistically I've ever had, and oddly natural. I had the privilege of working with so many great artists in this film."
