Coming up soon, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes one of the most iconic singers and actresses of our time, Barbra Streisand. Piers Morgan sits down with Streisand for a rare interview as the two look back on her lengendary career, on screen and stage, and look forward to her newest acting role in the film "Guilt Trip."
So as we head into the holiday season where family and friends often gather around the table for a feast, Morgan asks the 70-year-old to dream up a dinner party with guests from any time period. First on her list? "Albert Einstein," she says. "I'd like to meet him." A dinner party with some of the greats from history would not be complete without Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh.
"You'd have to put him [Van Gogh] on your left, right?" the host asks. "No, he could be on my - no, no I'd put him across," she corrects herself. Now that the two have named a couple of painters and a scientist, Morgan asks the entertainer to name an entertainer in history.
"Besides Marlon [Brando]?" Streisand asks. "Marlon, he is a definite," they both agree. As the duo move on to select one living person the host can't help but ask, "Who's the greatest living human being?"
"Holy mackerel," Streisand begins. "God, you ask these questions, they are amazing."
"I know who my answer would be," Morgan responds. "I would say Nelson Mandela ... He could have taken his country into utter civil war, and instead he took it into peace and prosperity. I just think he's the greatest man all over the world."
"Yeah, I'd like to have him at that dinner table," Streisand concurs.
"Let's have Nelson," Morgan declares.
"OK. Let's have him then," Streisand responds.
Morgan comes back, "He can talk to Einstein ... about the theory of relativity."
"And then Van Gogh can paint them," says Streisand.
