Barbra Streisand didn't want to write about 'any' of her famous exes in new tome
Barbra Streisand didn't want to spill anything about her famous exes in her upcoming autobiography.
Barbra Streisand was against writing about her famous exes in her tell-all tome, 'My Name Is Barbra'.
The 81-year-old music legend - who has been married to actor James Brolin, 83, for 25 years - didn't want to include her former flames in the autobiography, but her editor told her to "leave some blood on the page".
Speaking on 'CBS Sunday Morning', she told host Gayle King: "One of the reasons I wrote the book is to talk about the myths about me."
Her exes include actors Don Johnson, 73, and Ryan O'Neal, 82, former tennis ace Andre Agassi, 53, and the late former Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
She continued: "Listen, I didn't want to write about any of them.
"[But] my editor said, ‘You have to leave some blood on the page!'"
King complimented the 'Woman in Love' singer for her "very nice dating roster" and asked if she had "fun" with her former lovers, to which, she replied: "With the men in my life, yes."
In the tome, Streisand reveals she and King Charles had a flirtatious bond.
The EGOT-holder met the now-monarch when he was Prince of Wales, and she was working on 'Funny Girl' in the late 1960s.
She recalled how the pair of them were both "shy", but they struck up an "unexpected friendship" together.
Writing in her new memoir, she said: "The fact is, both Prince Charles and I are shy, but somehow we still managed to connect, because that proved to be the beginning of an unexpected friendship."
The 'A Star is Born' actress met up with Charles, 74, again when she performed at Wembley Arena in 1994 and he was in attendance as she went on to reveal that he sent her a bouquet of flowers the next day after she had performed the song 'Someday My Prince Will Come' from Disney classic 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'.
At the time, she told the audience: "Who knows? If I had been nicer to him, I could have been the first real Jewish princess!"
In her book, she elaborated: "It was simply signed ‘Charles’. And the flowers were fresh from his garden!
"He wrote, ‘It was such a treat to attend your concert last night — you were wonderful and I adored every minute. The Prince is the most gracious host and made everything easy for me, even sending his chauffeur to The Dorchester hotel to pick me up. The Prince is the most gracious host and made everything easy for me, even sending his chauffeur to The Dorchester hotel to pick me up."
The tome was first announced in 2015 but will finally be released on November 7.
