Anthony Ramos Blew Bradley Cooper Away With One Of A Star Is Born's Most Difficult Scenes
After 2018's "A Star Is Born" dropped, everyone seemed to have Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga fever, but a big part of the movie’s success was also its excellent supporting cast that included Anthony Ramos. The young actor was appearing in just his third film and gave a great performance as Ramon, Ally Maine’s (Gaga) friend.
In 2020, Cooper and Ramos sat down to chat about "the Fallacy of Stardom" with Interview Magazine, where Cooper revealed Ramos was the only actor in the movie that he hired on the basis of an audition tape. He also praised his work in a tricky scene that involved Ramos and Gaga in a bathroom at the Chateau Marmont.
Cooper said, "The thing that made me think, 'Oh, s***, this guy's going all the way," was when I asked you, "When she gets up, if you could block her, so that when she turns, we reveal her dress and her whole look, so that you actually become the curtain?" [...] You did it perfectly, instinctually. I was jumping up and down. I think I ran
in and hugged you."
