  • An unearthed clip of Lady Gaga singing "Shallow" during the A Star is Born table read reveals how mesmerized Bradley Cooper was by her.

  • Bradley and Gaga sparked affair rumors during their press run for the film.

  • Bradley and his longtime girlfriend Irina Shayk later split, but Gaga denied ever having an affair with him.

Okay, we're fully back to the "Shallow" era now, and there are absolutely no complaints here! Just a few days ago, Charlotte Awbery AKA the "Shallow" subway singer finally released her cover, and now, A Star Is Born hive gets to treat ourselves to an unearthed video of Bradley Cooper looking into Lady Gaga's soul. Warning: You will feel feelings after watching this!

Thanks to TikTok account @GagaDaily, we get to see some behind-the-scenes footage of when the ASIB cast did a table read and Gaga belted out "Shallow" as everyone watched in amazement. (ASIB filming wrapped in the summer of 2017, so this video was probably taken a bit before that.)

The clip, which amassed nearly 12 million views, jumps right in with Gaga singing "I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in"—you already know how the rest goes. As the room somehow maintained their chill, Bradley's eyes were fixated on Gaga the entire time. And when she finished, he gave her a little rub/pat on the back as everyone applauded.

Though it looks like Bradley and Gaga had an intense connection in this clip and throughout their time promoting the movie, the "Rain on Me" artist insisted they were never anything more than really great actors and friends. So, uh, if you're still blaming Bradley and Irina Shayk's split on his professional relationship with Gaga, please stop. As a guest on Jimmy Kimmel's show, Gaga said:

"First of all, social media, quite frankly is the toilet of the internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see. This is a love song. The movie 'A Star Is Born' is a love story [...] It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time…Look, I've had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel."

Excuse me while I go click replay for the 10th time because I'm still unable to accept B. Coop and Gaga will probably never date.
