About “A Star Is Born”
In “A Star Is Born,” Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fuse their considerable talents to depict
the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life.
Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to
survive.
In this new take on the iconic love story, seven-time Oscar nominee Cooper (“A Star Is Born,”
“American Sniper,” “American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”), made his directorial debut. He
stars alongside multiple award-winning music superstar Gaga, who took home the Oscar for Best
Original Song for “Shallow,” and who was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in her first leading

role in a major motion picture. Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers
and falls in love with struggling artist Ally. She has given up on her dream to become a successful
singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.
The film also stars Andrew Dice Clay (“Blue Jasmine”), with Dave Chappelle (“Chi-Raq”)
and Sam Elliott in his Oscar-nominated performance for Best Supporting Actor.
In addition to playing Ally, Gaga—who also previously earned an Oscar nod for the song “Til
It Happens to You” from the film “The Hunting Ground”—performs original songs in the film with
Cooper, which they wrote with a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell, and newly
minted Oscar winners Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando (Best Original Song,
“Shallow”). The music is original and all vocals for the movie were recorded live during filming.
“A Star Is Born” was produced by Bill Gerber, Jon Peters, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and
Lynette Howell Taylor. Ravi Mehta, Basil Iwanyk, Niija Kuykendall, Sue Kroll, Michael Rapino
and Heather Parry served as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Oscar winner Eric
Roth (“Forrest Gump”) and Bradley Cooper & Will Fetters.
Cooper’s behind-the-scenes team included Oscar-nominated director of photography
Matthew Libatique (“Black Swan”), production designer Karen Murphy (“The Light Between
Oceans”), three-time Oscar-nominated editor Jay Cassidy (“American Hustle,” “Silver Linings
Playbook,” “Into the Wild”), and costume designer Erin Benach (“Loving”).
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents, in association with Live Nation Productions, in association
with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, a Jon Peters/Bill Gerber/Joint Effort Production, “A Star Is
Born.” The film is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is rated R for language
