Report on Barbra's Tribute to Warren Beatty...

BarbraNews has caught an early screening of the forthcoming US Premiere of AFI Tribute to Warren Beatty, which will air on USA Network on July 8th.

"We became friends because we had a lot in common... acting, politics, and health concerns! Some men ask for your telephone number... he asked for my cholesterol number..."

Barbra also recalled her missed opportunities of working with Warren...

"AFI is honoring him tonight because he's made some great movies... but what I think about is all the scripts he never sent me... Bonnie And Clyde he gave to Faye... Shampoo went to Goldie and Julie... Reds to Diane... BUT I did get to be in one Warren Beatty Production... The Concert for George McGovern in 1972. I wasn't doing live performances then, but Warren is very persuasive, and impressive as a matter of fact, he masterminded everything from the invitations... to getting famous people as ushers (like Jack Nicholson, Burt Lancaster, Cass Elliott I remember, and after all the insecurity and stage fright, I was really that Warren made me perform because it for a man I truly admire... Senator McGovern. America would have been so much better off the past 36 years if you had spent just a little time in the White House! So please stand up - and let us all thank you for all you've done for our country."
