Within the world of show business, Barbra Streisand is unquestionably a household name. Streisand is one of the very few artists who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award (also known as the EGOT).
She began her career in the 1960s by acting in nightclubs and on Broadway. She immediately made the move to cinema and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her depiction of the legendary Fanny Brice in the film “Funny Girl,” which was released in 1968.
She continued to be successful in the music industry as well as in Hollywood, even going so far as to win a second Oscar for her work writing music for the film adaptation of “A Star Is Born” that was released in 1976.
Her romantic relationships, on the other hand, are not as well known to the general public as her professional life is. She was married to actor Elliot Gould for a good portion of the 1960s, and the pair is the parents of actor Jason Gould.
Streisand and Jason even had a scene together in “The Prince of Tides” in which they played a mother and son.
Streisand went on to have a handful of more relationships over the following couple of decades with persons such as Don Johnson, Richard Gere, and Andre Agassi after she divorced Gould in the early 1970s. These relationships spanned the next couple of decades.
On the other hand, on July 1, 1998, she tied the knot with the guy who would go on to become her partner of many years. Since then, the couple has stayed together and is now celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary as a happy married couple.
Today, Streisand and her husband, the actor James Brolin, enjoy a lovely life together and have continued to prove that some Hollywood relationships can last the test of time.
The parts that Brolin played in the television series “Hotel” from 1983 to 1988 and “Marcus Welby, M.D.” from 1969 to 1976 are what brought him the most fame. In addition to that, he has been in a number of movies, such as “Skyjacked” and “Westworld.”
His collection of work has been recognized with a number of accolades, including a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California. Brolin has been married three times over his life, and he is the father of three children, one of them is the actor Josh Brolin.
People may believe that Streisand and Brolin have known each other all of their lives due to the strength of the bond that exists between the two of them at the present time. The two of them really had their first encounter on a blind date.
It wasn’t quite as romantic as it is portrayed in the movies. In point of fact, Streisand’s initial interaction with Brolin consisted of making fun of his hair. To our good fortune, they had an evident magnetic attraction for one another.
According to Streisand, Brolin informed her that he “knew (right away)” that she was the one for him, but it took her “a few days” to feel the same way. When Brolin and Streisand first began dating, he remembers that his friends warned him not to marry the singer right away.
Streisand had already been married at the time. He said this when appearing on The Talk: “I heard it over and over, that she’s a difficult one.” Thankfully, he did not pay attention to their words of caution.
Streisand and Brolin have been married for almost 25 years at this point, and they are now celebrating their anniversary. After dating for a total of two years, the couple finally tied the wedding on July 1, 1998.
They invited all of their celebrity pals to their little wedding ceremony, which included guests such as Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Quincy Jones, and John Travolta. During the celebration, Barbra Streisand performed two songs, and that Josh Brolin made a legendary statement in which he said:
“I have no words to describe how fortunate I feel that something like this would happen to me at this stage of my life. Every night brings a brand-new experience. It is a complete waste of time to sleep. The next time I see her will be in the morning, and I can’t wait!”
There are a lot of things that have contributed to their long-lasting and happy marriage. Neither star has made any concessions to the other in terms of their career or independence.
Brolin said in an that both he and Streisand have their own money and work hard to keep their independence so that their relationship does not get difficult.
According to what Streisand said in an interview, she attributes their successful relationship to “compassion.”
She is certain that this piece of sound advise may assist partners in maintaining healthy and fulfilling relationships.
