Barbra Streisand on Boston Bombings: 'Can We Just Stop Hurting People?'

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway was with Barbra Streisand as she was honored with the Chaplin Award from the Film Society of Lincoln Center. In a rare interview, the veteran performer talked about the recent bombings in Boston.

“It’s very hard to understand the minds of people who want to hurt other people. Little Martin Richard was right... can we just stop hurting people?”

On her career moving forward, Streisand said, “I want to direct. I want to direct without being in the film, or act and not direct, who knows?”

Streisand admitted that being behind the camera is one of her favorite things, and while she didn’t specifically say what she was working on, she did say she had two things on the horizon.

Barbra said that after all these years, she still isn’t used to the attention. “It's a strange thing to have an evening like this. When I do concerts, it’s always strange when people applaud. I never know what to do. I’m thrilled and honored, but I’ve never gotten quite used to it.”
