In A Star Is Born, Gaga, 32, plays Ally, a struggling artist who falls in love with seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) and jump-starts her own career. She previously won a Golden Globe for American Horror Story: Hotel.

The “Bad Romance” singer told PEOPLE in September that her friendship with director and costar Cooper, 44, is “what set the tone for this film.”

“He’s such a wonderful person,” she said. “He says it to me in the movie, he says, ‘All you gotta do is trust me.’ I trusted him the whole time. He pulled things out of me that I never thought that I even had.”
