During the premiere of A Star Is Born, Barbera reminisced about Lady Gaga’s festival debut in 2018. Despite being caught in the rain, both Gaga and Cooper made their way onto the red carpet. However, Barbera revealed that Gaga refused to enter the theater for a surprisingly kind reason. Apparently, she wanted to keep signing autographs for her fans! After getting drenched in the rain, she arrived at Barbera’s office shaking. He asked if she was nervous, but she explained that she simply wanted to ensure that her fans got the attention they deserved. Barbera was amazed by her dedication to her fans, especially since she performs in front of thousands of people during her concerts.

As Lady Gaga stepped out of her car on a windy New York City day, her revealing cut-out dress was lifted by the gusts. According to sources, when asked about her experience as an actress in her debut film A Star Is Born, Gaga humbly replied that she felt like a debutante.

Barbera shared that he had comforted Johansson during the premiere screening of her movie Under the Skin. He recalled how he had put his arm around her shoulder and led her into the theatre. However, the film did not receive a warm reception from the audience, making it the only film to be booed. Johansson was close to tears, but Barbera assured her that the movie would eventually gain recognition. True to his words, the film has now become a cult classic despite its low box office earnings. The movie follows Johansson playing an alien creature who lures in lonely men in Scotland. Its production budget amounted to $13 million, but it only made $6 million worldwide.
