Barbra Streisand Gets Candid on Her Marriage, Her Album, Her Politics, and That ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake

Legendary singer, actress, and director Barbra Streisand sat down with “Extra's" Mario Lopez, getting candid about her marriage and her politics. She also revealed which celebrity impressed her the most while making her new album "Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway”… and what she thinks about the Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga remake of “A Star is Born”!

In this rare one-on-one, Barbra told Mario of her marriage to actor James Brolin that they've been together 20 years. Streisand said, "By the way, 20 years in Hollywood is like 50 years in Chicago, I always say.” She said the state of her marriage is "great," offering her advice on how couples can keep their own relationships great: “Kindness.” She shared, “The Dalai Lama says, 'Give truth with compassion...' I used to use truth as a weapon years ago, actually, 'Well, you look fat 'cause you’re fat... I’m telling you the truth.' Truth with compassion would say it a different way — I don’t think you can take each other for granted.”
