Barbra Streisand has decided how she would like to spend the rest of her days. Streisand spoke with BBC ahead of the release of her new memoir My Name is Barbra. According to Streisand she wants to spend the rest of her life alongside her husband of 25 years, James Brolin.
“I want to live life,” Streisand, 81, told the outlet in an interview published Sunday. “I want to get in my husband’s truck and just wander, hopefully with the children somewhere near us. Life is fun for me when they come over. They love playing with the dogs and we have fun.”
“I haven’t had much fun in my life, to tell you the truth,” she added. “And I want to have more fun.”
Streisand in her book spoke about when she met her husband.
“I had basically given up on finding someone. And frankly, I was all right with being on my own. I had my son, I had great friends to keep me company, my work was fulfilling, and I loved my new house in Malibu overlooking the ocean. Maybe you have to be happy with yourself before you can be happy with someone else.”
“I think the real reason our relationship has endured is that we’re both willing to work at it,” Streisand writes. “Jim and I are very different. As he’s said to me, ‘You’re an expert at looking for what’s wrong, while I’m just happy to wake up in the morning.’ (He’ll live much longer than me. He keeps saying he’s going to live to be 100, and recently upped it to 110. He probably will, with that attitude.)”
