Cooper is not only the leading man in the new telling of the iconic story – he’s also the director.
“Anytime you’re trying to tell the truth you need to go to places and use things that have happened to you, or you’ve read about or experienced,” he said at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere.
“And that’s all part of the beauty of turning whatever things you’ve gone through into a story. I find that to be very cathartic.
“I remember learning that in grad school, our teacher said all the insecurities, all the dark stuff you get to use that and that’s really the truth.”
A Star Is Born is out on October 5.
