Trivia:
PETA honors Bradley Cooper for casting his own dog in ‘A Star Is Born’.

Lady Gaga convinced Bradley Cooper to sing live as Gaga hated watching movies where the actors were not lip-syncing correctly to the songs, and to avoid this and get it right they needed to sing live for the film. This was what caused Cooper to get more extensive vocal training.

Few scenes of the film were filmed at the Coachella Festival in 2017, where Lady Gaga was the first female headliner in ten years.

Festival-goers paid ten dollars to see the scenes being filmed, although recording devices were locked away to prevent any footage being leaked.

Gaga had to perform the last song "I'll Never Love Again" moments after she found out her best friend, Sonja Durham, had passed away.

"A Star Is Born" premiered at the Venice Film Festival on August 2018, where Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper received an eight-minute standing ovation after the screening.

Bradley Cooper filmed scenes on the Pyramid Stage of Glastonbury festival 2017 just before Kris Kristofferson's live performance.

Bradley Cooper had to fight hard to convince Warner Bros to cast Lady Gaga as Ally in the film.

Bradley Cooper began planning his vision for A Star Is Born" while working as a producer on the 2014 film American Sniper.

After Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga performed a screen test together, impressed with their on-screen chemistry Warner Brothers executives greenlit the project.

During one of Lady Gaga's concerts, microphones were placed around the stadium and fans in attendance were encouraged to chant her character Ally's name for use in the film.

The film's look was inspired by a Metallica concert he saw when he was six years old.

This film marks Bradley Cooper directorial debut.

The scenes at the gas station were filmed in Desert Hot Springs, California, at a small tire shop on Little Morongo Road.

The production was completed over a 42-day shoot.

"A Star Is Born" brings back Bradley Cooper, Greg Grunberg and Ron Rifkin who all starred together in the 2001 TV series Alias.

During her research for the role of Ally, Lady Gaga watched all three prequels.

This film is a remake of the 1937 film of the same name.
