Barbra Streisand cloned her dog

The legendary performer dished about politics, her career and more.

Here are a few of the biggest takeaways:

1. Streisand, 75, owns three dogs: Coton de Tulears named Miss Scarlett, Miss Violet and Miss Fanny. Scarlett and Violet were cloned from cells taken from her 14-year-old dog Samantha, who died in 2017.

"They have different personalities," Streisand said. "I'm waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have [Samantha's] brown eyes and her seriousness."

2. Streisand said she agreed to direct the Oscar-nominated 2016 movie "Hidden Figures," but the scriptwriter, Ted Melfi, ended up with the job. "He did a good job," Streisand said. "I wish I had directed it."

According to Donna Gigliotti, the movie's producer, "I was pretty far down the road with Ted Melfi. If the timing had been different, the result might have been different."

5. The only roles Streisand said she's interested in playing are that of Mama Rose in a big-screen adaptation of the musical "Gypsy," and real-life French actress Sarah Bernhardt.

7. Don't expect any new tours from Streisand. "I still have stage fright," she said. "I'm not going to sing live again."
