Philadelphia native Bradley Cooper appeared on the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Thursday night and talked "A Star Is Born" and performing with Lady Gaga.
Cooper didn't attend the Grammys since he was in London for the BAFTA ceremonies, and because Cooper missed his first Grammy win Colbert decided to present him with one of his.
As the two discussed "A Star is Born," the Philadelphian showed his appreciation to Colbert, thanking him for a review he gave at the National Board Review. “For someone like you to come out and talk about a movie so favorably and explain why it moved you meant so much to me. So, I really want to thank you for that ‘cause not everybody does that.”
He talks about the Jackson Mane voice and performing with Lady Gaga in Las Vegas three weeks ago. He notes on his duet, “So, I went up there and sang it, and I just look like this, sort of, you know, idiot from Philadelphia that’s singing with Lady Gaga. Luckily, I was on pitch - thank god.”
“Speaking of the idiot from Philadelphia, you know, singing,” the host notes, “You’re going to be singing at the Oscars with Lady Gaga. Are you nervous about that? Or are you ready to get your Jackson Mane back on?”
“You know, he’s gone, I'm not going to try to get him back, but I will be me singing."
