Coming up Sunday at 9, Piers Morgan welcomes legendary "Evergreen" songstress and "Funny Girl" star Barbra Streisand for an entertaining and honest primetime interview that touches upon everything from politics to theatrics, gender roles to legendary colleagues.
As part of the rare sit-down on "Piers Morgan Tonight," the 70-year-old, multifaceted performer reveals Marlon Brando as her all-time favorite thespian:
"He was fascinating," she says of the "The Godfather" star. High praise from the equally iconic Streisand, who throughout her illustrious career has garnered Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards.
As the discussion continues, Streisand shares the story of the time Brando invited her on an overnight road trip:
"He wanted to take me to the desert, to see the wild flowers," she explains. "And sleep over in a ghost town."
Despite her suitor's star status, Streisand accepted the invitation only with conditions:
"I was such a nice Jewish girl that I just said, 'Marlon, I can't stay overnight with you. I'll go with you for the day but you have to take me home.'"
Noting that she had essentially "turned down Marlon Brando," Morgan asked how he took the rejection:
"He was fine," she says.
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Streisand explains the phone conversation she had with Brando, which included singing and a recitation from "Hamlet." Then tune in at 9 for the full, hour-long interview with one of the most-beloved and most-decorated women in the history of show business.
