Streisand, Rogen bond on `The Guilt Trip’
Question of the Day
“And you go Jewish,” Rogen added with a laugh.
Streisand then reminded him, “There are a lot of very famous Jewish entertainers,” echoing every Jewish mother ever.
The mutual respect between the two was evident when they discussed their upcoming projects. Rogen just finished his co-directorial debut, “The End of the World,” which he also wrote and produced.
“How did you find dealing with your actors?” Streisand asked. “Because your actors were all your friends, right? So you could say anything to them.”
Rogen said it made it easier in some ways and more difficult in others. The actors all play themselves, he said, and he and Streisand shared a laugh about potential character discussions on set between actor and director.
“You hired me for me, and this is what I want to do!” Streisand laughed.
When she revealed that she’s having trouble finding financing for her next directorial project, Rogen commiserated. “It’s tough to get a movie going,” he said.
“If anything, it showed me that I should maintain sanity,” he said. “There’s no excuse to be crazy. Because Barbra’s not crazy. She acts very reasonably and she can get away with a lot of (stuff) that she doesn’t pull. I’ve seen people with much less power than her get away with crazier (things) than she’s ever pulled… She could go bonkers and she doesn’t do anything.”
“I’m like this nice person,” Streisand said. “Why do I have this strange reputation?”
“I’m saying you could,” Rogen said. “I think people project what they would maybe do if they had as much power as you.”
All she did was move “The Guilt Trip” sets a little closer to her house.
