One of the most epic romances of Barbra Streisand’s romantic history is the relationship she had with hairdresser-turned-movie producer Jon Peters. The two were together from 1973 until 1982—almost a decade!

The pair met when Peters, then a hairdresser, put the word out with friends that he was dying to do the actress’ hair—even for free. Meanwhile, Streisand found herself admiring a woman’s haircut at a party. It turns out the stylist was Peters. The two met and instantly fell in love.

Streisand is credited with giving Peters his career as a movie producer. She brought him on as a collaborator to her film projects, bringing him on as a fellow producer for projects like the 1976 remake A Star is Born. However, both Streisand and Peters had big personalities, which caused frequent clashes. Eventually, when Streisand was starting work on her directorial debut, Yentl, in 1982, she had to leave for Europe. Peters had been getting frustrated with her dedication to the project and felt neglected. The two decided to separate.

Even after their separation, the pair have remained lifelong friends. Streisand is even the godmother to two of Peters’ daughters that he shares with his ex-wife Christine Forsyth.

Who are Barbra Streisand's boyfriends?

Many men have competed for the affections of Barbra Streisand. In addition to her relationships with Elliot Gould, James Brolin and Jon Peters, Streisand has had several other high-profile relationships.

In the 1960s, Barbra Streisand apparently had a romance with football legend Joe Namath. During her marriage to Gould, in the late ‘60s Streisand reportedly had a scandalous affair with her Funny Girl costar Omar Sharif. She is also rumored to have had an affair with Kris Kristofferson on the set of A Star is Born during her relationship with Jon Peters in the ‘70s. After her separation from Gould, Streisand dated Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, the father of Justin Trudeau. She was briefly linked to her What’s Up, Doc? costar Ryan O’Neal after that.

She has been rumored to have had a brief, maybe even just physical, tryst with Warren Beatty during the ‘70s as well. It is also rumored she and The Way We Were costar Robert Redford had some kind of romantic connection — both have admitted to being attracted to the other during filming. In the early ‘80s, from 1980 until 1983, it is alleged Streisand and actor Richard Gere engaged in a romance.

Another of Streisand’s longest relationships was with Baskin-Robbins heir Richard Baskin, which lasted from 1983 until 1987. Baskin himself was a burgeoning songwriter when the two met and this led to collaborations between the two.

In the late ‘80s, Streisand dated actor Don Johnson for a period of time, with her reportedly leaving Baskin to pursue the Miami Vice star. That was allegedly followed by a short romance with Clint Eastwood in 1989. Streisand has found herself falsely romantically linked with director Steven Spielberg in the press, a relationship both deny ever happened as the two are and always have been just friends.

She also was reported to have dated composer James Newton Howard in 1991. She followed that with a brief fling with actor Liam Neeson sometime in 1991 to 1992. In 1992, Streisand was romantically linked to tennis great Andre Agassi, despite her being 51 and him being in his 20s. She is rumored to have engaged in a romantic affair with Prince Charles (now King Charles) in 1994, however, this has never been confirmed by the singer/actress—though the King has long been publicly known to have a crush on her. In the mid-1990s, she is said to have briefly dated ABC World News Tonight newsman Peter Jennings. Around this time she was also briefly rumored to have dated actor Jon Voight.

That brings us to her current marriage with James Brolin, who she met in 1996 and has been with ever since. A real Hollywood ending, it seems Streisand has found a true lasting love!
