If there was a competition held for celebrities least likely to have starred in an adult film, Barbra Streisand would have to be towards the top of the list. And yet, according to FilmThreat, during the early '70s the Oscar-winning actress and legendary songstress was not only rumored to have starred in a film described as "badly made pornography," but one that a "fly-by-night company advertising in adult magazines" even attempted to market under the title Barbra Streisand in Hardcore!
Amazingly, Babs herself even addressed the ludicrous gossip in her 1977 Playboy interview (via FilmThreat). "I couldn't resist the temptation to see what the actress looked like — and also to check out her performance — so we got a copy," the Meet the Fockers actress said, adding, "The film, naturally, is very blurred. The girl has long hair, like I did back in the Sixties, although she was chubby, while I was very skinny. But the dead giveaway came when the camera zoomed in on her hands around the guy's you-know-what. There they were: short, stubby fingers! Definitely not mine. So all you would-be buyers, don't waste your money."
Also, just FYI, the singing legend bared nothing but her soul for Hugh Hefner's risqué mag, so people who purchased a copy looking to sneak a peek at at a disrobed funny girl were out of luck as well.
