Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's version of 'A Star Is Born' left Barbra Streisand with Mixed Feelings

Barbra Streisand felt Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's version of "A Star Is Born" was the "wrong idea."

"The Sunday Project," an Australian talk show, recently aired an episode, where Barbra shed light on the many film versions of the Hollywood classic.

According to the 79-year-old singer and actress, initially, she thought it would be interesting when she heard "A Star Is Born" will be remade and will possibly star both Beyoncé and Will Smith.

In her opinion, it will be extremely different with different kinds of music and actors in it.

"So, I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to the version that I did in 1976," Barbra explained.

The star added that she thought it was a bad idea, but still praised the movie for generating $436 million worldwide and giving Lady Gaga her first Academy Award.

"I can't argue with success but I don't care so much about success as I do originality," Barbra continued.

The version of "A Star Is Born" starring Barbra and Kris Kristofferson was the third retelling of the hit 1937 film that first starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.

Later, Judy Garland and James Mason made a musical version in 1954, and most recently, Bradley and Lady Gaga made a film version in 2018.
