“I thought [it] would be a cool thing to do, maybe one night, would be like a live reading of the script and sing all the songs as we read the script, like at the Hollywood Bowl or something,” the 44-year-old said while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, April 25. The actor was responding to the host’s question if he would ever go on tour with the “Poker Face” singer, 33.
“The scariest was the Oscars,” Bradley revealed while on the talk show. “It was pretty terrifying … [but] I wasn’t nervous because I worked so hard. And Lady Gaga’s so supportive.”
“But it was terrifying because I’m not a singer, and I didn’t sing before this movie. So it was really crazy,” he added. “It just shows you, if you work really hard, and you’re with supportive people, that you can do things you never even dreamed possible.”
The Silver Linings Playbook star impressed us all with his pipes, but he also received a ton of kudos from Prince William himself. “Congratulations, great film. I didn’t know you could sing!” the Duke of Cambridge, 36, told Bradley after he won Best Original Music from the movie at the BAFTAs in London. “I didn’t either,” the Oscar winner replied, getting a laugh from Kate Middleton‘s husband.
The father-of-three also praised Gaga’s performance in the drama and asked Bradley if he always had her in mind for the role of Ally. “Not originally,” the American Hustle costar admitted. “But then it was dormant for a while, and I saw her perform and that was it.”
Here’s hoping we see a reunion!
