Lady Gaga is closing the book on the rumors surrounding any romantic relationship with her A Star is Born costar Bradley Cooper.
Gaga and Cooper’s Oscars performance of “Shallow” sparked rumors that a steaming hot romance was budding between the two Hollywood heavyweights. In order to crack the case, Elle magazine enlisted the help of the queen of all media—Oprah Winfrey.
In theDecember issue, Winfrey asked Gaga about the romance speculation that followed the intimate duet between the A Star Is Born co-stars. The “Poker Face” singer set the record straight, no chaser.
“Quite frankly, I think the press is very silly,” Gaga confessed.
She said many days of intense rehearsals led to the surprisingly chemistry-filled on-camera performance.
“We worked hard on it,” Gaga said. “We wanted people to believe that we were in love.”
People did. Shortly before the eyebrow-raising duet at the Oscars, Gaga ended her engagement to Christian Carino. The rumors only intensified after Cooper also ended his relationship with Irina Shayk, the mother of his two-year-old daughter, in June.
While eating takeout in his home kitchen, Cooper revealed to Winfrey that he would not have been able to look at Gaga in her eyes at the piano if they had been involved romantically off-camera. He explained his thought process in two words: “Catholic guilt.”
Gaga, who won an Oscar for best original song for “Shallow,” had previously told Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show, “People saw love and, guess what, that’s what we wanted to you to see.”
In spite of all the rumors, Gaga’s memorable performance with Cooper at the Academy Awards—and on the silver screen—was just that, a performance. If you want to see any romance, you’ll just have to watch the movie again and dream.
