This from the New York Post’s Page Six:
BLEEDING-heart liberal Barbra Streisand is such a rabid hater of President Bush that she freaked out when stepson Josh Brolin told her he’d accepted Oliver Stone‘s offer to star in “W.” as the commander in chief. “She said: ‘How much are you getting paid?’ I told her it was a very low fee. She said, ‘Then why are you doing it?’ ” Brolin tells The Times of London. “She was furious and would not talk to me. I kind of liked that one.”
According to this logic—the actor who plays my enemy is also my enemy—how they heck did Babs respond back in 2002 when her husband, James Brolin, played a Republican governor and presidential candidate on The West Wing who was clearly based on George W. Bush? Come to think of it, maybe what’s really freaking her out is the reminder that both her husband and son bear a physical resemblance to her bête noire.
