Rob Shuter reports….  Bradley Cooper, fresh from directing and starring in  “A Strar Is Born,” is headed to “RuPaul’s Drag Race!”

The veteran screen tough guy from “American Sniper” and “The A-Team” befriended drag queen Shangela (center) on the set of his musical hit!

“Shangela plays Lady Gaga’s drag mother in the film, and Bradley encouraged her to push the character as far as she wanted,” a pal told The National ENQUIRER.

“Bradley called her ‘honey,’ and she called him ‘Mr. Cooper,’” said the source.

“Now these two are such close friends, Shangela has convinced Bradley to make an appearance on RuPaul’s show!”
