Lady Gaga received some A-list support from her future A Star is Born director on the set of Saturday Night Live

On Sunday afternoon, the 30-year-old tweeted an adorable photo that shows her posing with actor Bradley Cooper, who is set to helm the upcoming adaptation of A Star is Born with Gaga in the lead role.

“LOOK who came to support me at SNL! What a doll!” Gaga wrote alongside the picture, which she posed for while backstage at Studio 8H in New York City’s Rockefeller Center. “We are so excited for our  #AStarIsBorn Thank you @marcjacobs for my glam gear.” 

As part of her musical guest stint on SNL, Gaga performed two tracks,”A-YO” and “Million Reasons,” from her fifth solo album, Joanne, which was released Friday and is expected to debut atop the Billboard 200 chart next week. 

Gaga will begin filming A Star is Born — Cooper’s feature-length directorial debut — for Warner Bros. next year, with producers Billy Gerber, Jon Peter, Todd Phillips, and Basil Iwanyk. She will reportedly write and record new music for the production in addition to headlining the film’s cast.

A Star is Born follows the rise of a wide-eyed ingénue entering show business under the close watch of an aging, alcoholic film star, whose career quickly dims as hers takes off. Gaga’s role was previously played by stars like Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand in film versions released in 1954 and 1976, respectively.
