Lady Gaga "confided" in Bradley Cooper before taking the leading role in House of Gucci.
The 35-year-old singer — who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar when she starred alongside Bradley in 2018's A Star is Born — heaped praise on the Hollywood star before revealing that she has "confided" in him for years.
Speaking on Entertainment Weekly's Awardist podcast, she said: "Bradley Cooper really believed in me for the role of Ally Maine in A Star Is Born and the way that he empowered me to take helm of that character as well as take helm of the soundtrack and work with him so closely on a movie about music and a movie about musicians, it really was the success of our artistic collaboration and I think it landed me where I am now. I've confided in Bradley for years and I've always appreciated his support and his advice, his thoughts on my future endeavours."
When asked whether she consulted Bradley about the role of Patrizia Reggiani in Ridley Scott's true-life crime drama House of Gucci, the 'Bad Romance' hitmaker confirmed that she "absolutely" asked for his input.
Her admissions come just a month after Bradley Cooper also spoke highly of Gaga, commenting that she is "charismatic" and "beautiful."
Bradley, whose new film, Guillermo del Toro's Nightmare Alley opens in the US on Fri (Dec 17), told The Hollywood Reporter: "She's just so terribly charismatic and beautiful. When I met her, I thought, 'If I can just harness that … then it's just for me to mess up.' But then, when we started working together, I realized, 'Oh, oh, the sky's the limit in terms of what she's able to do and her commitment level"
