A Star Is Born? Excited TV Host 'Auditions' for Bradley Cooper During Interview
Cooper, 43, chatted with Alison Hammond of ITV’s This Morning as he promoted his new film, which he directed and stars in. Hammond, a former British Big Brother contestant, is famous for creating awkwardly funny moments with stars.
“I have a little bone to pick with you,” Hammond told Cooper. “The last time that you did say you’d cast me in one of your films when you started directing, it didn’t happen. Was there a problem with your phone, maybe?”
“No, no, no. We need to find the right role that merits your abilities,” he told her.
As Hammond treated him to a T-shirt she made for him with her face on it, she also threw him for a loop when she began to sing for him.
As Cooper kept up a stoic face, she crooned, “Can you feel it? Oh tell me, can you feel it? Can you feel it? Can you feel it? When your body’s lying to mine, senses tingling right through my spine. Boy, I tell ya, it could blow my mind. Can you feel it? Can you feel it?”
Cooper clapped and encouraged the others in the room to applaud as well when the verse ended.
“Do you think it could work?” Hammond asked.
“There’s a lot of promise there. You just blew my mind,” Cooper quipped. “I could have watched that for much longer.”

“Really?” she replied. “Second verse.”
Cooper started to laugh. Hammond got right back into the rhythm as she sang, “In the morning when you’re feeling fine, ’cause we be loving all through the night. Boy, I tell ya, it could blow your mind.”
She asked him, “Did you feel that, Bradley?”
Laughing, he said, “I did, yeah. When did you write that?”
“Yesterday morning!” Hammond said as both broke into laughter.
A Star Is Born is out Friday.
