The veteran Hollywood film executive and Oscar-nominated “A Star is Born” producer Bill Gerber has no illusions about what the first questions on students’ lips likely will be Tuesday when he gives a talk Tuesday at Colorado Mountain College in Aspen.
“The first question, I’m sure, will be ‘Did Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have a romance or not?’” he said with a laugh.
Did they? Guess you’ll have to go to find out.
“I like to talk about what people want to talk about,” Gerber said of the event, “and I hope it can be informative.”
Gerber has been coming to Aspen since 1986, when the actor Bruce Willis brought him out for a ski trip. In October 2020 as the pandemic kept Los Angeles shuttered, he rented a home in Aspen’s West End and has been here ever since. [More at: Bill Gerber at CMC Aspen Feb. 22]
