Bradley Cooper and Oprah Really Got Somewhere With This SuperSoul Conversation

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga took on the roles of a lifetime when they chose to remake the classic film 'A Star is Born.' Luckily, their hard work and seemingly natural chemistry paid off and the pair is almost sweeping award season for many categories - except 'Best Director'.

In the preview, Cooper tells Oprah: "The first thing I felt was embarrassment actually. Think about it. I felt embarrassed that I didn't do my part".

"That's the trick, to make something that you believe in", he said.


The much-lauded film was the 44-year-old actor's directorial debut, but he has admitted he felt like he "hadn't done my job" when he wasn't recognised in the Best Director category for the 2019 Academy Awards. It seems the 32-year-old and her co-star Bradley Cooper have chose to split up so they can attend both events.

"I was embarrassed", Cooper said on Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square on Tuesday (Feb. 5). His co-star, Lady Gaga, received a best actress nomination.

The historically press-averse Cooper has stayed mostly quiet on the matter, preferring to sing the praises of his cast members, but, of course, all it took is one conversation with Oprah Winfrey to get him to finally open up.


It's basically the same thing if you ask us...

They include Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay. "If I were you, I'd be feeling some kind of way about it".

However, Cooper went on to admit that, deep down, he knows the awards shouldn't be what matters.


Gaga is confirmed to perform "Shallow" with Bradley Cooper at the Oscars on February 28, but he will not be at the Grammys.
