Streisand Chats About Playing Mama Rose In Gypsy!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBarbra Streisand


We can't express enough how much we love that this is happening. Nothing is giving us greater joy than knowing that in the not so distant future, we're going to see Barbra Streisand belt out Rose's Turn!

When the news broke last month that Babs was going to star in the new version of Gypsy as Mama Rose, we just about fainted and we've been waiting to hear from her what she thinks about the opportunity. As she will be honored this Friday by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences foundation for her tremendous contribution to the arts, Barbra briefly took a moment to talk about Gypsy.

She revealed to sources that the news of the film leaked "a little early, because the deal wasn't finished," but she confirmed she will be playing Mama Rose. However, she added that she might not be directing the film as it was once discussed because that might be "too much" for her. Still, she is excited to step into the iconic role, which she likens to a "bookend starting with 'Funny Girl.'"

Beautifully said! We loved you then, as we love you now and we're sure to love you still when you step into this role!

    Today while driving on the back roads to my house, I looked into the car next to me and saw the cutest little old lady belting out Barbra with her windows rolled down…ADORABLE. I gave her a thumbs up at the stop sign before we went our separate ways:)

    Should leave well enough alone. Gypsy was inspired and perfection. Leave it alone. They won't. Didn't Burlesque show that no one wants to see an old broad, even a legend in a musical? I loved it personally, but was in the minority in my loving it.

    This woman is a piece of SHIT. I cant stand this bitch.

    My mother was a fan of hers before Barbara became a star. My mother never had enough money to go to a concert because she was too busy raising two kids with no help from dear old Dad. When my mother finally got to a place where she had a little disposable income, the tickets were like $500. My mother died LOVING Barbara and never said a bad word about her, but I know that the only regret that my mom died with was not getting to see Barbara. Barbara cares about money and not her less fortunate fans.

    Worse piece of crap than Alec Baldwin who is an epic douche. You know… The guy that called his daughter a rude, thoughtless, little pig. Yep that one.

    Her ego already let her get miscast (and ruin) Hello Dolly and On A Clear Day… Gypsy ends when Mama Rose is barely 50. The woman was dead at a younger age than Streisand, who is pushing 70. While Streisand's inate obnoxiousness and ego is perfect for the role, it would hardly be acting.

    Far too old to play the mother of young girls.
