- READ MORE: Pop is Not A Dirty Word: ‘A Star Is Born’ puts Gaga back on top – but why is pop music the film’s villain?
Clint Eastwood was originally connected to the film before Bradley Cooper decided to direct. ‘A Star is Born’ was recently nominated in four categories at the prestigious Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Talking to ExtraTV, the legendary actor and director said: “I thought he [Cooper] did a great job. A lot of things that I wasn’t sure about… like he wanted [Lady Gaga]… I wasn’t sure she was right for it, but I think she is stunning in it.”
‘A Star Is Born’ has been richly acclaimed since its release back in October, with Gaga’s performance as Ally Maine being singled out by plenty of critics and film fans alike as being worthy of the highest praise.
Last week, Madonna took aim at Lady Gaga, suggesting that the singer and actor ripped off one of her quotes during the film’s press tour.
In October, fans picked up on Gaga repeatedly using the same quote as she discussed working with co-star Bradley Cooper on the hit remake. “There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life…” she was heard saying in multiple interviews.
Now, the Queen of Pop – who once labelled Gaga as “reductive” – has suggested that the ‘Poker Face’ artist lifted the line from one of her own 1980s interviews.
Madge posted the vintage clip to her Instagram story, in which she says: “If there are 100 people in a room and 99 say they liked it, I only remember the one person who didn’t.”
