Bradley Cooper and Lady Gagas strong chemistry in A Star Is Born

and have talked about their "instant connection" since the press tour for "A Star Is Born" began, and they are not overstating their chemistry.
In "A Star Is Born," which marks Cooper's directorial debut, Cooper and Gaga play musicians who meet and fall in love. Cooper is Jackson Maine, a rock star fighting an alcohol and drug addiction, and Gaga is Ally, a struggling singer who's been told she doesn't have the physical appearance to make it.
From the moment Jackson drunkenly walks into a drag bar and witnesses Ally sing "La Vie En Rose," you can feel the electricity between the two. He works his way backstage after she finishes singing and asks if she'll join him for a drink. The two end up in a bar and a supermarket (for a reason I will not spoil here), where Jackson tells Ally she's beautiful. She sings for him, he's impressed, and as he drops her off at her home the next morning, he yells out of the car window so she'll stop and turn, "Hey, I just wanted to take another look at you."
That first night together is a catalyst in their tragic love story. After initially turning down Jackson's offer for Ally to join him onstage, she changes her mind. You can hear Ally's fear when she first joins Jackson onstage for the song "Shallow," as well as the raw emotion portrayed by both artists, which is helped in part by the fact that every song was sung live.

The scene in which they meet was actually inspired by a real experience. Cooper knew he wanted Gaga as his costar after watching her sing at a 2019 concert benefit in Sean Parker's backyard.
"She had her hair slicked back and she sang 'La Vie en Rose,' and I was just … levitating," he . "It shot like a diamond through my brain. I loved the way she moved, the sound of her voice."
He called her agent, set up a meeting, and drove to her home the following day.
"She came down the stairs and we went out to her patio and I saw her eyes, and honestly, it clicked and I went, 'Wow,'" Cooper told Vogue.
Gaga said in the same interview, "The second that I saw him, I was like, 'Have I known you my whole life? It was an instant connection, instant understanding of one another."

Throughout the movie, you can feel the love in every stare, the sadness in every fight, and the heartache in every struggle. Cooper and Gaga's emotions are palpable, and it makes the movie stick with you hours after leaving the theater. It's an impressive feat for a project that is both Gaga's film-acting debut and Cooper's directorial debut.
Watch "A Star Is Born" in theaters starting on Friday to feel the emotion for yourself.
