First Press Interview for THE GUILT TRIP.

Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen play mother and son in the upcoming comedy The Guilt Trip, and their on-screen roles seemed to seep into their real lives during Nancy O'Dell's sit down with the movie stars.

In observing how Streisand's maternal instincts came out around Rogen in the interview, Nancy was curious about how similar Streisand is compared to Rogen's biological mom.

"They're both very high-functioning people," Rogen said, drawing dubious looks from his co-star. "It means you're very aware of everything that's happening ... Nothing gets passed you."

Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) directs the flick which follows a young inventor (Rogen) and his mother (Streisand), who embark on a road trip together while trying to sell Rogen's new product. But each of them has an ulterior motive: He plans on reuniting his mother with a former flame, while she plans on forcing him to get over his phobia of commitment in relationships.

"I call this a different kind of love story, because it's not just funny -- it's touching," said Streisand, to which Rogen quipped, "It makes it seem really dirty when you describe it like that."

The Guilt Trip opens Christmas Day. Watch the video to see the comedian and the Oscar winner play a speed round of our pop-culture word association game.

Barbra States Her Proud Support For President Barack Obama

WASHINGTON, DC—The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) released a video today featuring renowned actress and singer Barbra Streisand stating her proud support for President Barack Obama. Streisand has been a longtime supporter of the President and felt it essential to lend her voice during these crucial final days of the 2012 campaign.

“We are extremely humbled and honored to work with Barbra Streisand on this video,” said NJDC Chair Marc R. Stanley. “Ms. Streisand is a legendary actress, a longtime icon in our community, and a vaunted political activist. She has been supportive of President Obama from the beginning and wanted to help our efforts to educate voters about the President’s true record on Israel.”

 “As a lifelong advocate for women’s and LGBT issues, Streisand is truly frightened by the giant step backwards a Romney-Ryan ticket represents,” said NJDC President and CEO David A. Harris. “She is committed to doing everything she can to make it clear why President Obama will be the choice for Jewish voters.”
