Actor Bradley Cooper says movies have been a huge influence in his life, sometimes healing him and sometimes providing him the energy to go on.

"I always felt like I wanted to direct movies. Movies are a huge part of my life as a kid healing me, energizing me, inspiring me but you can't choose the moves that I have at the point of making the movie," Cooper said in a statement to IANS.

The project is based on the 1937 film by the same name, which was directed by William Wellmam. The story centres on a fading movie star who helps an aspiring actress while his own career spirals downward.

In the film, he said: "I knew I wanted to tell a love story and I thought music can be involved. There is no pure way of communicating than singing as you can hide. It is just like a series of events, images, sounds and compositions but eventually they started to add up and I thought well this is the one but I knew I needed the engine and the fuel and that was Lady Gaga."
