When host Ellen DeGeneres asked if Cooper, 44, would be interested in touring with Gaga to promote the film’s soundtrack, the star responded curtly.
“I mean, no,” he said, before quickly noting he has something else in mind.
“But what I thought would be a cool thing to do, maybe one night, would be like a live reading of the script and sing all the songs as we read the script, like at the Hollywood Bowl or something,” he continued.
The actor also spoke on his viralOscarsperformance, where he and Gaga, 33, sang their hit song “Shallow” in front of the star-studded audience.
While Cooper admitted stepping on stage at the awards show was “terrifying,” he claims he wasn’t nervous.
“I actually wasn’t nervous, because I just worked so hard … I worked really hard, and Lady Gaga is so supportive. But it was terrifying,” he recalled. “Because I’m not a singer and I didn’t sing before this movie, so it was really crazy. It just shows you if you do work really hard, and you’re with supportive people, then you can do things you never dreamed possible.”
That said, Cooper noted he was worried that if the performance didn’t go well “people would never watch the movie again.”
“It was one of those things where I was like, ‘It has to be great,'” he added.
“And it was,” DeGeneres assured him.
“And it felt great,” Cooper responded to the applause of the audience.
“It was honestly the only moment in the Oscars that I remember,” said DeGeneres. “That’s how powerful it was, it was beautiful … so raw and natural. It was great.”
