"I'm at least glad you said that, because if I were you, I would be feeling some kind of way about it", Winfrey said. To date, "A Star Is Born" has racked up $417.4M at the global box office.
The 44-year-old actor not only starred in the critically acclaimed drama opposite Lady Gaga, but he also directed the movie, so he somehow feels like he let the cast down. "I was with my friend at a coffee shop in New York City, and I looked down at my phone, and Nicole [Caruso, Cooper's publicist] had texted me congratulations on these other things but didn't tell me the bad news".
However, for an upcoming episode of 'Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations, ' the actor opens up about the day he found out the bittersweet news.
"I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn't done my job", he elaborated. 'Cause some people have asked me: It must have been hard to go to those places?
"You never know what's going to happen". The stars' duet, "Shallow", was nominated for best original song. It's not yet known what Gaga will sing at music's biggest night, but Deadline confirms she will hit the stage. "It was the best direction".
While we'll be missing out on the duet we're looking for, hopefully, the actor comes home with some hardware, after being snubbed by the Academy for a director nomination, something Cooper admitted to Oprah Winfrey recently he was "embarrassed" about.
