“A Star Is Born” stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s on-screen chemistry is undeniably intense that it’s even reflected in their stage performance of “Shallow” in the recently held Oscars. The intimate performance by Cooper and Gaga raised speculations that the actors’ on-screen romance has transformed into a real-life one, at least that is what fans thought and wished. 

But Cooper and Gaga have no plans of becoming the next Brangelina, at least for the moment. Despite their nose-to-nose “Shallow” performance and heart-warming speech on how the two changed each other’s lives, Cooper and Gaga are only and will only be friends.

Following their Oscar live performance, the actors were bombarded with romance rumors. But the Cooper-Gaga fanfiction was shattered when Marie Claire recently claimed that the actors are living separate lives as close friends.

Gaga also got straight to the point in “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” shutting down once and for all the “inappropriate” rumors about her and Cooper. “Yes, people saw love, and that’s what we wanted you to see,” Gaga answered when asked why there’s such a connection between the two during their performance.

“This is a love song, ‘Shallow;’ the movie, A Star Is Born, it’s a love story,” Gaga explained. “It was so important to us that we were connected the entire time … I’m an artist, and I guess we did a good job — fooled ya!”

After the unforgettable feat for the “A Star Is Born” film at the Oscars, Cooper and Gaga seemed to have been living their own separate lives. They have not seen or communicated with each other post Oscars.

Cooper is reportedly spending more time with girlfriend Irina Shayk and 2-year-old daughter Lea de Seine. The actor has been photographed with the paparazzi several times during his casual nightouts with Shayk, but the actor is intentionally staying out of the spotlight.

On the other hand, Gaga continues to appear in several shows post Oscars. One of her recent public appearance was in “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The singer was also spotted with reality star Lisa Vanderpump for a girl’s nightout in Los Angeles.
