Barbra Streisand and husband James Brolin reveal saucy secret they have kept for decades years on their 25th anniversary

Barbra Streisand and James Brolin, renowned for their enduring love story, recently marked their 25th anniversary. While their relationship has been an open book to the media, the couple recently shared a surprising revelation about their journey together.

Their romance began with a blind date, where Streisand was expecting someone quite different from the bald-headed Brolin who showed up. Despite her initial candid remark about his hair, Brolin was charmed, recognizing Streisand as his soulmate.

Though it took Streisand a few more dates to be sure, the couple eventually fell deeply in love and exchanged vows in 1998. Both had previous marriages: Streisand to Elliot Gould and Brolin to Jane Agee and Jane Smithers, each with their own children.

Brolin, utterly devoted to his wife, once confessed, “Every night is a new adventure. Sleeping is a waste of time. I can’t wait to see her again in the morning.”

Their recent revelation came during an interview with Gayle King, where Brolin confessed to celibacy for three years before meeting Streisand, citing disillusionment from past relationships. Streisand jokingly scolded him for disclosing this, while King expressed disbelief, to which Brolin admitted that the first night with Streisand was indeed “wild.”

Despite his initial reluctance to pursue another relationship, meeting Streisand changed Brolin’s perspective entirely. It was after his persistent proposals that Streisand finally accepted, marking the beginning of their enduring love story.
