Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Talk Friendship, Death and Streisand

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are covering EW’s fall movie preview, in which they talk about their friendship, the day Barbra Streisand came to set of A Star Is Born, and Gaga losing her friend to cancer the day of her big performance scene: “We were supposed to shoot in, like, 30 minutes, and I left the set because her husband called me and I could hear her in the background and I just got in the car and drove. I missed her by 15 minutes and she died. I literally laid with her, with her husband, and their dog, and his son… When I came back, Bradley was so gentle with me and we got through it. I performed the song. He was like, ‘You don’t have to do it again. It’s okay.’ All I ever wanted to do was sing. I’ll never forget that day. It was really a special scene, and I’ll always remember that moment.”
