Lady Gaga is gearing up for an experience she hasn’t had yet, debuting the first film she’s ever stared in, A Star Is Born. The Bad Romance pop star began acting on television in recent years, most notably she took on a role on Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story miniseries in which she won a Golden Globe for her portrayal.
Most people don’t know that Gaga actually started as an actress at the very beginning of her career before she turned to music.
In this film, she plays a character named Ally, who is discovered by popular, yet troubled rock music superstar Jackson Maine, played by Bradley Cooper.
Gaga’s appearance is completely stripped down for the role. The woman we’re used to seeing in eccentric and eclectic fashions is replaced by a seemingly ordinary girl.
Cooper does triple duty on this film as it’s his directorial debut and he also sings throughout.
The trailer seems to do an excellent job highlighting both their natural acting chops and Gaga’s unique, powerful voice.

Gaga praised the film and Cooper last year while she was working on it and once the trailer was officially released she took to Instagram to thank her co-star and director for believing in her and championing her for this first major movie role.
It’s a dream come true and an honor to be a part of this incredible movie. Bradley Cooper’s ability as a director, actor and musician is astounding. I can’t wait for people to see this authentic, epic, beautiful love story. It’s called “A Star Is Born,” and I’m beyond thrilled for you to meet Jack and Ally. #AStarIsBorn @StarIsBornMovie
Gaga has had a rough year as he had to cut her last tour short due to exasperated health issues.
She was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia which is a pain condition.
Due to her being in really debilitating amounts of pain, putting on a two-hour show a few nights a week just wasn’t feasible for her body.
While she did attempt to come back and finish out the tour, her doctors advised her that canceling it and resting was really the best thing for her.
Gaga has had immense success in the music world and now seems to be pivoting to her first love, acting.
