The singer/actress/director is penning a memoir, which will be published by Viking in 2017, the New York Times reports. The autobiography will offer Streisand’s own take on her life, as opposed to the myriad biographies published about Streisand throughout the years, Viking president Brian Tart promised, noting that previous works about her life are “full of myths and inaccuracies.” Also Read: Barbra Streisand Tops Chris Brown With History-Making Album Debut Previously, Streisand wrote the 2010 interior-style book “My Passion for Design” for Viking. »

Barbra Streisand sang about her “misty water-colored memories" in the hit 1974 song “The Way We Were.” Now she’s writing about them.

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Humans aren't the only ones who get anxious about flying. It sounds as though Barbra Streisand was understandably pretty mortified when her beloved dog, a Coton de Tulear named Samantha, bit a flight attendant when the singer was headed to Washington, D.C., on Tuesday aboard billionaire Ron Perelman's private jet. The attendant required stitches, according to Page Six, which first reported the in-flight disturbance. "This never happened before," a rep for Streisand explained to People. "The dog has never had this kind of behavior." "She's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen. She's like the daughter I never had," Streisand gushed to London's »
Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig at the Oscars Sporting an ultra-cool look, Trent Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig, both members of the hip, experimental band How to Destroy Angels, arrive at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Trent Reznor, formerly the frontman of the alternative rock group Nine Inch Nails, and fellow How to Destroy Angels band member Atticus Ross went on to share the Best Original Score Oscar for their work on David Fincher's Facebook movie The Social Network. After Reznor's Oscar win, "I want to thank you like an animal" became a Twitter hit – in reference to a similar-sounding line found in the Nine Inch Nails' 1994 song "Closer." Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' Oscar 2011 competitors were: Hans Zimmer, at one point the favorite for the Best Original Score Academy Award, for »

A source tells Us Weekly the legendary singer's beloved dog was behaving herself on the private jet owned by Ron Perelman, until a flight attendant attempted to pat the dog without offering it her hand first.

It's no secret that Robert Redford has left a major impact on film culture, from his early, iconic screen performances to the influence of his Sundance Institute and the film festival that came out of it. Nevertheless, the tribute to Redford at last night's Film Society of Lincoln Center Chaplin Gala — where the actor was 42nd person to receive the Chaplin award — brought particular clarity to Redford's impact across several generations. Here are some of the highlights from the evening's speakers, which included Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Elisabeth Moss and even George Lucas. Redford wasn't a natural celebrity. "I noticed early on Bob's discomfort with stardom and the trappings that went with it," said Jane Fonda, who co-starred with Redford in three films early in their careers. "I remember walking through the administration building at Paramount studios and the secretaries would come bounding out of their offices when they realized he was walking through. »

Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand's duet of "Get Happy/Happy Days Are Here Again" is one of the great performances of the '60s. It's Judy at her gurgliest and Barbra at her bubbliest, and together they make a weirdly perfect team. Well, now they're both back in the form of singer Christina Bianco, who imitates both voices flawlessly. For comparison's sake, here's the original. Still wild. »

Bradley Cooper is in talks to direct Warner Bros.' remake of 1937 musical "A Star Is Born," which would make this his first feature. Cooper, along with Jon Peters, Bill Gerber and Basil Iwanyk, will also produce this version of William A. Wellman's Oscar-nominated Tinseltown tale of aging movie star Norman Maine who ushers a hopeful young starlet's rise to fame while grappling with alcoholism and the near-end of his career. The film has already been remade twice: first in 1954 with Judy Garland, who was in the hospital during her notorious Oscar snub, and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand. Clint Eastwood was attached to this latest remake back in 2011, with Beyonce Knowles in talks to play Esther Blodgett. That fell through and Eastwood shifted to another musical, "Jersey Boys." According to THR, Cooper is shopping several projects to direct for Warner Bros. In 2014 he and "Hangover" director Todd Phillips signed a three-picture, »

Now here’s a pairing none of us saw coming: hot off an Oscar nomination for his powerhouse leading turn in American Sniper, Bradley Cooper has entered negotiations to take the reins on a Warner Bros. remake of A Star Is Born that was previously being circled by Cooper’s Sniper director Clint Eastwood. The redo, which has been in the pipeline for many years, had courted Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, Russell Crowe, Christian Bale and Tom Cruise over the years to star, but it’s expected that Cooper will also take on the male lead.
As for the equally important female lead, the project is apparently still angling for pop royalty, with eyes for veritable Queen of the World Beyoncé Knowles. Of course, Beyoncé has not yet been approached, but the producers are hoping to do that very quickly if Cooper signs a deal to direct.

In the works for a while now, the new version of the film was initially set to be directed by Cooper’s American Sniper director Clint Eastwood, but went on the back-burner after Eastwood chose to make Sniper and last year’s Jersey Boys instead. Word is that once Cooper has finished his run in The Elephant Man, which moves from Broadway to London’s West End very soon, he will start work on the film.
In addition, the studio are hoping that Cooper will take on the male lead in the film, which had Tom Cruise (Edge of Tomorrow), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street), Will Smith (Focus) and Christian Bale (Knight of Cups) all rumoured for at different points, »

Bradley Cooper is reportedly in serious talks with Warner Bros. to make his directorial debut with a remake of "A Star is Born." His "American Sniper" boss Clint Eastwood was previously attached to direct with none other than pop superstar Beyoncé lined up as the female lead, but that fell through a few years ago. Will Warner Bros. be able to convince Queen Bey to give it another shot?
The original musical was a glossy David O. Selznick production from 1937, starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March as an aspiring actress and her aging paramour. It was first remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason, and then remade/rebooted in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson as rockers instead of actors.
Whether or not Cooper will also star is up in the air, as is whether or not WB will approach Beyoncé for the role once again. It would be »

According to Deadline, the actor could also appear in the film alongside Beyoncé if they manage to get her on board again.
Similarly, Cooper was also rumoured to be in line for an on-screen role last time around but publicly dismissed any involvement.
Should Cooper secure the project, A Star Is Born will mark his directorial debut. »
Warner Bros. is now negotiating with four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper to direct and star in a remake of the classic film "A Star Is Born." It would be his first time helming a movie, and production would start after he finishes starring in "The Elephant Man" on stage in London. He and the studo would like to pursue Beyonce to play the lead character, a young woman "whose dreams of stardom are helped by a self-destructive icon whose best days are behind him." It would be the fourth feature version of this story after ones in 1937 (Fredrick March, Janet Gaynor), 1954 (James Mason, Judy Garland), and 1976 (Kris Kristofferson, Barbra Streisand). Deadline -Break- Fox is bringing back "The X-Files" after an extended 13-year break. One of the network's most popular programs ever will begin production this summer with stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. Original creator Chris Carter will shepherd the »
