A Star Is Born is directed by Bradley Cooper, following a seasoned musician, Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), with a drinking problem who discovers and falls in love with a young “ no name” singer, Ally ( Lady Gaga). Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight, but even as Ally ‘s career takes off, their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.

Today we ‘re highlighting the best quotes from A Star Is Born:

I’m off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I’m off the deep end. Watch as I dive in. I never meet the ground. Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us. We’re far from the shallow now.

Music is essentially twelve notes between any octave. Twelve notes and the octave repeats. It’s the same story told over and over. All the artist can offer the world is how they see those twelve notes.

Unless you get out there and try to do it, you’ll never know. That’s just the truth. If there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here is to say something so people wanna hear it. So you gotta grab it and you don’t apologize you don’t worry about why they’re listening or how long they’re gonna be listening for. You just tell them what you wanna say.

Look at me. All you got to do is trust me. That’s all you got to do.

Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die.

Jackson Maine: Don’t you understand what I’m trying to tell you?
Ally: Yeah, I do. I don’t like it, but I understand it.
Jackson Maine: Oh I think you like it a little bit.
