On the time she smoked pot on stage in the 70s: “One night I really did it onstage when I was doing the Forum concert in the 70s, it was part of my shtick. [Laughing] I talked about pot and I was working with [producer] Richard Perry, so that’s why. [Laughing]…I tried it once and I didn’t like the way it made me feel. So I never did it again.”

On drinking: “I like beer with Chinese food or Italian food and I also like non-alcoholic beer.”

On when we will see a documentary about her life: “We’ve been putting together a documentary for the last, I think, 20 years. I just haven’t [had time]. I’ve been busy. After I finish my book, I will think about the documentary.”

On whether we will see a scripted biopic about her life: “After I’m gone. Not while I’m alive. No, no, no, no, no, no. I’d just say, listen to the truth in my book and portray me truthfully, but not while I’m here. I get upset when something’s false or something’s a lie. That’s why I wrote the song, ‘Don’t Lie to Me.’ I couldn’t help making a video. I probably really lost a lot of people, a lot of fans doing that. But you have to face the truth. I have to face my own truth. I have to face what I think is going on in the world. That’s who I am. I just believe in the power of the truth.”

James Brolin has been married to Barbra Streisand for nearly 23 years and he says that they recently fell in love with each other again during the pandemic.
