Bradley Cooper finally spoke out about the alleged love story with A Star Is Born costar lady Gaga .
It was clear the co-stars shared a particular connection that, as Gaga revealed, came “the second that I saw him.”
Despite rumors to the contrary, Gaga has long maintained they weren’t actually romantically involved.
“Yes, people saw love and—guess what—that’s what we wanted you to see,” said the singer in 2019. Even their Shallow perfomance at the Oscars was totally planned out: “I knew that he had the vision for how it should go.”

When discussing the Oscar performance of “Shallow,” Bradley confirmed they were definitely acting.
The only reason they looked so in love during the performance was that: “He had conceived the performance to unfold like a scene from the movie in part to help manage his own fears about singing live,” according to the outlet.
As he noted, “They kind of fall in love in that scene in the film. It’s that explosive moment that happens to them on a stage in front of thousands of people…It would have been so weird if we were both on stools facing the audience.”
