What a pleasure to hear soothing words from our president-elect Joe Biden.
Soothing words that lift our spirits up, not words that drag us down into the depths of despair.
Trump shows you who he is- his silence is deafening.
He has no words of truth or compassion because he is only interested in himself and his need for revenge and retaliation.
The people voted in droves this year to make their voices heard. And we welcome this thanksgiving as … Read more »

Don’t assume anything is active, because it may be inactive!

We can’t trust Trump with this election knowing how he is conniving to steal it!

I first met Cis Corman in acting class when I was 16! She was 32 and had four children. She remained my best friend and surrogate mother since then. I treasured our lifelong friendship, her intelligence, her taste, and her integrity. I loved Cis dearly and will miss her forever. She was also Auntie Cis to my son Jason.
 
Cis cast our first film for Barwood Films, Up the Sandbox. Cis went on to become a pre-eminent casting director

In times of crises, we join together as one nation indivisible.  We salute our true heroes – the doctors, nurses, scientists, clinicians, pharmacists, food workers and every first responder who compromises their own safety and well-being to ensure ours.

This pandemic has the potential to bring out the best in us — not only as citizens of the United States, but as a global community with a common goal.

Sadly, a lack of leadership compounds the fear and confusion we … Read more »

I am profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding I caused by not choosing my words more carefully about Michael Jackson and his victims, because the words as printed do not reflect my true feelings. I didn’t mean to dismiss the trauma these boys experienced in any way. Like all survivors of sexual assault, they will have to carry this for the rest of their lives. I feel deep remorse and I hope that James and Wade know that I … Read more »

And many thanks to UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability for this wonderful award. I am humbled and honored.

Democracy Is Dying, Starting in Portland

​Reports confirm that law abiding American citizens are being plucked off the streets of Portland, Oregon, by otherwise unidentified groups of men wearing camouflage clothing, carrying weapons, and cruising in unmarked combat vehicles.

​The same reports identify these vigilantes as troops from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and security services under the control of the Department of Homeland Security.  The acting deputy secretary of DHS, Ken Cuccinelli, stated what many immediately believed, that this … Read more »

Whenever I hear white Americans say “my family had nothing to do with slavery so why should I apologize” I think of Willy Brandt.

Willy Brandt was Germany’s Chancellor from 1969 to 1974. In 1970, he made an historic visit to Poland. Brandt came to the site of the Warsaw Ghetto—an open-air walled prison where the Nazis forced Jews to live before “liquidating” it in 1943. Brandt came to acknowledge Germany’s culpability in the

Firstly, I hope this email finds you in good health as we navigate life through this global COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
I am writing today regarding the racial injustices that have been brought to the nation’s forefront in the wake of the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Tony McDade. I am sure that many of you, like I am, are devastated by their deaths and the systemic racism that their killings reveal. At the

It’s always upsetting when my words are taken out of context.

Here is the truth. When I started working on my 1976 movie, A Star is Born, I tried to get my friend Sydney Pollack to direct it. I hired Frank Pierson to rewrite the screenplay, but then he told me he wouldn’t do a second draft unless he also directed the film. And since Sydney was unavailable and we had to start shooting, I had to agree to … Read more »

I cloned Sammie once when she died… yet I keep hearing I cloned her two times. You can get a litter of puppies from one cloning… and that’s what we got. I also read that I cloned her in Korea… also untrue. It was in the USA. The cost was half of what they say!

I explained my reasons in this article which I feel I must share again.

To clarity misinformation in a story issued by local Los Angeles television station, KABC, the nature of cloning occasionally results in the birth of a litter rather than a single animal. The cloning procedure in this case resulted in a litter of four beautiful puppies, three of which survived. The KABC story was inaccurate in it’s headline which stated that Ms. Streisand had had beloved Coton de Tuléar, Samantha, cloned twice. The fact is that in using the DNA of … Read more »

After putting out an article (on this website) about how fake news gets almost double the tweets than real news, I felt really sad. Why are people so drawn to insults and negativity?

When I do an interview, I like to be quoted accurately. I also expect the truth to be told, with facts checked.

This is why I’m reluctant to give interviews without having quote approval. In last week’s Variety article, they mistakenly made it sound like I didn’t want to be in Funny Girl! What??? I fought hard for that part! How could they make that mistake? I loved the character of Fanny Brice (they even misspelled her name Franny).… Read more »

Larry Kramer does not need me to publicize his beautiful play. It stands on its own. For the last time – I will answer his complaints, which rewrite history.

When I saw the play in 1985 I was very moved and immediately contacted Larry to acquire the rights. After going through several drafts with Larry, I hired another writer to develop a screenplay that was faithful to Larry’s play — but adapting it to make it more cinematic. It was … Read more »

THEY met her when she was an 18-year-old new kid on the block performing in a tiny club. Wearing an outfit of her own creation (a white blouse and a long herringbone skirt) she opened her mouth, began to sing and brought one woman in the audience to tears.

AARP.

Talk about the ultimate engagement gift. When young Brooklynite Alan Bergman wanted to mark his upcoming marriage to fiancé Marilyn Katz, he wrote a song for her called “That Face,” and arranged for Fred Astaire to record it.

The Bergmans, now three-time Academy Award winners for their song lyrics, have been married for 54 years. And for many of them, there has been another woman in their life — the singer they call their “muse” and close collaborator, Barbra … Read more »

Here Babs goes bigger, singing the natural-fiber stuffing out of 10 dramatic tearjerkers by her old pals Alan and Marilyn Bergman (”The Way We Were,” ”You Don’t Bring Me Flowers”). On ”So Many Stars,” she even does a few bars in Portuguese, just because she can. B+… Read more »
