Throughout her decades-long career, Barbra Streisand has broken down many barriers for women — but she says she’s “never” experienced sexual harassment.
The icon was honored for her unbelievable career at PaleyFest on Friday, sitting down for an intimate conversation with Ryan Murphy at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, where she revealed that while she sympathizes with many women participating in the #MeToo movement, she can’t relate.
“Never! No. I mean, never,” Streisand replied when Murphy asked if she had a #MeToo story. “I mean, I wasn’t like those pretty girls with those nice little noses. Maybe that’s why.”
“I had no idea,” she continued, mentioning a dinner she had with a “very beautiful woman last night” who shared she also hadn’t been a victim of harassment. “It depends on the circumstances,” Streisand said.
The Oscar winner did, however, acknowledge that times were changing for women in the entertainment industry. “It’s tough. We’re in a strange time now, in terms of men and women and the pendulum swinging this way and that way,” she expressed. “It’s going to have to come to the center.”
