It was the coupling of the century, with everyone wondering just really what was going on behind closed doors between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga following their ridiculous chemistry at the Oscars.
They’d just come off the back of filming A Star Is Born – which received countless awards and accolades, but one thing that everyone could talk about was the fact that Gaga was engaged, Cooper was in a relationship with Irina Shayk and the world was CONVINCED they were both having an affair.
While Gaga lifted the lid at the time and basically admitted that they were acting when it came to their chemistry during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres following her Oscar win, she’s since spoken about the ‘romance’ in a new interview for ELLE’s December issue.
Speaking to the publication, Gaga revealed that their plan had been to make the audience truly believe she and Cooper were ‘in love’ the whole time.
“I mean, we made a love story. For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love. And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars.
“We wanted it to go right through the lens of that camera and to every television that it was being watched on. And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out—it was orchestrated as a performance.’
She also admitted that the pair got ‘exactly the reaction they had wanted’, admitting: “It did. In truth, when we talked about it, we went, “Well, I guess we did a good job!”‘
Despite the fact that they both broke things off with their respective partners at the time, the couple have since proven that all along they were just friends, and Gaga has since been spotted with a new man who she seems to be very happy with.
