INAll indications are that Barbra Streisand does not share the admiration of critics and fans over the 2018 film “A Star Is Born”, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The artist accused him of lack of originality.
The movie “A Star is Born” was an international success, giving Lady Gaga the first Oscar in her career for the song “Shallow”. Despite being appreciated by the film industry and viewers around the world, the screening failed to win the heart of the music icon Barbra Streisand, who played the main role in the 1976 musical “A Star is Born”. In an interview with the Australian talk show, the 79-year-old artist confessed that in her opinion the third American remake of the musical was not original enough. However, the star appreciated the success he achieved.
“At first, when I found out there was going to be another remake, Will Smith and Beyoncé starring were mentioned. Thought it was interesting. A different kind of music, integrated actors… I thought it was a great idea. So I was surprised to see how the 2018 version was similar to the one I made in 1976. I thought it was a bad idea, but look, the movie was a great success, so I can’t argue with success, but still I don’t care so much about success as it is about originality. “ – she confessed.
Interestingly, in 2018 the star seemed to be delighted with the new version of the film, in which she played the main role herself. In an interview with ET, she praised both Lady Gaga and her partner Bradley Cooper.
“I think Lady Gaga is a great choice. I think Bradley Cooper is a great director and he made a really good movie “ – she marveled then.
