They say making a movie is like birthing a child, and Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star Is Born, is a full-bodied take on one of the most oft-made films in the Hollywood canon — see also the 1937 original with Janet Gaynor, the 1954 Judy Garland version, and the 1976 rock opus with Barbra Streisand. But Cooper’s will enter the world to the beat of its own drum.

“It all comes down to this broken love story,” Cooper says of the central romance between a fading crooner, Jackson Maine (Cooper), and the talented unknown, Ally (Lady Gaga, credited by her real name, Stefani Germanotta), he takes under his wing. “She’s not an ingenue,” he says, describing the reenvisioned character, whose journey into the limelight breathes joy and heartbreak into the movie’s rock soul, thanks to a soundtrack of original songs Cooper crafted with Germanotta, Mark Ronson, Jason Isbell, and Lukas Nelson.

“[We’re asking]: What happens when you’re 30 and the idea that ‘Maybe I’m not going to make it’ has crept into your artistic brain?” he says. “There’s no better way to express that than through singing because there’s nowhere to hide when you’re singing.” Or a star.

A Star is Born is in theaters on May 18. Read on for EW’s full conversation with Cooper below and check out our exclusive first look photo from the film above.
