Bradley Cooper Winds Down in Los Angeles After Intimate Oscars Duet with Lady Gaga

Bradley Cooper is finally winding down after the flurry of awards season.

The actor, who was nominated for several Oscars at this year’s show, was spotted out looking casual the day after the ceremony. Cooper, 44, wore a loose blue sweater with gray cargo pants and flip-flops on his outing in Los Angeles.

The low-key look was a striking difference from Sunday night, where he wore a tuxedo as he watched costar Lady Gaga take home an Oscar for Best Original Song. Cooper had one of the most talked about moments at the 2019 Oscars when he took the stage to perform an intimate version of his hit song “Shallow” with Gaga.

While on the Oscars stage Sunday, the on-screen lovers shared a piano bench, singing a stripped-down take on the track cheek-to-cheek before affectionately gazing into each other’s eyes, with Cooper wrapping his arm around Gaga’s waist.

Fans instantly went wild, raving about the clear chemistry between the two. But Gaga stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday and denied any romance rumors. Cooper has been dating Irina Shayk since 2015 and they share 1-year-old daughter Lea De Seine, while Gaga recently ended her engagement to talent agent Christian Carino.

“Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see,” the actress-singer, 32, told host Jimmy Kimmel.

“[Shallow] is a love song, A Star Is Born is a love story,” she explained. “It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel.”

Gaga even pointed out that her connection with Cooper was no different than when she had her “arms wrapped around” duet partner Tony Bennett over the past few years — whom she also clarified never having a romantic relationship with.

“I’m an artist and I guess [Bradley and I] did a good job… fooled ya!” she said with a laugh.

Gaga also highlighted Cooper’s hard work — in addition to directing and producing the film, he also organized every detail of Sunday’s performance — and said she was thrilled to watch the Hollywood community react to him singing live.

“Bradley is a musician,” she said. “My favorite thing about the whole experience — I was so excited for everyone to see him sing live.”

“In that moment when we started and he said ‘Tell me something, girl,’ the audience started cheering and I was like, ‘Yes Bradley! Keep going!’” Gaga supportively added.
