Gaga also recalled the support filmmaker Bradley Cooper gave her at the dawn of her acting career, she said, "Bradley was the first filmmaker who believed in me for a starring role in a movie and I will always value his opinion. When I talked to him about this role [Patrizia Reggiani] he was extremely supportive. He's honest and insightful, he has a clarity about him that is really magic for him as an actor and as a producer. I think he's phenomenal in Guillermo del Toro's Nightmare Alley. I wouldn't have asked anybody else about this movie except Ridley of course"
