AceShowbiz - Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson proved that their chemistry is as strong as that of Lady GaGa and Bradley Cooper. The "Captain Marvel" co-stars recreated the "A Star Is Born" on-screen couple's intimate Oscars performance when stopping by "The Jonathan Ross Show" for its Friday, March 1 episode.
It all began as Jonathan Ross pointed out Larson's musical endeavor in the past by launching her album "Finally Out of P.E." in 2005. Initially reluctant, she was asked to show her singing skills for an "audition" in front of "The Voice UK" judges Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am.
While J-Hud was impressed by the "Room" actress' vocal chops, Ross wasn't so. Jackson then helped out his co-star by launching into a rendition of "Shallow", and Larson followed suit. Looking brooding, the Nick Fury depicter got cozy to his co-star by resting his head on her shoulder. Larson sang the song's chorus dramatically, though she admitted that she didn't remember the rest of the lyrics.
In the end, the Oscar-winning actress managed to earn approval from Ross. Jackson, meanwhile, was still immersed in his performance and continued singing the song.
Twitter users have reacted to Larson and Jackson's duet, mostly praising them for bringing laughter with their hilarious parody. "@brielarson and @SamuelLJackson deserve a #GRAMMYs award just for this video alone," one enthused.
"Holy s**t," another commented, "Legendary." One user posted a clip of their performance and wrote along with it, "the music industry ain't ready for this duo." Another similarly reacted, "This was excellent. Hilarious. What a pair!!!"
Larson and Jackson share screen in "Captain Marvel", which will hit U.S. theaters on March 8.
GaGa and Cooper's steamy duet at the 2019 Academy Awards fueled romance rumors between them, but the "Born This Way" songstress has denied it. "First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet and what it's done to pop culture is abysmal," she said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Insisting that it was just acting, she added, "I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!"
