Jennifer Lopez Reveals She & Will Smith Almost Remade ‘A Star Is Born’ First

Published: Tuesday 11th Dec 2018 by Sam

When not blazing stages, Jennifer Lopez is making her mark on the big screen.

This month brings with it the premiere of her newest movie ‘Second Act.’

However, in an interview to promote the film, the diva revealed that she was almost attached to one of the biggest releases of the year, ‘A Star Is Born’ – which ended up being headlined by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. 

Perhaps even more intriguing, she confirmed that Will Smith was set to appear as the male lead.

Details below…

Speaking with Extra, La Lopez said of the would-have-been flick:

“[Will and I] talked about it and talked about developing the script. [But] it just never took off. Projects are like that.”

She went on to add that she was really proud of Cooper for “directing his first film and doing it.”

Elaborating on Gaga, the 49-year-old said:

“We’re friends, and watching Lady Gaga do her thing in the movie, it’s just great. Everything happens in its own divine timing.”

Peep the interview…

Needless to say, ‘A Star Is Born’ most definitely would have been an altogether different production had things panned out with the J.Lo and Will version. Same goes for the Beyonce incarnation that Clint Eastwood was attached to.

Echoing Lopez’s sentiment, everything plays out as it should.

    I love her hustle, confidence, and hard-work ethic. She is constantly re-inventing herself, taking on new projects, and working hard in the gym to stay in shape / youthful looking. A movie is just a movie. Her hustle is what is admirable and what is important here.

    That would have been terrible sorry ?
    And I love them both but they both just don’t have the depth or talent required.
