Their chemistry on-screen was palpable in A Star Is Born. So much so that the world was sure that these two are actually an item and are just being secretive about it as they were each in their own respective relationships. However, now that they are both single again, it begged the question - are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper together? Lady Gaga herself has finally spoken out about the rumors.
"Quite frankly, I think the press is very silly. I mean, we made a love story. For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love," she stated to Elle magazine during her interview for the December 2019 issue. "And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars. We wanted it to go right through the lens of that camera and to every television that it was being watched on."
She continued, "And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out—it was orchestrated as a performance." So how did the performance do? Very well indeed when you consider the fact that they were talked about for the entire award season, and that performance at the Academy Awards? Well, we still think there is more to this than just an act.
Lady Gaga sat down with Oprah for an interview where she spoke about her shift in fashion (we all remember the meat dress). She said, "After doing A Star Is Born, and working with Bradley Cooper, and my experience even with winning an Oscar—I sort of just went to myself, ‘You have a much greater mission on this earth than to freak the hell out of people. Your mission is to give people a form of love through your art that lifts them up."
We will never know if these two were more than just costars, or perhaps one day our wish will come true and they will make it public and official.
