Babs ‘film snub’ fury

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

BAR­BRA Streisand is an­gry af­ter al­legedly be­ing snubbed in a re­make of one of her most fa­mous movies.

She had been tipped for at least a cameo in a new ver­sion of A Star Is Born, for which she won a best song Os­car and best ac­tress Golden Globe in 1976.

Babs, 75, seemed cer­tain to ap­pear when her ex-boyfriend Jon Peters – her co­pro­ducer on the orig­i­nal block­buster – was named as sole pro­ducer of the re­boot.

But it’s said he has re­fused to of­fer her a part, even though she’s been un­of­fi­cially coach­ing Lady Gaga on the lead char­ac­ter she made fa­mous more than four decades ago.

A close friend said: “She was thrilled that Gaga got the big role in the re­make and they have be­come close since Bar­bra took her un­der her wing.

“But not even Gaga, with all the clout she wields, has been able to get her a to­ken ap­pear­ance.

“That re­ally hurt at first, but now Bar­bra is steam­ing mad at the way she is be­ing com­pletely over­looked.”
