Bradley Cooper has revealed how Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder was unsure that his reboot of A Star Is Born would be a good idea.
The movie is set for release next month. It sees Cooper tipped as an early Oscar contender for his acclaimed performance as rocker Jackson Maine as well as his first time behind the camera. A Star Is Born follows the story of boozing country singer Maine, who falls in love with Ally (Lady Gaga), a talented waitress-cum-singer as their careers head in entirely different directions.
Despite the prospective accolades, it appears that lead singer with Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder had his doubts. Vedder and Cooper hung out in order for the actor to gain inspiration for the movie.
Speaking to Yahoo, Cooper explains, “I went up to Seattle and spent four or five days with him and I asked him 9,000 questions. And he gave me minor, little things that only musicians know about what to do, just aesthetically and the inner workings.”
Despite the muso banter, Vedder wasn’t completely on board with the whole project, “He thought it was crazy I was going to do this movie.” “He was like, ‘What? Bro, don’t do that.’ Cooper concluded that Vedder was “wonderful.”
A Star Is Born is released on October 4.
