Barbra Streisand Says Lady Gaga’s “A Star Is Born” Remake Is “Very, Very, Good”

The singer also revealed she’s a fan of Ryan Murphy's "American Crime Story."

Barbra Streisand sat down with Ryan Murphy Friday night at the Paley Center in L.A, where the icon shared her thoughts on the upcoming remake of A Star is Born.

“Oh, I can’t say too much,” Streisand teased. “I haven’t seen too much, but it’s good. It’s very, very good.”

She, of course, starred in the 1976 version of the film with Kris Kristofferson, which was previously made with Janet Gaynor in 1937 and with Judy Garland in 1954.

The new incarnation stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, who also directs. It was originally slated released this summer, but has been pushed back to October 5, 2018.

Streisand went on to reveal she’s been watching Murphy’s American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, which recounts the murder spree Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) went on culminating in the murder of Versace (Edgar Ramirez) in 1997.

“I binge-watched your show last night, Gianni Versace, but it’s very scary to me,” she told Murphy. “I have to go fast. I like the parts with Penelope Cruz [who plays Donatella Versace] and Edgar Ramirez, but I don’t like [ Cunanan]. He’s so good that it’s so awful.”

Streisand is rumored to be working with Murphy and Dear Evan Hanson star Ben Platt in the upcoming Netflix series The Politician. The hourlong musical-comedy follows a wealthy Santa Barbara resident (Platt) who decides to run for office—and, yes, there will be musical numbers.
