Lady Gaga earned her first-ever Oscar nomination for her role as an unglamorous aspiring singer in A Star Is Born. Yet while it was director and co-star Bradley Cooper who helped Gaga transform into the character of Ally, his very specific vision didn’t always make the process easy for her. In fact, Gaga has revealed that before her screen test, Cooper demanded that she dramatically changed the way she looked.

Gaga and Cooper’s hit movie is not the first time we’ve seen A Star Is Bornon the big screen, of course. The flick is actually a remake of a 1937 film of the same name starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric Marsh. And James Mason, Judy Garland, Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand have also appeared in musical adaptations of the movie in 1954 and 1976.
