Lady Gaga Gave Bradley Cooper A Makeup Drag Tutorial
Gaga gave her 'A Star Is Born' co-star a few tips to create some makeup drag looks.
Lady Gaga gave co-star Bradley Cooper a masterclass in drag makeup during the filming of A Star Is Born.
The film features Cooper as Jackson Main -- a veteran singer struggling with alcoholism-- who stumbles upon the talents of Ally (Lady Gaga) in an LA drag bar.
The musical movie’s opening scene shows Ally belting out La Vie En Rose –- sporting Edith Piaf’s signature powder white face and penciled on brows.
Apparently, Cooper –- who is also the film’s director -- was fascinated by the transformation process, Vulture reports.
“It was so wonderful, Bradley’s curiosity about drag makeup,” Gaga said.

“I remember having a whole conversation with him about soaping the brow, how you get the eyebrow to stay down. You pat it with powder and then you can’t see it. All of these little details.”
The scene also features Ru Paul’s Drag Race alumni Willam, and Shangela – who plays the bar owner and Gaga’s “drag mother”.
Cooper said meeting the drag superstars meant “the possibilities became endless of what we could do in this space. It was so exciting.”
Lady Gaga was a guest judge on the ninth season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race – where she fooled contestants into thinking she was a Gaga impersonator.
Cooper-- who apparently "experiments" with his eyebrows in the new film -- says he's previously tried out a drag persona with pal Amy Poehler.
“I do have to say — I just thought of it — one Halloween [with] Amy Poehler, I went in drag," he said.
"I remember walking around New York City, and I was like Oh, I feel like a woman," he told Vulture.
"But it was hard to find shoes that fit [size] 13. I needed more prep time. My friend had this incredible wig, so I just took her wig.”
A Star Is Born opens in cinemas on October 4.
