My parents brought us to see a star is born and I found out what it was and was like nah that sounds boring, I guess I'll just go watch the venom movie even though I don't really want to see it and then bam. I was obsessed.

Ive heard good things about ASIB but it’s gotten to that point that I’ve heard So Much that it’s completely turned me off to the idea of seeing it lmao


You made a Good Decision and I applaud it 👏🏻


ASK MEME: tell me how you got introduced to Venom, and why you’re a fan!

A STAR IS BORN (2018)

Look, talent comes everywhere, but having something to say and a way to say it so that people listen to it, that’s a whole other bag. And unless you get out and you try to do it, you’ll never know. That’s just the truth. And there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here is to say something so people want to hear. So you got to grab it, and you don’t apologize, and you don’t worry about why they’re listening, or how long they’re going to be listening for, you just tell them what you want to say. Don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you? 

1. Originally, this remake of A Star Is Born was going to be directed by Clint Eastwood and star Beyoncé.

2. Bradley Cooper started writing the script in 2015 while he was wrapping up performances of The Elephant Man on Broadway.

3. Similar to how Jack and Ally meet, one of the first times Cooper and Gaga met was when she was singing “La Vie en Rose” at a cancer benefit — this was the moment Cooper decided to cast her.

4. When Cooper went to Gaga’s house early in the audition process, he made her wipe away all of her makeup, saying that he wanted her to be “completely open. No artifice.”

5. Lady Gaga changed her hair and stopped wearing makeup months before filming started in order to get into character.

6. To get the movie green-lit by Warner Bros., Cooper played executives a recording of him and Gaga singing “Midnight Special” by Creedence Clearwater Revival together.

7. Once Gaga was on board, Cooper finished the script with her in mind. He said, “I asked her so many questions, and wanted to mine so much of the things that she told me. That completely formed the creation of Ally.”

8. Before casting Sam Elliott in the film, Bradley Cooper worked for six months to make his voice sound like Elliott’s.

9. They filmed the entire movie in only 42 days.

10. Cooper based Jackson Maine’s stage persona on Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder. Cooper said, “I went up to Seattle and spent four or five days with him and I asked him 9,000 questions.”

11. One of the choices Cooper made while playing Jack was to have him take his hat off while he’s on stage to show that he’s not hiding behind something up there — Jack also takes his hat off in the garage at the end of the film.

12. Some of the big concert scenes with Jack and Ally were filmed the week between Lady Gaga headlining both weekends of Coachella in 2017.

13. Gaga helped Cooper get a feel for what a real-life concert is like backstage — Gaga was even candid about how drugs are readily available once you become famous.

14. While filming, Gaga and Cooper developed a shorthand. When Cooper wanted Gaga to evoke a feeling of warmth and love he would whisper “Tony” — a nod to Gaga’s close relationship with Tony Bennett.

15. In order to give the film a feeling of authenticity, Cooper casted Gaga’s actual dancers, choreographer, and hair and makeup artists.

16. Lukas Nelson, Willie Nelson’s son, helped co-write a majority of the songs — Cooper approached him about the project after seeing him play guitar at a Neil Young concert.

17. Nelson and his band, Promise of the Real, appear as Jackson and Ally’s band in the film as well.
