We first caught wind of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's surprising friendship when they were spotted taking a ride on the actor's motorcycle back in 2016, and once it was announced that they'd be working together in a reboot of A Star Is Born, all eyes were on the unlikely pals. Not only do Bradley and Gaga get along well in real life, but they translated their mutual love and respect for each other onto the big screen as well. In a recent interview with Vogue, Gaga opened up about her "instant connection" with Bradley: "The second that I saw him, I was like, 'Have I known you my whole life?'" she said, adding, "It was an instant connection, instant understanding of one another."
After their press tour for A Star Is Born, we got even more sweet glimpses of their chemistry on the red carpet and in interviews. At the Toronto Film Festival, Bradley got a rise out of the crowd when he adorably helped lift Gaga's intricate veil. And now that award season is upon us, the costars have been cheering each other on and sharing even more emotional moments. We'd be lying if we said we didn't wish these two could date, but alas, they're both in serious relationships. Keep reading to see their best friendship moments so far, and stay tuned for more adorable photos of the two as they take on award season!
