Lady Gaga, making her debut as a movie actress in "A Star is Born", said on Sunday she was humbled by the role, calling herself "just a girl from NY who couldn't get an audition".
In the film, Gaga plays an aspiring singer named Ally who becomes romantically involved with an ageing country singer Jackson Maine (Cooper).
Below, in two clips respectively titled "Songwriter" and "12 Notes", you can get a sample of Gaga and Cooper's singing in the movie.
Lady Gaga praises director and co-star Bradley Cooper
"I've always wanted to be an actress and this is more than I ever imagined", she told reporters on the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival on Sunday.
Co-stars Sam Elliott, Dave Chappelle and Anthony Ramos, also at the press conference, heaped praise on Cooper for earning their trust on the ambitious production, which includes live performances and original music.
"Ally also, I believe, for me, she suffered from depression at the beginning of the film, not believing in herself and I think that it's important that we guide artists and take care of them on a psychological level as they begin to rise because everything changes".
Sitting down with ET Canada's Cheryl Hickey following the North American premiere of their film at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, the singer-songwriter and Golden Globe victor praises Cooper on his directorial debut.
"I heard his incredible voice instantly and I just stopped dead in my tracks".
"Preparation was the hardest thing", he said. "And I said to him, "You're a musician".
"A Star is Born" lands in theatres October 5. "We had an instant, instant chemistry when we first met and the friendship just grew from there and I had the utmost faith in him that he would just soar, soar making this film".
The movie's concert scenes were shot on the stages of some of the world's biggest music festivals, including Coachella in California and Glastonbury in England.
It's the fourth version of the tragic love story - which has been previously made in 1937, 1954 and most recently in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson - but it shows the corrosive effects of life in the public eye.
