Bradley Cooper denies casting in Beyoncé's 'A Star is Born'

By
Bradley Cooper has denied that he will star with Beyoncé in director Clint Eastwood's A Star is Born remake.

Cooper was rumoured in August to be in talks to play a mentor-turned-love interest for Beyoncé's rising music star in the upcoming movie.

The actor downplayed the likelihood of his casting in A Star is Born at the Hollywood premiere of his new film The Worlds.

"[It was] just a rumour," Cooper told E! News.

Cooper further explained that while he believes Eastwood is "one of the best directors alive", he's not sure the project is a good idea.

"There are like three versions already [of A Star is Born]," he noted.

The original A Star is Born was released in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and Frederic March.

A 1954 remake paired Judy Garland and James Mason, with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson updating A Star is Born 22 years later.

Beyoncé confirmed her casting in Eastwood's A Star is Born last summer, saying at the time that she was "so honoured" to win the starring role.
