Lady Gaga reportedly fell for Bradley Cooper during pre-production and filming creating the intense chemistry
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's racy and sizzling Oscar performance has sparked off rumors and speculation that the couple are more than just friends
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's very intimate rendition of the song 'Shallow' at the Oscars had people speculating in overdrive over a possible affair, so much so that the 'Bad Romance' singer had to address the rumors herself.
However, people were not that off the mark about their crackling chemistry as a source has revealed that 'A Star is Born' director was hoping for some off-screen sparks between himself and Gaga while they were shooting for their film, wishing that it would translate on the screen.
According to Page Six, Cooper "wanted an authentic love story on-screen with his vulnerable" leading lady. The source shared, "Hollywood is buzzing that Gaga fell for Bradley during preproduction and filming, creating the intense emotional energy you see on-screen and at the Oscars."
Given that just a couple of days before the Oscars, Gaga announced that she had broken off her engagement to Christian Carino, her chemistry with Cooper was even more closely scrutinized.
While at the CAA party, Cooper and Gaga seemed "very, very close . . . even though her ex-fiancé [Carino] was there — in the same room — but keeping his distance. Gaga and Bradley were cozied up on a sofa . . . [They] were inseparable, and people definitely thought it was weird."
At the Oscars, Bradley was seen with his mother Gloria Campano and model Irina Shayk with whom he shares daughter Lea De Seine.
Another insider added, "Irina is not happy with all the attention that the performance onstage generated. But she feels confident that nothing ever happened between Gaga and Bradley."
"They had chemistry during the movie shoot. But that’s that. She feels confident in her relationship for now," the source continued.
Lady Gaga appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to explain the situation and also slammed social media commentators who fanned the flames of the affair rumors. She explained that "people saw love, and guess what? That's what we wanted you to see. I mean, this is a love song, 'Shallow'. The movie 'A Star Is Born' - it's a love story. We worked so hard. We worked all week on that performance."
She further added that "I'm an artist, and I guess we did a good job, and - fooled ya!"
Gaga won the Oscar for 'Best Song' but not best actress for 'A Star Is Born'. When she ended up winning the Oscar for her song 'Shallow' along with her co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, she was seen in tears.
The 'Poker Face' singer shared with viewers, "It's not about winning, but it's about not giving up."
Jennifer Hudson was spotted nodded encouragingly to Gaga's speech, mouthing 'Yes,' making sure the moment was captured in the meme hall of fame.
