I don’t care what you say about me. Just be sure to spell my name wrong.

Barbra Streisand Quotes

The multi-talented and multi-award winning star,  Barbra Streisand, has had a prolific and influential career. She’s even one of the few to achieve an EGOT.

Barbra Streisand also offers a lot of inspirational quotes and sayings that show her self-acceptance which is just one more reason to like her. She said, “I was a personality before I became a person – I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy and driven.”

Even in the face of, ahem, the “imperfect” Barbra Streisand nose and the attention it has gained, she owned it and made it her gimmick as well as something to be proud of. She said, “I arrived in Hollywood without having my nose fixed, my teeth capped, or my name changed. That is very gratifying to me.”

She has even shown her feminist side by saying, “Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work… a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.”
