After beginning her career performing in nightclubs and Broadway theaters in the early 1960s, the New York native seemed to emphasize her singing career, releasing two studio albums a year from 1963 to 1967. .

She was also recognized for her performances on Broadway during this period in I Can Get It for You Wholesale (1961–1963) and Funny Girl (1964–1965), both of which earned her a Tony Award nomination.

Her big break in film came with the adaptation of the musical comedy-drama Funny Girl (1968), which won her the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Whether in film, as an actress or director, on television or on stage, Streisand has succeeded in all areas of show business.

In fact, her vast abilities over a career that spans more than six decades also puts her on the short list of people to win an EGOT, that is, someone who has won an Emmy , a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.

As of 2023, only 18 people have achieved competitive EGOT status and six others, including Streisand, have done so with honorary or special awards.

While devoting time to his varied talents and interests, his film career seems to have taken the hardest hit, not for lack of love but because of the time it takes to produce a film.

After scoring successes as star and director in The Prince of Tides (1991) and The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), the Brooklyn native only appeared in three comedy films in 27 years.

After revealing in her recent memoir – My Name Is Barbra – that there was a time when she was “too scared” to be seen as sexy, the Funny Girl star now admits “I’m too old to care worry.”

While her last film came out almost 14 years ago, Barbra readily admits that she’s simply too tired to make another film.

“It gets exhausting trying to find the structure of the film and then not having it happen,” she told PEOPLE. earlier this month.

“I had a lot of movies I wanted to make, and then I get lazy.”

She added, “Oh yeah, to do this one I have to have all these period clothing fittings. This one, I would have to live in Arkansas to do that one.” I don’t know. It’s complicated, but I’m complicated, I guess… I’m getting lazy,” she confessed.

In her recent autobiography, My Name Is Barbra, she also revealed that if she had continued making films all these years, she would never have been able to write the book.

“If I could have made my films, I would never have written a book,” said The Way We Were singer. “I had some really good films to make, which meant they were about things that were close to my heart, very interesting subjects.”

Ultimately, it took Streisand about 10 years to write her 970-page memoir, which covers her early life in New York through her career in New York and Hollywood.

In her memoir, the legendary artist also talks about her husband James Brolin, 83, whom she met on a blind date in 1996 and then married two years later; the couple is seen in Los Angeles in August 2016

While the audiobook version included 48 hours of narration from Streisand herself, it ended up taking about six weeks.

“I think doing the audiobook, I was so sick of myself – can you imagine? I mean, you write a book for 10 years, then you have to say it out loud,” she said. Variety last month.
