Barbra Streisand’s Tell-All Memoir Reveals X-Rated Encounter with Marlon Brando
Barbra Streisand, the legendary Funny Girl star, has released her long-awaited memoir titled “My Name Is Barbra,” providing readers with insights into her remarkable six-decade career as a singer, actor, and director in both Broadway and Hollywood.
While the memoir delves into her professional life, it also opens a window into her personal experiences, including a provocative revelation about an encounter with Marlon Brando.
The Marlon Brando Encounter
In a chapter titled “Brando,” Streisand recounts her first meeting with Marlon Brando at a party in 1966.
At that time, both Streisand and Brando were married, with Streisand being married to Elliott Gould, whom she met while working on Broadway, and Brando to his third wife, Tarita Teriipaia.
Despite being in the presence of their spouses, Brando made a bold and crude proposition to Streisand, leaving her initially appalled.
He looked into her eyes and said, “I’d like to f*** you.” Streisand responded, “That sounds awful,” but was intrigued when Brando suggested going to a museum with her.
She had fantasized about exploring a museum with someone she was deeply attracted to.
Brando’s Remark about Streisand’s Marriage
As their conversation continued, Brando made an unexpected remark about Streisand’s marriage. He stated, “I don’t think you’re going to be with Elliott much longer.” This prediction shocked Streisand, who replied, “I’m married to him.
What do you mean?” Brando explained his perspective, saying, “I don’t think he’s good-looking enough for you.” Remarkably, Brando’s prediction came true, as Streisand and Elliot eventually divorced in 1971 after eight years of marriage and the birth of their son.
The Result: Lifelong Friendship
Despite Brando’s proposition, Streisand turned him down, and their relationship took a different turn. They became lifelong friends and remained in contact through phone calls.
Despite being unmarried following their respective divorces, Streisand and Brando did not pursue a romantic relationship.

The two eventually tied the knot in 1998 and have celebrated 25 years of marriage. Their love story is a testament to the unpredictable twists and turns of life and relationships.
