Full title as long as her nose: 'I wasn't like those pretty girls with those nice little noses': Barbra Streisand, 75, says she has never been sexually harassed and jokes it may be because of her looks"

Barbra Streisand said she's never suffered sexual harassment but has felt abused by the media.

During a tribute to Streisand's decades of TV music specials and other programs, producer and long-time admirer Ryan Murphy queried her about her career, the #MeToo movement and her aversion to interviews.

'Never,' she replied when asked if she had been sexually mistreated. 'I wasn't like those pretty girls with those nice little noses. Maybe that's why.'

I guess she proves that even sexual predators have some level of standards.

Well she is right about that. She looks like a mutant. She also is dumber than a rock. What a combo.

Ya think! Joke my ass! Her parents tied a hamburger around her neck just to get the dog to play with her!

She could be right. Also the attitude. It seems like a chilled pool to me but I’m a girl.

One of the first B. Streisand movies I ever saw was “The Owl & The Pussycat”, where she co-starred with George Segal.
Even at my early teen years, I could detect the lustful-passion and playfulness from Barbara. Yes, she was acting, but I had a feeling that much of that energy was her own.

This is a long way of saying, I could imagine Barbara in those days as being the first one to initiate contact.
I could see her being the one to ‘get the ball rolling’.

Hot axis : 0.001 (due to scale limitations)

Crazy axis : at least a 9.

I, for one, totally believe her.

Maybe it is. Or maybe she’s just lucky, or has too much of a respectable air that men wouldn’t dare.

Joking aside (yes, maybe she’s not hot enough), ugly women and fat women DO get harassed. Plenty men don’t care that much, if they could get something - or at least get a thrill out of giving a girl/woman a chill.

I’m sure she dished it out more often than not for whatever reason.

So you’re saying the men didn’t have a chance to harass because she started it?

Unique looks are attractive IMO. The Barbie and Ken look is not at all attractive to me. It is plain and boring.

Same thing with overly enhancing ones bust and other features. There is a fine line between being attractive and a becoming a real world caricature.

So, IMO Babs was pretty.

I thought she was gorgeous in Funny Girl.

She’s still a slimeball but she was, at one point, kinda hot.

I found her attractive when she was young, but I like the semitic look. I also always figured her to be really personally obnoxious.
