15 Multi-Talented Directors Who Starred In Their Own Movies
Barbra Streisand: Yentl
Barbra Streisand is iconic in everything she does, and that goes for directing, producing, co-writing, and starring in Yentl. Did we mention she sings, too? The 1983 musical follows the story of Yentl Mendel, who decides to live as a man in order to receive an education in Jewish religious law. This film has given us important content including the song “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” and the medical term “Yentl Syndrome,” which identifies how heart attacks differ in men and women, often leading to misdiagnosis. Babs may be last on this list, but she is certainly not least, having directed and starred in a number of other movies while also maintaining a fierce musical career.
