Barbra Streisand Net Worth, Wiki & Biography in 2017

American author, actress, film director and producer, as well as a singer and songwriter, Barbra Streisand was born on 24 April 1942, in Brooklyn, New York City, of Jewish descent – Polish-Ukrainian from her mother, and Russian through her father. She is actually famous because of her several talents, making her one of the most successful people in several entertainment genres. She has sold over 71 million albums in the US alone, while the number exceeds 245 million worldwide, compiling  a total of 32 albums since 1963 which have entered the top ten albums in the US and many other countries, and the only artist to score a #1in six successive decades.

So just how rich is Barbra Streisand, as of mid-2017? According to authoritative sources, Streisand’s net worth is estimated to be over $380 million, collected from her successful singing and acting career which began in the late 1950s.

Barbra Streisand Net Worth $380 Million

Barbra Joan Streisand attended Erasmus Hall High School, at the same time beginning her singing career in 1955, when she recorded several songs in one of New York’s recording studios. She went on to become a nightclub singer and appeared in a variety of local clubs, but it was in “The Lion” where she finally became successful as a singer. Streisand’s performances in clubs gave her many career opportunities, and gained her an appearance on “The Tonight Show”, her first television appearance, followed by other similar appearances, before in 1963 releasing her debut self-titled album. The success of her debut work was immense, as the album peaked at #8 on the Billboard pop charts and received gold certification from the RIAA, as well as two Grammy Awards. Since then, Barbra Streisand has released more than 50 studio albums, 31 of which received platinum certification and 13 multi-platinum – obviously her singing career has had a large influence on her total net worth.

In addition, Barbra Streisand is a noted actress. Since her debut in “Funny Girl”, earning her a Golden Globe Award, as well as an Academy Award, she has worked alongside some of the most famous actors, including Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller in “Meet the Fockers”, Pierce Brosnan in “The Mirror Has Two Faces”, Nick Nolte and Blythe Danner in “The Prince of Tides” and, more recently, Seth Rogan in “The Guilt Trip”. Overall, Streisand has succeeded in winning eight Grammy, five Emmy and a Kennedy Center Honors Awards, to name a few.

In her personal life, Barbra was married to actor Elliot Gould from 1963 to 72 with whom she has a son, and since 1998 has been married to actor James Brolin. They live in Malibu, Southern California.

Her philanthropic efforts are directed through The Streisand Foundation, particularly targeting Jewish charities, including the Jewish University in Jerusalem, and Israeli Defence Force charity.

