Barbra Streisand Calls Out Lady Gaga And Bradley Cooper For A Star Is Born

Barbra Streisand Calls Out Lady Gaga And Bradley Cooper For A Star Is Born

Barbra Streisand has taken shots at the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born, despite previously showing her support.

The 79-year-old starred in the 1976 version of the movie and in a 2018 interview, she seemed to be a fan of the new Gaga/Cooper version.

She said: "Of course I've seen it. I loved it. I think it's wonderful. She's wonderful.

"I think it's great. They're gonna have a big hit."

However, in a more recent interview on Australian talk show The Sunday Project, Barbra seemed to change her tone.

The Funny Girl actor said: "At first, when I heard it was going to be done again, it was supposed to be Will Smith and Beyoncé, and I thought, that's interesting.

"Really make it different again, different kind of music, integrated actors. I thought that was a great idea.

"So, I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to the version that I did in 1976."

The interviewer responded: "Well, that's probably a compliment to you?"

The two-time Oscar winner replied: "I don't know, I thought it was the wrong idea. But look, it was a big success. I can't argue with success.

"But I don't care as much about success as I do, originality."

As you can imagine, Twitter was quick to voice their opinion on the 'salty' comments made by Barbra.

One user wrote: "Gaga got her Oscar already so she needs to move around with this lol. Move on."

A second user added: "Stop acting like she was the first person to do it. She can't be talking about originality when she was also in a copy version from the original."

The user is referring to the original version of the film that was released way back in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and ‎Fredric March‎.

This was then followed by a 1954 version starring Judy Garland and James Mason, which makes it odd that Streisand calls out the 2018 film for a lack of originality when her own A Star is Born was the second remake of the movie.

Some agreed with Streisand however, with one user writing: "I would have to agree w her that a Beyoncé and Will Smith it would had been different and prob better movie."
