I was shocked to hear that John Singleton is gone. I was so pleased that he asked me to sign for him to get into the Directors Guild. I was honored to do so.

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 »

I want to thank Norman Lear and Dr. Michael Oppenheimer for their kind words.

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

     Is technological growth outweighing
spiritual growth?


     That question has posed itself recently
as the spiraling miracles of technology devise seemingly infinite
ways in which certain websites can strip away our last shreds of privacy
and confidentiality.


     In 1984, Barbra Streisand was in the
Middle East and appeared on the Good Morning America show via inter-continental
satellite. A common practice now, that technology was in its early
stages, and Streisand commented at the end of the interview, “If only

any country we want at this point – but does that mean we should?

President Bush’s plans for Iraq include rebuilding Iraqi schools …
but what about American schools?

Why can’t we provide better education to our young people?

With all of the wealth in this country, why do we have schools in
low-income neighborhoods that are overcrowded, lack accredited teachers
and even lack basic supplies?

come from nothing and achieve success if you just work hard enough

I pray for America’s military servicemen and women and their families.
I pray that this war is over quickly, that our troops come home safely
and that there are few civilian casualties.

I find it tragic that the Bush administration’s attempts at diplomacy
failed so miserably and have led us to the point of starting a war
that might have been avoided.

It was great to see the turnout for the antiwar rallies across the

rallies that followed. On Saturday, Washington saw the largest protest

place in San Francisco, Portland, Tampa and around the world. In
addition to these large-scale protests, the lack of a consensus for a

of the reasons for invading Iraq is to save the poor Iraqi people
who are being persecuted by Saddam Hussein. But what about our own
soldiers and Iraqi civilians who will be killed in the process?

I wrote these questions in September, 2002, but never put them
on my website. I think they are still relevant questions and are
worth considering:

1. How many body bags does the military expect to send home to
America?

2. What is the cost of the war in billions of dollars? One advisor
to the president estimates the war would cost up to $200 billion,
but he was quickly replaced by a more conservative successor.

This is a statement from George Bush, Sr. and National Security Advisor
Brent Scowcroft’s co-authored book, A World Transformed, written in 1998

President Bush and Scowcroft reflect on why the United States did not
try to remove Saddam Hussein from power at the end of the Gulf War:

of Iraq, would have … incurred incalculable human and … Read more »

Bush’s explanation in his State of the Union speech for why we need to
attack Iraq right now was unconvincing. Here are a couple of questions
that have not been answered:

Where is the link between al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein? Not only has the
Bush administration given us zero evidence of a connection, but many
experts think that a connection is unlikely given the fact that one
society is secular and the other is fundamentalist… There is no reason… Read more »

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 »

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 »

Lift your lamp of hope a little higher
Burn that flame of freedom
Just a little brighter please
For all the world to see

Oh, Lady Liberty
Show us how to stand and feel a little prouder
As the anthem plays let’s sing
And raise our voices even louder
Since the real danger lies in the sound of silence
