Barbra Streisand has given her approval of Lady Gaga’s “A Star Is Born.” In case you didn’t know, Babs starred in her own version of the film in 1976, with Kris Kristofferson in the Bradley Cooper role.
“What I saw of it was very good,” Streisand said. “It’s just it feels reminiscent of mine, but they added some new things which I liked, too. … I’m sure it’ll work.”
“A Star Is Born” has been made many times, and Babs thinks she knows why. “The story works. It worked in 1937. It worked in 1954, it worked in 1976 and it’s going to work in 2018,” she says. “It’s Romeo and Juliet — everyone knows the ending, but they like watching how we get there.”
