Bradley Cooper Wants to Work with Lady Gaga Again & He Has an Idea How

Bradley Cooper wants to relive the magic of A Star Is Born.

The 44-year-old actor-turned-director stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday and revealed that he has a little nugget of an idea that would bring himself and Lady Gaga together again. Sadly, it’s not an alternate ending sequel where Jack and Ally live happily ever after, but it’ll have to do.

DeGeneres, 60, suggested he and Lady Gaga take their show on the road. But instead, Cooper wants to perform the movie live in a one-night-only performance. OK, we’re listening.

“What I thought would be a cool thing to do, maybe one night, would be like a live reading of the script and sing all the songs as we read the script, like at the Hollywood Bowl or something,” he told DeGeneres.

Hey, we’d love to see Cooper reprise his role (and deep spray tan) to play the rough-around-the-edges Jack. And seeing Gaga stripped down and Ally-like IRL would be a delight. The only issue? The movie made us sob and the prospect of doing that in public doesn’t sound super fun.

If Cooper’s idea does come to fruition, it would be only the third time the co-stars have performed live together.

Their first live performance occurred when they sang “Shallow” at Gaga’s Enigma residence show in Las Vegas. The second time was when they belted it out at the 2019 Oscars.

Of his Oscars performance, Cooper said, “I actually wasn’t nervous, because I worked so hard, and Lady Gaga is so supportive. But it was terrifying. Because I’m not a singer and I didn’t sing before this movie, so it was really crazy.”

There can be 100 people in a room and all you need is Bradley Cooper being super humble…
