Throughout the years, several veteran actors have enjoyed late-career renaissances in Hollywood. And given the praise he has earned for his performance in 2018’s A Star Is Born, Sam Elliott appears to be among that number. Perhaps chief among Elliott’s supporters, though, is Bradley Cooper, who delivered an emotional speech at a special ceremony honoring his co-star.
In October 2018 A Star Is Born – Cooper’s directorial debut – was released in theaters across the U.S. The star wasn’t just behind the camera during production, however, as he also took on the lead role of musician Jackson Maine.
