BIOGRAPHY:

Barbra Streisand was born on April 24, 1942, in Brooklyn, New York. She is an actress, director, producer and writer. Among her many films are Hello, Dolly! (1969), A Star Is Born (1976), Yentl (1983) and The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996). As a child she attended the Beis Yakov Jewish School in Brooklyn. She is good friends with singer/songwriter Neil Diamond (I), with whom she dueted on the smash hit song, "You Don't Bring Me Flowers". They both attended the same high school and sang together in the school choir. Barbra has one son, Jason Gould (I), with ex-husband Elliott Gould. She is now married to James Brolin. She has won many awards including two Oscars, five Emmys, eight Golden Globes, three People's Choice Awards, two Women in Film Crystal Awards and two ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards. Barbra has also received an American Film Institute award and a Cecil B. DeMille Award.


TRIVIA:
  • Measurements: 36-25-36 (1960s measures), 34 1/2B-27 1/2-33 1/2 (filming _The Main Event (1979)_ (qv)), 34B-25-36 (1995 stats). (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine).
  • Only artist to receive Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, CableACE and Peabody awards.
  • When she and 'Neil Diamond (I)' (qv) had a smash hit in 1978 with "You Don't Bring Me Flowers", it was not the first time that the Brooklyn-born superstars had sung together. While students at New York City's Erasmus High School, they both sang in the school choir.
  • Solo artist with longest time span between first #1 and latest #1 albums (33 years between "People" and "Higher Ground").
  • During the filming of _Hello, Dolly! (1969)_ (qv), Barbra and co-star 'Walter Matthau' (qv) fought bitterly. He disliked her so intensely that he refused to be around her except when required to do so by the script. He is famously quoted as telling Barbra that she "had no more talent than a butterfly's fart". Interestingly, he is clearly seen in the audience at Barbra's _One Voice (1986) (TV)_ (qv) concert at her Malibu ranch, where invitation-only guests paid $5,000 per couple to help establish the Streisand Foundation, which supports numerous charitable organizations. Apparently, he did not hold grudges.
  • Born at 5:08 AM EST
  • Dated former Canadian Prime Minister 'Pierre Trudeau' (qv).
  • Second most Gold album certifications (47) {#1: 'Elvis Presley' (qv)}.
