Barbra Streisand chats on “CBS News Sunday Morning” about her life, loves, and memoir.

In a fascinating interview for “CBS News Sunday Morning,” which will air Sunday, November 5 on CBS and watch on Paramount+, award-winning singer, actor, and director Barbra Streisand reveals the death of her father when she was just 15 months old left a significant void in her life. Streisand talks to “CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle King on life, love, and her long-awaited memoir, “My Name Is Barbra” (due out Tuesday). Here are some snippets.

BARBRA STREISAND: “I was angry because I did not have a father. I asked my mother, ‘Why didn’t you tell me about my father?’ She said, ‘I didn’t want you to miss him.'” Gayle King: “She didn’t seem very affectionate … to you.” STREISAND: “She didn’t believe in it…” I said, ‘Mom, how come you don’t ever touch me or speak the words, I love you?’ She revealed that her parents never hugged her. “But I knew they loved me.” Now I said, ‘Well, I didn’t realize you loved me.”

STREISAND: “I walked past him, touched his hair, and asked, ‘Who f***ed up your hair?'” Because it was the truth. And I didn’t. What else could I say? Hello, my name is Barbra. “I mean, what?” KING: “Jim, some folks may have been turned off by your directness. You weren’t. “That appealed to you, right?” JAMES BROLIN says, “Very.” King: “Why?” BROLIN: “No.” It was instant. It was as if a wand had gone, Bing! “You’re screwed.”

About her new book: KING: “What do you hope people get out of your book? “What would you like them to know about you?” STREISAND states, “I want them to know the truth.”One of the reasons I wrote the book was to discuss the myths surrounding myself. More of King’s conversation with Streisand will air on “CBS Mornings” on Monday, November 6, on CBS and Paramount+.