11Was considered for the role of "Sandy Olsson" in Grease (1978).
12Was the 66th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Actress Oscar for Funny Girl (1968) at The 41st Annual Academy Awards (1969) on April 14, 1969.
13She was the first woman to ever win a Golden Globe as Best Director. As of 2013, she still remains as sole winner.
14Her paternal grandparents, Isaac Streisand and Anna Kesten, were Austrian Jewish immigrants (from Galicia). Her maternal grandparents, Louis Rosen and Ida Friedland, were Russian Jews.
15Preparing for a 24-city tour which will begin on Ocotber 4, 2006. [August 2006]
16Release of the book, "Barbra: The Way She Is" by Christopher Andersen. [2006]
17Is planning to produce and direct a musical version of All About Eve (1950). [January 2004]
18Uncharacteristically for her, when she recorded the Leonard Bernstein / Stephen Sondheim song "Somewhere" for "The Broadway Album" (1985), the entire backing score was generated on synthesizers under the supervision of producer David Foster. No orchestra whatsoever.
19Asked if she had any regrets looking back over her career, Barbra stated during an "Extra" interview (she was promoting The Guilt Trip (2012)) that she wished she had appeared in more films. She kiddingly said she gave Jane Fonda her award-winning career by turning down They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969), Klute (1971) and Julia (1977).
20At Erasmus High School she said she had an unrequited crush on a schoolmate who also would achieve international renown--chess genius Bobby Fischer.
21Former stepmother-in-law of Diane Lane.
22Discovered that she was pregnant with her son Jason Gould when she was starring in the London production of "Funny Girl".
23Returned to work six months after giving birth to her son Jason Gould in order to begin recording her 11th album, "A Christmas Album".
24Is one of the only 12 people who are an EGOT--one who has at least one of all of the four major entertainment awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. The other ones in chronological order are Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, Liza Minnelli, John Gielgud, Audrey Hepburn, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Tunick, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols and Whoopi Goldberg. Barbra, however, won a Special Tony Award, not a competitive one, and Minnelli won a Special Grammy.
25She studied drama at HB Studio in Greenwich Village in New York City.
26Her favorite modern actress is Meryl Streep.
27Has had the same assistant--a woman called Renata--for 37 years.
28Was considered for the role of Liliane La Fleur in Nine (2009), but the part was eventually given to Judi Dench.
29Was the first choice for Sally Bowles in Cabaret (1972), but turned it down because she wanted to move away from musicals. As a result, the part was given to second choice Liza Minnelli, who went on to win an Academy Award for her performance.
30Is good friends with Shirley MacLaine and Donna Karan.
31Has a great fear of performing live.
32During the filming of Hello, Dolly! (1969), she and co-star Walter Matthau fought bitterly. He disliked her so intensely that he refused to be around her except when required to do so by the script. He is famously quoted as telling her that she "had no more talent than a butterfly's fart". Interestingly, he is clearly seen in the audience at her One Voice (1986) concert at her Malibu ranch, where invitation-only guests paid $5,000 per couple to help establish the Barbra Streisand Foundation, which supports numerous charitable organizations. Apparently, he did not hold grudges.
33While attending the funeral for President Bill Clinton's mother, she heard a church choir sing a song titled "On Holy Ground". The song was written by the choir director, Geron Davis. Upon hearing it she was so moved that she wanted to record it. The song appeared on her album "Higher Ground".
34(July 14, 2007) Played her first ever concert in Ireland in the palatial grounds of Castletown House, County Kildare.
35In 2006 she donated $11,750,000 to the Barbra Streisand Foundation, numerous civil liberties, environmental and civil rights organizations "dedicated to democratic values".
36Was considered for the part of Dwan in King Kong (1976).
37Is close friends with Dustin Hoffman and Dick Van Dyke.
38Has sold 71.5 million albums in the US.
39Turned down the role of Eva Peron in Evita (1996). She was the first choice of Ken Russell, who was the first director attached to the film.
40Directed four different actors in Oscar-nominated performances: Amy Irving, Nick Nolte, Kate Nelligan and Lauren Bacall.
41Lost the 1964 Tony award for Best Actress in a Musical (nominated for "Funny Girl") to Carol Channing, who won for "Hello, Dolly"--a role Streisand played in the movie version (Hello, Dolly! (1969)).
42Is one of only five actors/actresses to have both a #1 single and an Oscar for best actor/actress. The others are 'Frank Sinatra' (Best Supporting Actor), Jamie Foxx, Cher and Bing Crosby.
43Interviewed in "Directors Close Up: Interviews with Directors Nominated for Best Film by the Directors Guild of America", ed. by Jeremy Kagan, Scarecrow Press, 2006.
44[June 8, 2005] Manager Martin Erlichman announced 2006 20 City Fall Charity Tour.
45She was awarded the American National Medal of the Arts in 2000 by the National Endowment of the Arts in Washington D.C.
46In a controversial decision, she was allowed to become a voting member of the Academy prior to her first film, Funny Girl (1968), even being released and won the Oscar in a tie with Katharine Hepburn in The Lion in Winter (1968) a few months later.
47One of the elite actors who have nabbed an Oscar for their first film role.
48Film output toned down considerably after The Main Event (1979). She's only acted in six films since.
49While a struggling artist in the early 1960s, she lived at 1157 Third Avenue in Manhattan over Oscar's Salt of the Sea Restaurant. She shared the tiny $62-per-month apartment with Elliott Gould, who would later become her husband.
50Columbia Pictures wanted to cast Shirley MacLaine as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl (1968). However, Ray Stark, who produced the Broadway show and was Brice's son-in-law, insisted on Streisand repeating her Broadway role. Several co-stars later publicly blasted Streisand and director William Wyler for much of their scenes being cut in favor of focusing almost entirely on Streisand. Columbia was considering Frank Sinatra for the role of Nicky Arnstein, which she vetoed because she didn't like him. The final musical number, "My Man", was filmed "live" to both maximize Streisand's dramatic rendition and because she hated the lip-syncing process. At the time of the film's release, she was also a voting member of AMPAS.
51Stepmother of Josh Brolin, J. Brolin and Molly Brolin.
52Both of her husbands, Elliott Gould and James Brolin, starred in Capricorn One (1977).
53Godmother of Caleigh Peters

Previously, she was nominated twice for a Tony: in 1962 as Best Supporting or Featured Actress (Musical) for "I Can Get It for You Wholesale," and in 1964 as Best Actress (Musical) for portraying Fanny Brice in "Funny Girl," a signature role she recreated in her Oscar- winning performance in the film version of the same name, Funny Girl (1968).

#Quote
1[on having to establish eating a 50-ounce steak in The Guilt Trip (2012)] That's where the filmmaker in me came out. The actress didn't want to do that scene. I said, "Can I come up with something other than eating?" But I thought it would serve the film so I said, "OK, I'll do it". But it was hard. I don't eat steak. One bite for me is enough. So they had to devise a way to make things look like steak. I still had to eat it for three days.
2[on Dustin Hoffman] We were in the same acting school when I was 16, 17 years old. I used to babysit to get free acting lessons, and he was the janitor.
3[on playing the mother of a young man in The Guilt Trip (2012)] The fact that I had a son made a big difference. I could relate this to my son and the times we went through, those rebellious periods, how you're walking on eggshells, how you don't want to say the wrong thing but you're always saying the wrong thing.
4[on Zach Galifianakis] In life I'm not a prude. In film I'm still a prude. Like when I saw that movie The Hangover (2009) with the guy Javalopolis? He was naked in the elevator, and I heard later it was not his real thing. But everybody thinks it's his real thing.
5When I sing, people shut up.
6[on the lack of Academy recognition of Yentl (1983)] In Hollywood a woman can be an actress, a singer, a dancer. But don't let her be too much more.
7My niece saw Funny Girl (1968) and said, "How come you're singing so many songs from Glee (2009)?".
8[on connecting] What is exciting is not for one person to be stronger than the other . . . but for two people to have met their match and yet are equally as stubborn, as obstinate, as passionate, as crazy as the other.
9I arrived in Hollywood without having my nose fixed, my teeth capped, or my name changed. That is very gratifying to me.
10One thing's for sure: now when I look at Funny Girl (1968), I think I was gorgeous. I was too beautiful to play Fanny Brice.
11I hate tooting my own horn, but after Steven Spielberg saw Yentl (1983), he said, "I wish I could tell you how to fix your picture, but I can't. It's the best film I've seen since Citizen Kane (1941)".
12I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy, and driven.
13The audience is the barometer of the truth.
14Oh God, don't envy me, I have my own pains.
