"I don't know that I've ever had a closer artistic friendship with someone as I do with Bradley," multiple Grammy-winner Gaga declared in Toronto on Sunday, during a TIFF press conference for the film.

"This entire experience was life-changing. I have never had an artistic experience like this before."

Bradley Cooper, a music fan and Metallica devotee and considered one of the sexiest men in Hollywood, spent years developing the film, learned guitar and piano for A Star Is Born. This is his first venture as a director. 

The film is a remake of the 1954 musical drama film, A Star Is Born starring the iconic Judy Garland and James Mason.

Cooper tweeted, "It's one thing to sing in the shower. It's another thing to sing in front of 20,000 people."

Gaga- referred to by her real name Stefani (Germanotta) by her co-stars- also created "harmony" with all of the other songwriters who wrote for the movie, including Jason Isbell, Mark Ronson and Lukas Nelson.

She (Gaga) kept the bar high, music-wise, Cooper said.

"It all had to be up to her level... Stefani was very adamant about it," he explained.

"It's one thing to sing in the shower. It's another thing to sing in front of 20,000 people."
