Bradley Cooper's Eyes Are Glued to Lady Gaga in This Rare 'A Star Is Born' Table Read Clip

Gaga singing "Shallow" will never get old.

  • Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga starred in A Star Is Born back in 2018.
  • In a resurfaced clip, Gaga is seen belting out "Shallow," the award-winning song from the movie, during a table read.
  • Bradley's reaction to Gaga's performance had A Star Is Born fans commenting like crazy.
  • Gaga has denied that she and Bradley were more than friends while filming A Star Is Born.

Back in 2018 and early 2019, the entire internet was pretty much convinced that Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga (opens in new tab) were a thing after seeing their chemistry play out in A Star Is Born (opens in new tab). While Gaga vehemently denied (opens in new tab) that there were any romantic flames between them while filming the movie, a resurfaced clip gives fans a glimpse into what their dynamic was really like behind the scenes.

On the TikTok account @GagaDaily (opens in new tab), a video recently emerged of Gaga, Bradley, and other cast members from A Star Is Born seemingly participating in a table read (a.k.a., when actors go through a script together and read their lines aloud). When it came time for Gaga's big crescendo in the song "Shallow," (opens in new tab) the "Stupid Love" singer took it away in grand fashion. After she finished, the room burst into applause and Bradley gave Gaga a reassuring pat on the back.

Not surprisingly, the video blew up on TikTok, having amassed 11.9 million views so far. The clip was then posted to the AfterBuzzTV Instagram account (opens in new tab) where it gained even more traction.

Reacting to the video, many fans were particularly caught up on Bradley's face as Gaga sang "Shallow" to the room. As you can see in the clip above, he stared intently at Gaga the whole time while she sang the award-winning song.

"He's speechless ❤️️," one fan wrote on Instagram. "The way Bradley is looking at her 😍," another remarked. A different fan said, "I wish BC would look at me like that ❤️️."

Now would be a good time to point out again that neither Gaga nor Bradley have ever said they are (or were!) anything more than friends. The two reportedly (opens in new tab) first met back in 2016, when Bradley, who directed the 2018 remake of A Star Is Born, saw Gaga perform Édith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose" at a benefit concert and felt inspired to cast her as Ally.

From there, their friendship blossomed and resulted in red carpet walks (opens in new tab)Bradley making surprise appearances (opens in new tab) at Gaga's Las Vegas residency performances, and, of course, that iconic 2019 Oscars performance of "Shallow."

Despite their connection as friends, Gaga made it crystal clear right after the Oscars that the romance people saw was all just an illusion. "People saw love, and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see," Gaga told Jimmy Kimmel (opens in new tab) in February 2019. "This is a love song, 'Shallow.' The movie A Star Is Born is a love story."

Even still, it'll always be fun to look back at the "love" created between these two.
