Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga bond over Italian roots

Washington: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, in a recent press conference at the Venice Film Festival, said they bonded over their shared Italian roots on the sets of ‘A Star is Born’.

According to a report by Variety, Cooper admitted that he did not know Lady Gaga was Italian and said their East Coast Italian-American families were a huge part of their bond. He also confessed that he fell in love with her face and eyes.

Talking about Cooper, Gaga said that she needed to show her vulnerability to play Ally’s character and Bradley made her comfortable on the sets.

The American singer-songwriter said that the story is about love and what Bradley refers to as the human plight of addiction.

Cooper also said that if Warner Brothers allowed him to continue to tell these stories, he would like to do it again.

Directed by Cooper, ‘A Star Is Born’ is scheduled to hit the theaters on October 5.
