Beyonce was his first choice, but she was beyond the studio’s budgetary constraints. Gaga tweeted yesterday afternoon (quote) “I’m elated to be directed by & starring with Bradley in #AStarIsBorn He’s a brilliant visionary artist. #AStarIsBornCooperGaga” In the spring, Cooper pitched the movie to Lady Gaga.
