Lady Gaga shows skin, thanks Bradley Cooper for challenging her to ‘be Stefani again’

Lady Gaga says that taking the lead role in "A Star Is Born" remake was something that felt right, while also praising director – and co-star – Bradley Cooper's musical talent. (Sept. 24)

Lady Gaga’s flesh – and feelings – were on display Thursday as she paid tribute to Bradley Cooper, her co-star and director from “A Star Is Born.”

The singer-turned-actress sported a champagne, laser-cut halter gown from Azzedine Alaïa that showed a fair share of skin as she and co-star Sam Elliott paid tribute to Cooper at the American Cinematheque Award Presentation in Beverly Hills.

Tearfully, she explained how Cooper had forced her to rediscover her pre-Gaga self, referring to herself by her real name, Stefani Germanotta, a name she hasn’t used professionally for over a decade.

“I ran from Stefani for a long time,” she told Cooper. “I put on a superhero cape and called myself Lady Gaga. You challenged me to deep dive into a place where I had to see her again, be Stefani again.’ “

She told “Entertainment Tonight” that the biggest reward from the entire experience was a “lifetime friendship with someone I deeply respect.”

Though the movie has been out for nearly two months, the two aren’t about to stop walking the red carpet together.

Now that awards season is here, Cooper told the show the two will be “doing it together.”
