Barbra Streisand Interview

One of the world’s best-loved entertainers, the amazing Barbra Streisand tells Candis why, at 72, she’s happier than she’s ever been…

Inside our March issue, Barbra reveals all about her gorgeous exes, her ‘perfect’ husband, and what happened when she flew Elvis to Vegas…


On her hopes and dreams:
“I only wanted to be an actress. I didn’t want to be a singer. And when I was 18, singing in clubs, I hadn’t experienced half of what I sang about, but I experienced it in my imagination. I used to go to acting classes, I never went to singing classes.

On her mother:
“I think sometimes there are parents who don’t really like themselves. They don’t like their offspring either. My mother meant well. She loved me as best she could. She had dreams of her own and she wanted to be a singer.”

On beauty:

“Even today… I have two different sides of my face. At first I didn’t really know which side was good. I have got to know my face and from certain angles, maybe I am beautiful. From others I think I am horrible.”

On cooking:

“I’ve taken a seven and a half hour flight with a big thick cookbook and read it from cover to cover because I’m fascinated with how you can put two eggs and a cup of sugar together and you get a cake out of it!”
