Jennifer Lopez & Will Smith Almost Starred in 'A Star Is Born!'

Jennifer Lopez and Will Smith almost took on the lead roles in the A Star Is Born remake instead of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga!

The 49-year-old “El Anillo” singer opened up about the story during a new interview with Extra.

Will and I talked about it, talked about developing the script,” Jennifer said. “It just never… projects are like that.”

“I’m really proud of Bradley, one, for directing his first film,” she added. “We’re friends, and watching Gaga do her thing in the movie, it’s just great. It’s perfect. It happened. Just like this movie. Everything happens in its own divine timing.”

    Could you imagine this untalented hack? Seriously why is she even bringing this up? Seems like she’s a bit jealous of Gaga’s success.

    That’s probably what it is. I don’t know if she was first choice but she was definitely up for it before GaGa. It was posted on a blind site when they were first talking about it being made what seemed liked forever ago. She had been offered Star and Class Act at the same time but picked CA instead. She knew it would be crap but her reasoning was she would still get money and wouldn’t have to travel as she loves getting money for doing the least amount of work possible. I guess she regretted it in the end.
