Barbra Called 'Boob' On Fockers Set
BARBRA STREISAND has picked up a bizarre nickname from actress TERI POLO while filming the sequel to MEET THE PARENTS - BOOB.
Streisand stars as BEN STILLER's mother and DUSTIN HOFFMAN's wife in MEET THE FOCKERS, which also stars Polo, ROBERT DE NIRO and BLYTHE DANNER.
But rather than behave in a star-struck manner around her legendary co-stars, Polo has opted instead to have fun with them.
She says, "It's crazy. Dustin Hoffman is a five-year-old kid trapped in a grown man's body. And Barbra Streisand has an amazing sense of humour.
"The director (JAY ROACH) thought that I called her a boob, and Barbra laughed. So from then on, I decided that my nickname for her was going to be Boob. She answers to it too - just ask her."21/05/2004 12:40
