"At first, when I heard it was going khổng lồ be done again, it was supposed khổng lồ be Will Smith & Beyonc&#x
E9;, and I thought, that's interesting. Really make it different again, different kind of music, integrated actors, I thought that was a great idea," the 79-year-old singer-actress — who, opposite Kris Kristofferson, previously fronted Frank Pierson's adaptation of the oft-retold story — said during Sunday's episode of Australian talk series The Sunday Project. "So, I was surprised when I saw how alike it was to lớn the version that I did in 1976."

She added that she "thought it was the wrong idea," but that she "can't argue with success" after the Cooper-directed film won Gaga her first Academy Award, received a Best Picture nomination, spawned a No. 1 single in the film's signature tune "Shallow," & grossed $436 million worldwide. Still, she finished, "I don't care so much about success as I vày originality."

Following Streisand's interpretation of the story (which has also been filmed with leads Janet Gaynor & Fredric March in&#x
A0;1937 as well as with Judy Garland and James Mason in&#x
A0;a 1954&#x
A0;version), it took several years to get a modern gestation In June 2011, Clint Eastwood & Leonardo Di
Caprio reportedly eyed Beyonc&#x
E9; for a lead role, & rumors of her casting sustained through 2015. Before that, as far back as 2002, Smith had reportedly courted Jennifer Lopez to star opposite himself in an earlier vision for the story.

Streisand's comments come after both Cooper and Gaga praised Streisand during promotional during the film's release cycle — particularly after the icon visited the phối while the pair filmed scenes.

"She gave us a blessing. Everybody was so excited she was there. We just looked at each other và were like, 'Wow. How are we here right now?'" Cooper previously told, while Gaga added, "She was so, so kind."
