As it turns out, Jennifer Lopez and Will Smith were almost the lead actors in A Star is Born.
“Will and I talked about it and talked about developing the script. It just never took off. Projects are like that.”
According to Glamour, the two split from the film around 2013, after which some other high profile names became briefly attached. For one, Clint Eastwood showed interest in the project. Not only that, but he reportedly attempted to get Beyoncé and Leonardo DiCaprio as the leads!
“I’m really proud of Bradley,” Lopez added. “One, for directing his first film… we’re friends, and watching Gaga kind of do her thing in the movie, it’s just great. It’s perfect, just like this movie, everything happens in its own divine timing.”
