Barbra Streisand on How She Got Robert Redford in ‘The Way We Were’ –

Barbra Streisand has revealed in her upcoming memoir, “My Name Is Barbra,” how she convinced Robert Redford to star in the 1973 film, “The Way We Were,” after he initially turned it down twice. Streisand and director Sydney Pollack were determined to have Redford in the film, believing that only he could make it work. However, Redford felt that his character, Hubbell, was underdeveloped and one-dimensional. Streisand persuaded Pollack to give Redford more scenes and hired two writers to expand his character. Eventually, Redford agreed, and the film went on to win two Oscars. Streisand’s memoir will be released on November 7.
