for one of the most anticipated movies of the year please welcome to the one
bornwhat hey guys good morning cold here with all the people no this is different isn't it great reaction from people? I have to tell you that I saw this. I will remember this movie. I will remember the experience of sitting there. It took you a long time to put this into the movie and it doesn't mean it took you a little longer. make it happen i think so i think every time you put your whole heart into something and you get amazing people like him to give it their all and take the time to do it feels so rewarding it should be sam you the one man you the man this time it's different I think I'm going to leave it all at his Bradley feet you know it was a special trip where you know everyone was together and Bradley set a tone that allowed us all to trust him .
There's a moment in the movie where he talks to Gaga about trusting him and he talked to us about trusting him and I think when he can trust the director and trust his fellow actors, he's likely to get to the truth and I think it's because of we know that this very special movie Lady Gaga. about her celibacy in the month, oh my gosh but also my friend you're singing you're singing we've got a little bit of black eyes let's have a minute you want to hear Bradley Cooper wasn't a part of this. big shit yeah that was crazy stagecoach jamie johnson let us go on and willie nelson let us go on before him and that was it we jumped up on stage and i said hey everybody let's shoot a movie it's all about you thank you and then absolutely terrified we were all terrified the whole team at but no one had ever done that before but we were working as a big group and we knew what we wanted and you know the promise of the real is the jackson band lucas tells his band it was amazing and we had a blast but again it's what you said it's just I think because of all the preparation all the time that I had you know that really allowed us to let it go once we were there but the preparation but I mean during this time, I mean you're directing you're
starring in co-writing the script and every other baby chuckling all I mean when you say that sounds overwhelming but when you're more on that yeah and honestly when you're around people like him, who they are, they're giving it their all every day, I mean, I don't know, it was a joy, I mean, those 42 days of shooting were only 42, I want everyone look a little because I tell you that we know. about your relationship with Lady Gaga's character but this relationship on screen you are a rock star and hard of hearing he plays your older brother who is also your manager and is doing his best to take care of you let's take a look I told you that I can't use those things, but I do.

sam elliott on why bradley cooper s voice convinced him to do a star is born...
That's in my head and I need to be here with everyone else. How the doc says is the only way to handle this. Yeah, you're not getting back what you lost. It's the only way we can handle it. You still have. I think we're managing pretty well, what do you want me to do? Do you know that doors open wide? like you sam i never met
bradleybefore this encounter in this movie and i went to meet him at his house one night it took us a while to get together but we finally got together and one of the first things he put on me a ribbon?
He was working with a
voicecoach that he had been doing for several months. I think he said this would sound a little weird and it sounded a little weird because he's beautiful he sounds very very like the man but I knew I guess I knew then that he wanted me to do this project because he had gone to my
voiceand every time he you know someone really wants you to come along on the journey it's just that that's what makes it special that's what makes it a love relationship in the end you would have thought they all knew each other for years watching them together on screen and also the whole cast i mean dave chappelle i mean he came on screen on my badge oh yeah he's beautiful we had anthony here yeah he's the most you know i think that's a testament to i think certainly what this movie was trying to say was if we really see each other and are together we can achieve our dreams and you know yeah we don't know each other but we're both wide open on that day in the movie and when that happens that human connection, yeah it just can't It's just pretending it's real and then luckily we were able to capture that on film but to me it's what makes me happy in the fact that you know we're stronger together than alone it's so moving it was just all the performances there is this social a completely new take on a classic story that gives it extra challenges you know i really wanted to tell a love story and i want to tell the story of people finding their voice in life and how hard it is especially nowadays when people it says who you are and what you should be saying and what your value is and this, it was very personal in that sense and I think it meant that to all of us so I never really thought in terms of what came before it felt like it was very clear to me In terms of the story that I wanted to tell, actually, it was just joyous to be able to pay homage to the other movies and a bit cinematic. moments where we're all aware you know it's a new take like a difference when you approach sam it was no different for me she just had a piece of paper with a few words on her and another guy orchestrating the whole thing so I can't believe that it was your debut.
As a director, I mean you let the movie breathe, can you let the audience breathe too? That was your intention, absolutely yes. over the years so I think just being a student of that and people like David or Russell and Clint Eastwood being so open about their process and it's all rhythm too, you know, in a love story it should breathe because you have to watch them fall in love not you can just erase that real quick, well you, you, you, you believe it, you don't leave it on the screen, you really do and Sam, I mean the whole cast, like I said, it's a movie you watch to begin with. and you remember and you talk and the people I was watching it with we went out in the lobby and we can't stop talking about it so bless you thank you we need a movie to shake it up thank you we appreciate you being here stars Morin hits theaters on Friday
