Barbra Streisand: I’m No #MeToo Victim, I Was Never Sexually Harassed

During an interview at PaleyFest in Los Angeles, Ryan Murphy asked Barbra Streisand if she had ever been a #MeToo victim, to which she replied “never”.

In the interview she said she has felt abused by the media, the event was a tribute to her decades of TV music specials and other programs.

Never,” she answered Friday. “I wasn’t like those pretty girls with nice little noses. Maybe that’s why.”

Streisand added,“We’re in a strange time now in terms of men and women and the pendulum swinging this way and that way, and it’s going to have to come to the center,” directly addressing the #MeToo movement.

According to HuffPo: Streisand has said in the past that she believed sexism in Hollywood prevented her from receiving an Oscar nomination for directing. She recently chastised the Golden Globes for its lack of female director winners, declaring at the January awards ceremony, “Time’s up!”

At PaleyFest, the performer said her most satisfying moments in entertainment have come as a director. 

“That is such a complete experience,” she said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It just involves every sense you have, every nerve end. Your taste or your vision qualities. And trying to get the best out of the actors.”
