Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand First Interview Together on 'Oprah' (VIDEO)

Believe It or Not!

Robert Redford has never been on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Redford and Barbra Streisand have never done an interview together, even when they co-starred opposite each other in 1973's 'The Way We Were.'

When Redford found out that Winfrey was paying tribute to Streisand, however, he decided to come on the show, much to the delight of Winfrey, who pointed out that Redford and Streisand indeed had never sat together for an interview. When Streisand wondered out loud "how come we never did," Redford replied "Because I thought I wouldn't get a word in."

And sure enough, when Winfrey asked Redford if he almost had turned down the lead in 'The Way We Were,' Streisand piped up and started to answer for him, causing Redford to quip, "Why don't you let Barbra tell the story, it's really a good story." But Streisand demurred, and Redford told the story.

Wonder if James Brolin has that problem?

I can't believe she actually shushed the audience when they reacted to something funny. I realize she was trying to hear what Robert was saying but that was a very rude jesture.

Barbara Streisand is a legend..this woman has gone up and beyond most movie stars of our time..she has donated plenty of money and her time to organizations we probably do not even know about..and as far as the interview she happens to be a shy , modest person..anyone that is a fan of her knows this about her..don't use your political opinions to confuse what she has contributed as an entertainter..instead you judge her by what party she chooses to vote for...we should all be interested and have some knowledge about the government and how this country is run..people like her make AMERICA a better place..I applaud her!

Barbara was a terribly boring interview and she acted sometimes like she didn't know the answers to her own personal questions. Even with RR there, it didn't help matters. I watched it at midnight to 1 and what a wasted hour of sleep loss. I kept hoping it would develop into something better.
