Meanwhile, Gallagher has revealed how he helped Bradley Cooper to become a rock star for his role in A Star is Born.

Bradley Cooper plays Jackson Maine alongside struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga) in the remake of the classic film, and now it's been revealed he had a little help from the former Oasis songsmith.

"He used to say to me, ‘I want to get it right.’ The hardest thing in the world is pretending to be a rock star," Gallagher told Q Magazine.

The Holy Mountain singer added: "For somebody who isn’t a singer or a guitar player he carries that shit fucking well."

Referring to a move in particular which Cooper uses in the film, Gallagher said: “I was like, ‘That is me. That’s my patented fucking move!’”
