Barbra Streisand was very close to Broadway writer and director Arthur Laurents.

The two worked on The Way We Were and she was going to collaborate with him again on the new film version of Gypsy.

This is what she has to say about her memories with Laurents:

"Arthur and I go way back to I Can Get It For You Wholesale in 1962. Then we did The Way We Were in 1973 and we were about to do Gypsy together. He created people you care about because he cared about people. I spoke to him a few weeks ago and he sounded so strong, as always. He was lucky to have lived a full and creative life up til the very end. I’ll miss working with him again."

So touching. We're sure it was very hard for her to hear about his passing.

His work of art will always be remembered.
