Despite their repeated insistence that they are just friends, some fans still want Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga to date. Even though their A Star Is Born characters Ally and Jackson are fictional, fans ship the actors together in real life. Fans of the movie and the actors’ chemistry look for any sign the two might be together. Rumors went wild after a photo of Cooper on vacation with someone with platinum blonde hair appeared online. However, it was not Lady Gaga.

Who did Bradley Cooper go to lunch with?

Cooper was spotted in a blurry paparazzi photo in France. Because the person he dined with wore large sunglasses and had blonde hair, A Star Is Born fans assumed he was eating lunch with Lady Gaga. However, it was actually the Irish artist, Guggi. According to the U.K. Sun, they ate lunch at Chateau La Coste. The two were also joined by none other than Bono himself. The U2 frontman is a friend of Guggi and dined with him and Cooper.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are just friends

Throughout the press tour for A Star Is Born and awards season, Lady Gaga and Cooper reiterated they were not together romantically. Just because two people have professional chemistry does not mean they should date. This perhaps is the hardest lesson A Star Is Born fans learned during the film’s promotion. According to reports, the two celebrities have not even spent time together since the Oscars.

After her Oscar performance with Cooper, Lady Gaga appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! When he brought up the dating rumors, Lady Gaga rolled her eyes.

“Yes, people saw love, and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see,” she said. “From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… When you’re singing love songs that’s what you want people to feel.”

Fans of the two being together will just have to watch ‘A Star Is Born’

When A Star Is Born came out, Lady Gaga was engaged to Christian Carino and Cooper was in a relationship with Irina Shayk. Even though Lady Gaga ended her engagement and Cooper and Shayk are no longer together, the two have not started dating. As much as some fans want it to happen, it looks like the pair was telling the truth when they repeatedly said they are just friends.

While this might be hard for some fans to acknowledge, they need to recognize that Cooper and Lady Gaga were just doing their job when they filmed A Star Is Born. Their chemistry speaks to how suited they were for the roles of Ally and Jackson.

The film earned multiple award nominations, and Lady Gaga took home a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award for Best Original Song. A Star Is Born was also Cooper’s directorial debut. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray in February 2019, so fans wanting to see Lady Gaga and Cooper together can just watch the movie again.
