A Star Is Born: How Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Stack Up Against the Previous Casts
A Star Is Born is about to make its fourth debut (over 80 years after the debut of the original), but the story still hasn't changed: a young, talented woman attracts the attention of an established male performer, and as the woman's star starts to rise, the man's own career starts to decline. The plot may be as old as Hollywood itself, but each new remake adds a fresh take to the story to keep it modern. What began as the 1937 tale of a country girl trying to make it in Hollywood then became a musical in 1954, then a rock-and-roll love story in 1976, and finally a 2018 remake with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper that we've been eagerly anticipating since we first saw the trailer. Check out how the characters have evolved since the original film and who has been cast as the bright-eyed ingénue and her mentor over the years.
