Babs Defends Her Playing Of Mama Rose

Here’s Barbra Streisand‘s defense of her playing Mama Rose, who should start off within range of 40 (Babs is 70), in a movie version of “Gypsy“: “Some people look old at 45. Some people look younger at my age…. I saw CGI of an actor that made him go from 60 to 30, by the way. What they can do now, technically.” If we’re going to technically alter all performers from now on, I’d prefer that a hologram of Ethel Merman star in this absurd vanity project.
