Barbra Streisand Opts For Comfort

Barbra Streisand prefers to be comfortable than look glamorous.

The Hollywood actress wears comfy ensembles while lounging around her home and opts for trousers with elastic waists instead of formalwear when she is relaxing.

She said: "I always wear the same thing at home. I can't be bothered with jewellery. My pants have elastic waists. I like to be comfortable. There are so many more important things to worry about."

In her singing heyday, the 67-year-old star was known for wearing glamorous outfits onstage.

However, Barbra admits it was because she was confused rather than trying to make a fashion statement.

She explained to Parade.com: "I stopped wearing them when people said it was a gimmick. But the truth is, I didn't know what you were supposed to wear. I'd never been in a nightclub until the first time I sang in one. I just knew women were supposed to wear beautiful gowns. So I bought what I thought was beautiful.

"The tension of opposites has always attracted me. Wool with silk. Tweed with chiffon. Even in my house, there are crude beams varnished to look like furniture. It's the way I see things."
