A Star Is Born was the film of 2018. It was Lady Gaga’s acting debut, accompanied by none other than Bradley Cooper. He was also responsible for directing the film. But Cooper is not really at home in the music world, in which A Star Is Born takes place. That’s why he walked along with Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.
In A Star Is Born we meet the young singer Ally (Lady Gaga). She performs in a bar where country rock singer Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) happens to end up. He is very impressed by her talent and personality and invites her to his next concert.

Ally declines that invitation at first, but eventually decides to board the plane anyway. She is amazed when Jack suddenly starts to sing the song she wrote and played it during their first meeting.
Ally is persuaded, and steps on stage to perform her song with Jack. The two fall hopelessly in love, while Ally’s musical career becomes more and more successful. Jackson on the other hand, is slowly dying from his alcohol and drug addiction.
Bradley Cooper played one of the lead roles A Star Is Born and directed the movie. But he knew nothing about his character’s world. That’s why he enlisted the help of a rock legend, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.
“We hung out together for a few days,” he said during The Howard Stern Show. “He asked me some questions and I told him what I knew. Like “make sure your guitar always covers your crotch” … That way you are always protected when the audience throws something, such as an orange or a tennis ball. “
When the film was finished, Bradley Cooper invited Eddie Vedder to watch it. “On the way there I was thinking of ways to kindly reject him. I wanted to be honest, but how could I do that. So, I was a bit nervous. ”
But those thoughts turned out to be wrong. “When I saw the movie, I was completely blown away.” Eddie Vedder said he was very impressed by the acting performance of Bradley Cooper, his chemistry with Lady Gaga. “I even get goosebumps just thinking about it.”
