Bradley Cooper and Sam Elliott starred together in Star Is Born, the musical romantic drama film, a remake of the 1937 movie of the same name, produced by Cooper.
Many other Hollywood stars were captured in the movie, including Lady Gaga, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle, etc.
Honoring in Hollywood
While being honored in Hollywood, Sam Elliot was supported by a lot of close people, including A Star Is Born co-stars, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
After around 50 years of a successful acting career, his hands and feet were placed in cement on the Hollywood Boulevard.
Of course, the 74-year-old Sam Elliot was extremely excited to receive such a great honor, which means he is recognized by the whole acting community as a legendary actor.
The touching speech
During the event, Bradley Cooper made a speech, paying tribute to Sam Elliot and telling how much he means for him:
Sam is one of the most talented, generous, humble actors I have ever had the pleasure to work with and acting alongside him was a dream fulfilled for me. In the movie Jack may struggle with telling his brother how he feels about him, I’ve got no problem with telling you Sam just how much I love and admire you. You are my brother.
Such a touching tribute warmed the heart of the legendary actor, and it was impossible not to cry. With tears on his eyes, Sam Elliot told a few words about his legendary co-star and claimed he is a very important person in his life, as well.
Bradley, if you look what’s behind me I think it’s safe to say that the reason I’m here is because of your film. I love you too. You’ve given me a gift. I’ve had a number of gifts over the last few years, there’s no question about it. I’ve had some really nice films come my way and worked with people I have the greatest respect for. I’m not sure I’ve ever had an experience like I had on your film. It touched me in a way that changed my life in some ways, in the most important ways.
Sam Elliot couldn’t hold back his tears while paying tribute to Bradley Cooper, and it was indeed touching and showing they have close friendly relations.
