Robert redford and barbra streisand dating
What bugs the Bel Air establishment is that Barbra keeps picking her own properties and men, and yet never (commercially at least) falls on what is known back in Flatbush as her tush.For example, three scorers and two years ago, not to mention five writers, two producers and two directors, Jon and Barbra brought forth on this continent a prospective third remake of the movie classic . No, Streisand is playing herself (or the Judy Garland role of the starlet on the rise), and Peters has cast as himself (the James Mason part of the superstar on the skids) another bearded heavy, Kris Kristofferson.
"He was over at the house one day, sitting in the john while I was doodling on the piano—he heard me and asked me to collaborate." The rest of the score, claims Streisand, "is all in my head this very minute. "I was supposed to do The Merry Widow with Ingmar Bergman," she says. All women should call their own shots, not in a militant manner but with the conviction that they've got a helluva lot to offer other than looking pretty and passive." Collaborating on a picture would seem to be the 51st—and surest-fire— way on Paul Simon's list of 50 ways to leave a lover.Until, one night, Peters was requested to come by—to his fury—to create a wig for her.If it all sounds like Jon was the model for the insatiable protagonist of , Peters snaps, "Hell, no." Jon made his house calls not on a Triumph like George but in a Ferrari, and he protests, "I never went through women like that guy did. I've been married twice..." He was married, in fact, at the time to actress Lesley Ann Warren.Naturally, some of the folks she and Jon have gone through along the way are now busily bad-mouthing the enterprise. "So what if Jon was a hairdresser," snaps Barbra, her pale blue eyes ablaze. "This man has done a lot to open my life," she exults. He doesn't let people walk over him." Not even Streisand?Responds the exec producer: "Sure, we've had problems, but tell me what major movie hasn't? "A lot of producers in Hollywood started off selling dresses in New York City. "He has exposed me to a lot of things I wasn't aware of before, like gardening and health foods." Besides, Barbra continues, "Jon is a very strong man. He's sold off his beauty salon empire, but doesn't Jon still do Barbra? That's a joke between us." "He never fools with It," she chimes in, "except when we're making out." When Jon combed his way into Streisand's life in August 1973, her marriage to the erratic Gould was long kaput.
The New York Post said Peters sold a proposal for his memoir, "Studio Head," to Harper-Collins last month for $700,000.
