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.

LYRICS

By Desmond Child.

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

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

Lady Liberty
I see you rise above the crashing waves
Bearing witness

For those who are encouraged and inspired by my art, you make what I do worthwhile – – thank you, dearly. For those who tell me to “keep my mouth shut,” here is my response. It’s as true today as it was nearly 25 years ago when I spoke these words:

It was great to see the turnout for the antiwar rallies across the
country this past weekend, and the strong media coverage of those
rallies that followed. On Saturday, Washington saw the largest protest
in the capitol since the Vietnam era, with additional protests taking
place in San Francisco, Portland, Tampa and around the world. In
addition to these large-scale protests, the lack of a consensus for a
war was underscored by such diverse segments of our society as labor… Read more »

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:

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 has long been understood that the only way to create a fair society

understands this rhetoric, and even stole the Children Defense Fund’s
“Leave No Child Behind” motto for last year’s education
bill. However, as the Children Defense Fund’s website points out,
Bush’s policies would more appropriately be entitled, “Leave
No Millionaire Behind.” Bush has done more than any president

While we are all rooting for President Bush to win the War on
Terrorism, it is important that we know the facts about the homeland
and national security debate. The assertion that Democrats are not
committed to homeland and national security is ludicrous and is a
perfect example of the ability of the Republican spin machine to distort
the issues. In fact, a little history is in order:

How incredible is it that only twenty-five hours were spent in the Congress debating WAR!!

debating WAR when twenty-five hours were spent filing for a sewage permit.

According to Senator Edward Kennedy, twenty-three days were spent debating the Agriculture Bill.

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???

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 »
