Leave it to food to bring people together. Though it’s true that Hollywood is a relatively small place and many famous people know each other before ever sharing the screen, sometimes a tasty meal or scrumptious dish is the key to establishing strong connections with one another.
Take, for example, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Though Cooper acknowledged seeing his A Star Is Born costar in passing several times before casting her in the Oscar-winning film, the pair’s bond was solidified thanks to a bowl of leftover pasta. “I was hungry, she made me food,” Cooper told Conan O’Brien when asked about his early meetings with the “Alejandro” singer. He later said that Gaga’s meal made him feel “comfortable.”
For other costars, such as the cast of the HBO show Camping, sharing food can be a great way to pass the time on set. In fact, when Jennifer Garner made some blueberry buckle cake for her coworkers, series cocreator Lena Dunham took a break from her duties and posted several Instagram Stories explaining how impressed she was by Garner’s creation. “Jen Garner knocked it out of the f—king park. It’s so crumbly,” declared the Tiny Furniture star. “It’s right for the morning and the afternoon.”
