Barbra Streisand says she hasn’t had’much fun’ in her life ahead of the release of her new memoir.

The renowned actress and singer’s memoir ‘My Name is Barbra’ will be released on November 7th.

Barbra Streisand is speaking candidly about her time in the spotlight.

In an interview with the BBC before the release of her memoir My Name Is Barbra on Tuesday, the 81-year-old actress and singer admitted that she “hasn’t had much fun” in life. “I want to live life,” Streisand told the publication. “I want to get in my husband’s truck and just wander, hopefully with the children somewhere near us.”

“When they come around, it makes my life more enjoyable. They enjoy playing with the dogs, and we have fun,” she added. “I haven’t had much enjoyment in my life, to be honest. “And I want to have more fun.”

Streisand and her ex-husband, actor Elliot Gould, have a 56-year-old son named Jason Gould. She is married to James Brolin, stepmother to his three children, Josh (55), Jess (51), and Molly (36), and grandma to Josh’s four children, Trevor (35), Eden (29), Westlyn (5) and Chapel (2).

The iconic musician acknowledged that she is “a very private person” who “doesn’t enjoy stardom” as she pondered on her rise to prominence in the 1960s and the criticism she received for her appearance at the time. Despite her dislike for fame, Streisand admitted that she knew she wanted to be a performer from a young age.

“I was only five or six years old, and my little girlfriends and I used to sing together in the lobby,” the hotel “Evergreen” performer recalled. However, Streisand’s mother and stepfather were unconcerned about her goals and general interests. “I don’t remember him ever speaking to me or asking me any questions…How am I? How’s school going? “Anything,” she recalled throughout the interview. “He never saw me, and neither did my mother. She did not see my desire to be an actress. “She discouraged me.”
